If you have landed on this blog post, you are likely looking for SEO help to get your web page a higher rank or to use a free keyword search tool to see where the keywords you want to use rank on the world wide web.

Keyword research is never easy. You always want to find that keyword or Keywords that will rank well and bring you web traffic. I would suggest to use long-tail keywords to get your page rank and not focus on one-word keywords as you will have trouble getting on page one of google.
For those of you not familiar with what long-tail keyword means. A long–tail keyword is a keyword phrase that contains at least three words (though some say two or more is considered long–tail). Long–tail keywords are used to target niche demographics rather than mass audiences. In other words, they’re more specific and often less competitive than generic keyword terms.
If you are starting out on your SEO adventure or you are looking to do an SEO overhaul, do focus on long-tail keywords. Remember, SEO does take time. I always tell my clients, that SEO will take 3-6 months for your pages to get a decent page rank. Never guarantee a page 1 ranking because if the long-tail keyword is competitive, other sites could have more back links, the web page has been around longer, the long-tail keyword is used throughout the web page (title tag, h1, body), there are many factors when it comes to SEO. Just never ever promise a page one ranking to your clients!
