Hi..........Why do long-tail keywords seem to be easier to SEO?

Recommended Answers

Because there is far less competition for the top spot.

Lots and lots of different shoe store websites are all trying to rank for “shoes”. But there’s far fewer trying to rank for “blue running shoes with orange laces”.

Long tail keywords have low keyword difficulty. Means not many people are trying to rank for these keywords or paying for those keywords to rank inorganically. Search volumes for long tail keywords are comparatively low but you can rank for them with minimum efforts.

Long Tail Keywords are easier to rank than common keywords because fewer websites compete for high rankings in the result pages of Google.
