Keywords, long and short

Keywords, long and short

Keywords Are Buzzwords

Keywords or buzzwords are words that a person is most likely to type (or speak) into their search engine. 

You may also have heard of short and long tail keywords.

 

Short Tail  keywords are short phrases such as: counselor, christian counselor, childrens counselor

Long Tail keywords expand on the thought of the short keyword so christian counselor may become female christian counselor for children near …

Do you need to optimize for both?  

Not really, if you are optimizing for long tail keywords the short tail keywords will fall into place.  

Since the voice search explosion is here, it is even more important to pay attention to the long tail getting the questions answered that people may ask.. WHO HOW WHAT WHERE 

FAQ pages are great to use toward this.  The HOW do I make an appointment, WHERE are you located, WHAT services do you provide

 

Voice Search Text Search

Voice Search Text Search

Searching is searching, right?  Not necessarily. With the changes in technology, searching is changing to.  People would type in short phrases into their search engine to get an answer, where now they ask an entire question. THEN:  gluten free food NOW:  Where can I find gluten free foods near me? So for your website to address the new way people search : You need to answer the questions (be sure your product or service has all the pertinent information provided) .   After the Hey Google (Or Siri, etc) they often ask a question Where can I find …. What is … near me. Be sure your site is up to speed by being both HTTPS Secure and Mobile Friendly Update your location information if your site is also a ‘brick and mortar’ business, available to the public walk ins.
