Are You Using Long-Tail Keywords to Target Your Audience?
I work with a lot of people who are new to blogging for affiliate marketing income and they are clueless when it comes to using keywords, especially, the long-tailed ones that can target their audience.
I made a lot of money in a competitive dating and relationship niche by using long-tailed keywords to target my market. The only way to compete against the big boy
With long-tail keywords you can target an exact audience looking for a specific solution!
Long-Tail Keywords Examples
Let’s look at “Growing a Vegetable Garden“
How can we use that in a long-tail keyword that will target a specific audience?
Start broad in your search…
growing a vegetable garden
how to grow a vegetable garden
how to grow a vegetable garden in small spaces … ahh.. now we’re talking
Do I make sense?
Do Low Searches Turn You Off?
A lot of people are turned off when they see lower traffic averages in their keyword tool for these long-tail keyword examples, but the truth is, that the more narrow you can target your market, the better you can serve them.
Another positive about these low traffic averages is that they are not as competitive as the higher ones. You can easily rank for them in days or weeks instead of months or years.
You’re going to rank for more than one keyword if you’re genuinely giving good information about your topic. Google is not stupid, and they are all about bringing back the best and most relevant information first…after their paid ads of course 😉
If you are STAYING ON TOPIC and really delivering on your long-tail keywords, you can be sure you’re going to rank for a lot of relevant phrases.
The more you do this – the better you will get.
Think like the customer.
