Every Blogger wants to drive more and more readers to their blog so that they can turn those readers into their blog subscribers. And for increasing their daily blog traffic many of them search for many online resources, start reading various e-books, start using tools for finding best ways which can help them bringing tons of search engine traffic to their blog.

If you have read my previous blog posts then I have already discussed the importance of using keywords in your blog posts. Keywords plays the most significant role in deciding your blog’s search engine ranking. It’s all up to you that how effectively you create your blog posts.

By targeting your primary keyword you can easily get higher search engine ranking for your blog. I’m not saying that you should use the same keyword again and again in your articles. But today, I’ll be sharing a new strategy for keyword stuffing called long tail keywords.

If you are already into some serious blogging then you might already know about this term. But in case you don’t have any idea about long tail keywords then keep scrolling down. Today, in this article I’m going to tell you all about this term.

What is Long Tail Keywords?

Before getting started with anything, let’s first discuss what does this term actually means?

As the name shows, long tail keywords mean something lengthier. By proper use of these keywords, you can easily gain tons of visitors to your blog and can also increase search engine website ranking.

Let’s understand this thing more easily by taking an example:-

Suppose you are writing an article on “Top proven ways to make online money”. Here your primary keyword (commonly known as seed keyword) is “make online money” But when you talk about searching for long tail keywords than phrases like how to make online money quickly, how to make online money through affiliate marketing, how to make online money through infolinks, how to make online money without any investments etc. Hope, you have now understood what I’m saying.

Those days are gone when one targets a primary keyword and repeat it again and again (keyword stuffing) in their blog posts. Though you might not rank for your primary keyword but you will surely get higher ranking for your primary keyword.

How to Search for Long Tail Keywords?

Many newbie bloggers ask me that how and where should they search for long tail keywords. Well, there are two different approaches for searching long tail keywords. You can either use the manual method or take help of different tools used for such purposes.
