  1. Glad I came across this site. I have a website and have been following along with wealthy affiliate tutorials, but as far as I can remember Kyle doesn’t mention anything about long tail keywords, so I have not been using them but have noticed other people have.
    I wanted to read all about it. So thanks for the information. Will remember that that long tail keywords need to be three to four-word phrases or longer

    • Yes Jenny, and long tail Keywords are far easier to rank for in the long run, as they are far less competitive. All the best and hope you are enjoying your training with Wealthy Affiliate.
