  4. You have really done a lot of research! Well done!

    Here is another tips-

    You can find a long tail low competitive keywords instantly by using the Google keyword planner by selecting- Keyword Filters >> Competition >> Low . Whenever you search for a new keyword and ad group ideas.

  5. What a presentation Ankit. Although I have read couple of articles on the similar topic, but the way you have presented this article is simply unique.
    Good luck Bro 🙂

  6. Needless to say that you have missed some thing, but i have an point when we see at google trends what is the ideal period we should consider whether search on that specify term is rising because when we search at 12 months it shows different result but most of the times the niche I choose may be very new so how to go about it.
    Also thank you for this fantastic article, its always learning with your articles.

      Hi Harsha,

      It’s a good question. As per my understanding, I check last 3 months data. Also, it depends on your keywords.
      Trendy keywords won’t show you much information. Check trends on various places. You can have a look at YouTube videos views also. 😉

      Thanks for your comment.

  7. This post is quite helping bloggers bu my question is that, I am using Google Keyword planner a free tool then would it work like the the pro tools.

    I wrote an article of about 2000 words with about 6% keyword density and thought it would rank in search engines but the result is not as i thought.It doesn’t come up on search engines even when i write full post title.

    Did i used keyword density much than it should be?
    Waiting for your Reply 🙂

    1. When u r talking about keyword density, I presume that you are dwelling on Focus Keyword. Your Focus Keyword is the keyword for which you want your blog post to rank for. The ideal keyword density should not be more than 1.5% to 2% of the total word count. More so, if you are using a long tail keyword as a focus keyword. Also, don’t forget to use keyword substitution by using similar terms. You can get them from Latent Semantics Generator.

  12. Hello Ankit,

    You shared a great article, really informative and very helpful to know about Long Tail Keywords. Yet I am not som much focused on Long tail keywords, I try to work on small keywords. But after reading your article, I think I have to work on Long tail keywords. Hope it will work for me 🙂

    Thanks a lot for sharing this stuff.

  13. awesome share bro will try these tips to get long tail keywords for my micro niche blog 🙂

  14. Actually I do use long tail pro keyword research software to find long tail keywords. One thing I liked here is you shared the importance of LSI keywords, mostly what I’ve seen is bloggers only talk about long tail keywords but LSI is most important.

    Thanks for sharing.

  15. Hi Ankit,
    You wrote a great article. It has solved so many queries regarding keyword search. Thanks for posting such kind of post. I request you to please write a detailed article on competitor analysis with a practical video guide………..Moreover, I have an question in my mind. Should We do Seo after just having one post on blog or should wait for having 10 to 15 posts????

    1. Ankit Singla says:

      Hello Nikhil,

      You can read a detailed article about competitors keyword research on my blog on Monday. It’s almost ready.

      You should do SEO from the very first day after starting your blog. ON page SEO is very important for all the articles but make sure don’t start doing massive OFF page SEO (like link building) in the earlier days. Let your blog grow, post some articles and then you can start doing OFF page SEO too.

      If you can get natural backlinks, then don’t wait even for a single day. Start getting links. They will help you a lot.

      Do, let me know if I can help you further.

      Thanks,
      Ankit

    Hello Ankit!

    I agree that using long tail keywords doesn’t ensures that you are going to rank for this keyword . This is the biggest misconception in the minds of some bloggers.

    The keywords that are suggested by google search are most of the time high competition keywords are difficult to rank while many a times i have seen that google suggests keywords which have monthly searches of less than 100 and are easy to rank . So it is very important for bloggers to judge each and every keyword correctly before using it in their posts.

    If you are focusing for a long tail keyword with low searches then it wont be helpful .

    Other thing , Reditt and wikihow are gold mines for finding long tail keywords . At reditt , you can see what people through out the world are discussing . By looking at the threads there you can easily find amazing keywords that have low competition but high search volume .

    Same is with wikihow. The titles of their articles are optimised to rank higher . Thus one should always looked at the keywords that wikihow is using.

    Also , The suggestions made by the websites such as amazon.com etc are golden keywords . They suggest the keyword for which people are searching for to spend their hard earned cash . These keywords usually work well as per my experience .

    By the way , you have written a remarkable article !! Hats off for this !! rocking man !! 🙂

    Keep producing such wonderful articles and keep increasing the knowledge of the bloggers in the blogosphere .

    Happy blogging !

    Your Friend !
    Nikhil !

  20. Hi Ankit,
    This was a very informative post.
    You just explained everything very nicely and I appreciate your hard work. This post is very long covering all the aspects and all the required examples to explain the topic.
    I must say that this is the best post I have read today and maybe I will not find a post better than that.
    Thanks for such an informative post.
    Regards!
    Happy Blogging.

  21. Really a nice article hopes that will help me to find best keywords for my site……..

  22. There is no doubt that next big thing in SEO is LSI. People have already started using LSI generators to use them in their posts. Thank you for the great tutorial.

  23. Hi Ankit
    Let me first admire you for your unfathomable knowledge on website ranking and best search engine knowledge. I have been following couples of bloggers since last few months vehemently. I stumbled upon your one of the blogs on LSI. Your blogs are worth enriching new entrants like me, who does not wish to follow any hogwash as I myself writing on technologies, startups. leaderships and self-improvement.

    While romping through your blogs I have got a fair idea of using LSI and Longtail keywords. But confusion still seems to be hounding my understanding. So here are those enumerations:

    1-why longtail keywords centric strategy can not be adopted while writing content? As I believe that generic keywords can be used to create long tail keywords and what I know about long tail keywords that they are the combination of generic keywords.
    2-Should longtail keywords be considered in the description or can be used anywhere?
    3-Should it be used wisely based on keyword density?
    4-why content should not be adlib, I mean keywords can be used SEO wise later, as the flow of writing content becomes erratic
    5-is there any available best free tools for keywords apart from keyword planner?
    7-Should we use questions based or point based longtail keywords or is it precursor for ranking as now a days everybody is patterning on the trend

    I know you might have answered some of them in your blog but being an avid learner in my 16th-year experiential journey of my career I keep yearning for learning from champ like you who have great knowledge and grip on the subject.

    Best

    Anyway, thanks a lot for sharing this useful article.

    I have a question: How many monthly search volume you consider while selecting a long tail keyword?

  25. Pradeep Kumar Rana says:

    Very long article but worth reading. I get lots of valuable tips about keyword research. Before this i was thinking using targeted keyword morr and more in article will rank higher in google search. Thanks for this. i will use this tips in my blog

  26. Hi Ankit,

    Thanks!

  27. Long Tail Pro is the best for finding and targeting low competitive keywords, definitely it help webmasters and bloggers to drive more organic traffic.
    Thank you for sharing great info.

  28. Hi Ankit,
    Every time I read your blog, I’ve always ended with bookmarked all of your posts. 🙂
    I’d like to ask you something, suppose my long tail keyword is very competitive and the top 10 position on Google almost all e-commerce stores.
    What I know is it would be hard to compete with them, what’s your opinion about this?
    Thanks

  29. Mehul singh says:

    i always use longtail keywords to my blog beacuse its give you relavant visitors in your site ….and 85% of chances you will on 1st page of google on that particular keywords

    thank:-)

  30. Hello Ankit,
    It’s really a nice post. I loved the manner in which you had explained it.
    Long Tail is cream of SEO, you can get most converting traffic using such magical keywords.
    Thanks for sharing this guide. Keep sharing such articles.

  31. Targeting Long tail keywords can undoubtedly help anyone to rank higher in SERP because they usually have lower competition. And one more benefits of using them is your article start ranking for more phrases that you don’t target.

    Ankit you’ve shared a great detailed and in-depth article about Long Tail Kws. Thank you for your efforts to provide valuable and helpful stuff. It surely helps beginner and intermediate bloggers to learn new things about KWs.
    I have one question: Do you consider the number of search per month when placing any LSI/Long Tail Kws in your articles???

    Take Care and Bye 🙂

  32. Really nice article! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Anyway, do you think that LSI research will change in future?

  33. When I am trying to find good keywords, I try to think of what people would search for in google if they were trying to find my specific post. That usually puts me in the right direction.

  34. Ivor O'Donnell says:

    In long tail keyword research Googe KW tool is better to be paired with tools like SERPstat. Gives me greater span and insight into competition level. Long tails can be artificially twisted – Google will show incorrect competition level for such keywords.

  35. Sir i checked this post ranking you used three keywords differently.
    My first question is we are use focus keywords three times
    2.fk not in ur permalink
    3.its about stop word

    Plese reply me sir this is fact for rankin

  36. Pawan Sahani says:

    Does Google penalize if I use longtail keywords?, as you said in this article; “But even when you provide the highest quality article with long-tail keywords as your targeted keyword, there is a very good chance that you might get penalized with the Google penalties.”
    Thank you

  37. Faisal Zamir says:

    Hi Ankit Kumar!
    Thanks to shear.
    i heard some one that it become cause of duplicate issue when we use long tail keyword.
    Is it true?
    But you defined it in right way

  38. until now i was just adding a generic keyword in a post and was thinking more generic keyword will rank post higher but i was wrong! now i understood about long tail keywords after reading your post

  39. Manoj shah says:

    I really like Quora method because we can get knowledge of what exactly people are searching for and we can easily find the keyword. It’s a free and easy method to know about peoples curiosity. Thanks for your beautiful blog post.

  40. Long tail keywords are sure the best when you want to rank faster on SERP, this is because they are less competitive.
