    I've been reading about  the use of long tail and medium tail keywords. Can someone please give me an explanation of these terms?

    What are examples of long tail and medium tail keywords? Is there such a thing as a short tail keyword?

      "Samples of a long tail keyword" is one smile

      A long tail keyword is simply a longer search term. For example: "Red cars" is a short keyword. Vintage red cars with white wall tires" is a long tail.

      In essence, finding those long tail keywords can often be useful in attracting search engine traffic. You don't want something so obscure and niche that very few people are searching for it, but at the same time, if a good number are looking for that information then you've hit the sweet spot.

      To be honest, other than my title, it's not something I pay much attention to. Google is now so clever that it is able to pick up natural keywords around any topic. So if you were writing about vintage red cars you would naturally include medium and long tail keywords without even thinking about it.

    Long-Tail keywords are very specific longer searchers. These searches individually may not be searched often but overall they are the majority of what is searched for on Google. For example, a keyword could be the name of a game. "Candy Crush Soda Saga" for example. A Long-Tail keyword would be "how to beat level 56 in Candy Crush Soda Saga". It is very specific and exact. Long-Tail keywords tend to be three words or more.

      This is my method and I find that it's pretty effective!

    Hello Daniel, don't you worry about long, short or medium tail key words. All these search terms are important.
    But according to hubpages, hubbers should concentrate on writing "describtive search terms" in their hubs.
    So. I can't give youn examples of these terms here. Even results of google search can fail you at times. SEO, though important can let you down too.
    Write descriptively always in your articles and these long tail or medium tail key words can manifest.
    Good luck, and enjoy the day.

    Apparently long tail keywords are no longer "in" with Google.
