    What are the recommended ways to target longtail and mispelled keywords?

    I have a main website that I'm trying to funnel traffic into. Would it be appropriate and acceptable to make landing pages within the primary website that target these keywords/phrases?

    example: If I had a video site, and wanted to get people to it... and the search term was "fast video downloaders for free" could I just make a landing page on my site called fast-video-downloaders-for-free.html and then go through the process of getting backlinks, bookmarks, etc to it?

    With the terms I've gotten, there's less than 1000 competitors, with 6000-900,000 depending... using Adwords keyword tool...

    and about 10 of them...

    I'm willing to buy seo hosting and setup autoblogs that link back to my main site if that's a better idea. But I rather not buy 10 new domains if I don't have to. Thanks for any help.

    Don't bother going for the miss-spelt keywords it is a complete waste of time seeing as google tells you "did you mean" and then gives the correct spelling.

    It can work for some keywords but still there is less actual click throughs for your site even if you rank top!

    As for longtail most people do make seperate landing pages for the extra keywords to bring in the traffic (i do) and it works great as then you an focus all the seo efforts on each keyword per page.

    so is it enough to just have a well written landing page for the longtail on the same domain as I'm trying to send people to? I've read in places that it should be a html, but is it acceptable to use my cms and just "add new page"?

    What type of SEO techniques would you use if they are hosted on the primary domain to ensure the domain doesn't get slapped.

    so no need to go as far as seperate domains, or autoblogging, etc?

    How do you go about promoting your landing pages? Obviously all the on page SEO is optimized for the keyword, but what methods would you use to get higher rankings without putting the primary domain in jeopardy?

    Just put them on new pages!

    Same as when you add an article to ezinearticles or whatever it is just a subpage of the main site... then you seo that subpage for the keyword you want to rank for!
