Why go after long-tail keywords?
out of over twenty options
Rank Tracker SEO software comes with 24 keyword research tools. You can discover the keywords that you already rank for, find those keywords that your competitors rank for, and use a number of semantic keyword research methods to find related questions, related searches, and autocomplete suggestions. Some of those are general-purpose SEO tools and will deliver a mix of both long-tail and short-tail keywords, while others are designed specifically for finding long-tail keywords. Rank Tracker also comes with filters that will help you isolate long-tail keywords from the lists that contain both long and short keywords.
for you and your competitors
Enter any website or page, be it yours or your competitors', and discover top-performing keywords in any of the most popular search engines. This will give you an understanding of which keywords work well and provide you with a direction for future keyword research and search engine optimization. Furthermore, you can enter up to five competitor websites and discover those keywords that they rank for and you don't. It might be a good idea to borrow those keyword ideas right away — they've been battle-tested by your competitors and proved useful, so there is no reason you shouldn't be using them in your SEO effort.

by applying custom filters
Depending on the keyword generators you choose, there will be varying shares of short-tail keywords mixed in with the long-tail ones. Luckily, each keyword finder is equipped with customizable filters and one of those filters allows you to define the number of words you want in your keywords. Now, long-tail keywords are not always long in terms of the number of words, but, as a rule of thumb, they do tend to be three words or longer. Additionally, the results of all of your keyword searches are added to the keyword sandbox, which means you don't have to filter each of your lists individually — you can do all of them once they are pulled together.

✅ What is a long tail keyword?
Plainly speaking, the more specific the keyword is, the longer its tail. For example, "winter jacket" is a generic, short tail keyword, while "best down jacket under $500" is a specific, long tail keyword. As a rule of thumb, keywords of three or more words are considered long tail.
✅ Why use long tail keywords?
Both short tail and long tail keywords are essential parts of your sales funnel. When people begin exploring the subject, they tend to use simple keywords, like "gaming laptop" or "dslr camera". But, as they are getting closer to making a purchase, the keywords become longer, like "best gaming laptops under $1000" or "full-frame dslr canon". In this regard, short tail keywords are here to grab attention, but long tail keywords are here to close the deal.
