I’m a proud user of Long Tail Pro because it helps me to increase search engine traffic to my blogs.
I have been using this keyword research tool since 2014, so I’m very familiar with its great qualities.
The potential for finding rankable and profitable keywords in almost any niche is a great feature of LTP.
I own 5+ blogs, and I use the long tail pro keyword generator tool to discover the low competition keywords for every one of my blog posts.
If you look at the screenshot below, you will see that I’ve boosted the organic traffic to my blogs.
You can see the search engine traffic improvement of one of my tech blogs. And I’m utilizing LTP to grab the best search phrases related to the blog topics.
LTP Cloud Version
I initially purchased the lifetime version of Long Tail Pro Platinum and was using the desktop version.
I moved to the cloud version because LTP introduced some new features, like serp availability, rank tracker, color coded KC values, and exact search volume among other features.
I was quite impressed with the newly launched features and started using LTP Cloud version to perform my keyword research.
Here’s my favorite features of LTP cloud version:
- Super fast results, faster than the desktop version
- Automatic KC calculation (KC – keyword competitiveness)
- Personal domain analysis
- 10,000 monthly searches
- Advanced options to filter the keywords through monthly searches & advertiser competition
- Step by step video tutorials
How I Configure LTP Cloud To Increase My Organic Traffic
Before crafting any blog post, I visit www.longtailpro.com and enter my seed keyword (the blog topic that needs to be brainstormed).
When clicking the “Retrieve” button, I get the results for my seed keyword.
You can enter five seed keywords, but you can get between 20 to 400 keyword suggestions for each seed keyword mentioned.
Now, it’s time to look at the keyword suggestions, their search volume, and Avg. KC score.
I always choose the focus keyword with medium search volume (say 500 – 2000) and Avg. KC score less than 25 (the lower the KC value, the higher the ranking potential).
Now, look at the below screenshot!
You can see the low competition keywords along with their volume of searches suggested by Long Tail Pro.
I’ll go either with the fourth or fifth keyword suggestion (Watch dubbed anime online free or dubbed amine online free) because they have a decent search volume, low avg. KC and good rank value as well.
Now, I have decided on the primary keyword and got the LSI (Latent Semantic Index) keywords to include the content (I’ll include all the low competition related keywords in my blog post) as well.
In the above screenshot, you can see that I have marked the buttons “+20”. When they are clicked, LTP will provide 20 more relevant search phrase terms for each keyword.
This way it is more likely to grab all the related searches for the main keyword that I have chosen.
You can also perform a competition analysis by clicking the keywords from the dashboard and looking at the Top 10 search results of Google.
Therefore, with the help of the metrics like Avg. KC and the Google Top Results of the primary keyword that I have chosen, I can conclude whether I could rank for the targeted keyword or not.
Now, you might guess that I highly rely on this tool to narrow down my keyword research method.
Of course, your guess is right!
I often use LTP to determine the low competition keywords related to my niches, and hence, the SEO performance of my blogs is improving immensely.
If you don’t understand how search engines work, then you will be missing a lot of organic traffic.
You can quickly decide the primary keyword (focus keyword) and LSI keywords by looking at the Avg. KC values offered by the LTP tool.
If you do SEO keyword research the right way, I’m sure that you will improve your SEO with this fantastic long tail keyword suggestion tool.
I’m glad that I got the opportunity to reveal the strategy of increasing my organic traffic with the Long Tail Pro blog readers.
I would like to know your tactics of getting low-competition keywords that let you rock on the web. Connect with me in the comments section!
