Sorry for the lack of blog posts. I’ll try to get back into the swing of things. Meanwhile, here’s another longtail keyword article that voices the need for HitTail better than I ever could have…
Today’s keyword research tools are simply worthless for finding long tail phrases that have search value.
I have this list of keywords I just wanted to run through an analysis
tool to tell me which words were the best performing on raw search data.
I don’t care about competition, duh, because I am looking for long
tail. (i.e. no competition. Not anyone that I have to worry about anyway.)
Everyone and their sister is writing about “internet marketing” in my
niche because of keyword tools, even Google’s, being so out of touch with
today’s publishers’ ranking needs.
All you get back from all the keyword tools is silly, nonsense phrases
that are all mixed up if they are 3-5 words, or simple two word phrases that
everyone goes after.
