The hardest part for a blogger is identifying the correct title for your blog post. In most cases, bloggers post articles without much consideration to the keywords used for the title. Doing this is suicidal for any blog as Google and other search engines won’t index your articles.
Before you write any article, you must figure out which words readers would use to search for certain information. The problem comes when readers search for more than one word, which we call long tail keywords. For example, someone may search: “Best and cheapest phones in Kenya”. If by chance you used a title with at least 90 % of these words, your article will rank first but if another blogger used 100% of these words in the title, his article will rank higher than yours. Long Tail Keywords is what you have to master in order to succeed in blogging. This especially helps bloggers in competitive niche.
The most unfortunate thing in blogging is that if you don’t choose your long tail keywords correctly, your articles will always rank lower than those who have used the correct words. The ugliness of this is that you will receive less traffic, thus hindering your blog’s SEO ranking.
What has dominated online debate among bloggers is how to identify the correct keywords to use for their blog posts. In most cases, they have used try and error method, others have gone ahead to use various tools designed to help them come up with the best and most accurate keywords. One such tool is Long Tail Pro.This tool has greatly helped several bloggers to identify a combination of common words readers search for online.
