    Long tail keywords are more helpful than general keywords to get traffics, so they are more specific to the searchers needs. People who arrived on your site from long tail keywords are most likely on your site because you offer exactly what they are looking for. Long-tail keywords have less competition than generic keywords. We can easily get rank by long-tail keywords.

    In my opinion, the age of both long tail and short tail keywords are over. in 2015 Google rolled out their sophisticated AI technology called’Rank brain’.According to google the Rank brain is learning a new search query every second. And this will allows it to learns the exact human language.Now It gives more importance to human readability and emotional keywords. including Medium tail keywords and optimizing content for human readability and understanding is the best way to rank better in SERP. And It also look for the CTR, page dwell time and other factors to rank pages.

    if you are trying to drive a lot of traffic to your site, you should use short tail keywords. The challenge here is that if your site is “new” or if your search efforts are just beginning you are getting at the back of a very long line.

    Its because mostly what people search are long-tail keywords, for example, if you want to learn how to make homemade french fries, you will search “How to make homemade french fries” and probably not “homemade french fries”. As you can see the long-tail keyword is more focused and specific on what user needs. That’s the main reason why long-tail keywords are prefered more.
