DKSP EP:42 – Long Tail Keyword Research Using a Simple Researching Method

How do you do Long tail keyword Research?

Keyword Research is one of the most misguided aspects in internet marketing. There are a hundred different methods and theories out there that tells you how to do keyword research.

But most guides and theories out there complicate keyword research to such an extent that it is highly unlikely that you wouldn’t get confused with the entire thing.

In fact, Keyword research used to be extremely overwhelming for me as well and I would spend hours researching keywords with no real results. I had also spent a lot of money on the latest keyword research tool, all of which would be marketed as the next best thing, but would eventually turn out to be nothing more than crap.

Of everything in keyword research, long tail keyword research used to be the most mis-interpreted and consequently the most confusing concept.

And if you are to do a long tail keyword research for the next post you are going to write, then you are sure to spend the next few hours trying to figure it out and end up losing all the time that you could otherwise have used on writing your blog post.

So how do you do long tail keyword research?

In this episode, I am going to show you a simple step by step method that I follow to research long tail keywords so that you don’t spend hours doing something that shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.

How to do Long Tail Keyword Research

I follow a very simple technique to research long tail keywords. And this technique doesn’t take more than 30 minutes. This might not be a technique that a lot of the experts might be using, but this technique yields results.

And since it follows the basic concepts, there is no reason why it would go wrong.

In this episode we will be discussing –

  • Why long tail keyword research is important?

  • A few simple techniques to generate proven long tail keywords with high search volume and low competition
  • How does Google’s autocomplete feature help you in your keyword research?

While I do not recommend buying any expensive softwares for keyword research, Long Tail Pro is something that you would want to go with, if you want to save some time.
