What is Long Tail SEO?
According to Wikipedia: “The long tail in keyword research is basically an expansion of a core, generic, high volume keyword phrase to include numerous combinations and permutations of the keywords and their associated or relevant phrases. These phrases individually are unlikely to account for a great deal of searches, but when taken as a whole, can provide significant traffic.”
Basically, the long tail is all the random search terms – outside of your set keywords that will drive traffic to your site. Maybe each random long tail search term only drives ONE hit, but the total of ALL long tail keywords combined can be more powerful than the total of all targeted keywords.
“Greenhaven Neighborhood” is a main target keyword for my neighborhood niche blog. However, I can also get hits from searches for long tail keyword searches like “homes for sale near Vista Ridge high school“.
