    One is longer tail of the main keyword.

    The other one is the main keyword is not present at all.

    LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing) Keywords, are basically keywords related to your main keyword. Use them with your content (articles, review, etc) and you will notice that your website will rank significantly better. There are various tools that you can use to find LSI Keywords, such as: lsigraph.com.

    It's LSI = Latent Semantic Indexing ... Related keyword on Google/bing search result it's basically the Long tail keyword for main keyword search result.

    Not necessarily the long tail keyword, some LSI Keywords don't contain the main keyword but are closely related to it.
    For example, for the main keyword "SEO" , some LSI Keywords are:

    website optimization techniques
    web page optimization
    getting website on search engines
    how to optimize your website
    how to search engine optimize your website
    search engine optimization tips
    web page optimization best practices
    website optimization service
    website optimization company
    optimize website for search engines

    Hope this helps.
    Cheers!

    Longtails are longtails, LSI are related keywords.

    If your keyword was 'high blood pressure' an example of LSI would be cholesterol, triglycerides, mmHg, doctor, Lipitor, etc.

    Latent semantic indexing keywords are keywords which Google would expect to find in content that is highly relevant to the searched keyword.

    By including this in your content, Google decides that it is highly topically relevant and ranks it higher.

    Use LSI graph or type your keyword into Google KWP, select only keyword ideas closely related to keyword and note down all the unique individual words (not just keywords).

    Knead these into your content and you will see better rankings as a result.

    I thank @Shree for this knowledge.

    If you rank for the term "SEO strategy", you may also rank for "link building" and/or "on-page optimization".
    Those are LSI keywords.

    "LSI" is a way to help google understand the context of your article, remember google spiders can see the keyword 'apple' but apple can mean the brand or it can mean the fruit. So you need a way to help the spider understand fully what you're speaking about and the context you are speaking in, you do this by using 'lsi', so it's not really a set of words but just to help and ensure google can identify what you're talking about. So 'iphone', 'mobile', 'cellphone', 'telecoms' anything to suggest you're referring to the mobile brand rather than the fruit could be classified as a LSI. While for the fruit, 'nutrients', 'sweet', 'fruit', 'banana', anything to suggest similarities to a fruit would then have google classify your article by the 'LSI' and understand you're speaking of fruits.

    Write naturally, spread around phrases that are commonly used when speaking of the topic.

    LSI stands for Latent Semantic Indexing keywords that are semantically related to your primary keyword

    LSI keywords are closely related keywords to the main keyword.
    You should ask yourself when writing the content around a main keyword.
    What sort of questions would you ask yourself when searching for a specific answer to a question?

    What people dismiss when finding LSI keywords is that they forget to ask themselves, what would they type
    in the search box when searching for an answer or a product.

    yes, when you think about it, you will find LSI keywords. Most LSI keyword generators lack this,
    because they are not working like a human brain.

    what we don't see in 2017 is that LSI keywords has more search potential than the exact and long tail keywords.

    Use long tail keyword, it is one of the best way for keyword diversification
