Target long tail keywords

Long tail keywords are 3 or more keyword phrases that drive quality traffic to your site. They are not as competitive as ‘head’ keywords that have high traffic volumes individually but have many competitors too. Another benefit of long tail keywords is that collectively, they represent about 80% of search volume on Google – so there is huge potential here.

Targeting long tail keywords is not always easy but it’s possible to achieve if you research your keywords and their variations and then create quality content for these keywords. So, aim to have full-length content on each page that targets as many keywords as possible without keyword stuffing. If you aim for at least 300-500 words per page that will usually suffice to target your main keywords and a host of long tail keywords that your landing pages will rank for in the
search engines.

marketing plan including:
