Recently I wrote an article about long tail keywords and explained what they are and why you need them. Today it is the turn to talk about short tail keywords. The word short tells you that theses are keywords which are not long. In fact, short tailed keywords only have one or two words. Its also true that they are searched for more often than long tailed keywords. So when someone using a keyword research tool like Keyword Planner sees the large search volume, they tend to think it would be a good idea to use these keywords on their website.
