What is a “Long Tail” Keyword, and Why is it Important for SEO?

Posted by Michael Wilson - Search Marketing Manager

Before we talk about the definition of a long tail keyword, we need to discuss the term “long tail” itself. Long-tail has been in use as statistical term describing frequency distribution since 1946, but has been recently popularized by Chris Anderson, author of the book The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More. This book describes how stocking a large number of products with low demand or have a low sales volume can collectively equal the sales of all but a few very popular single products over a relatively long time period. This is how smaller or specialty companies can compete effectively against large, high volume businesses. The same concept applies to keywords.

What is SEO and Why is It Important?

Posted by Michael Wilson - Search Marketing Manager

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, and in short, SEO is the art of designing and formatting your website in such a way that Google, as well as other internet search engines, can easily understand it and know what your site is for, and then matches it to users who need the type of information that you have on that site.

Web “crawlers” are automated commands designed to catalog the contents of the World-Wide-Web so that the search engines constantly improve their search algorithms and the results generated by them. Part of this is the wording you use in the content you create for your site, but that is only a very small part of SEO.
