Do I Really Need Another Keyword Tool?
Okay, so here's the real truth. We have about a billion keyword tools around our office on the 5 or so computers that we use everyday. Do we use them all? Sometimes but not really. The fact of the matter is that there are keyword tools out there that produce different data and have different functions. I don't use SEO Spyglass the same way that I use Ultimate Niche Finder.
So why should you get Long Tail Pro? It's a very easy answer. It works and it has features that you're going to want when trying to not only rank your seed keywords, but also bring in a lot of traffic from the long tail rankings. Long tail keywords are the diamond in the rough. We live in a time when the Google algorithms are ranking long tail keywords higher and higher. Plus, when you rank for a long tail keyword you also rank for a seed keyword.
For instance, if I'm trying to rank for "Does Long Tail Pro Really Work?" I'm also going to rank for Long Tail Pro. This goes for any niche that you're trying to rank in and it's extremely powerful when used in tiers. What do I mean by that? Well, here's a little insight.
Let's say that you're money site is trying to rank for "teeth whitening." So for your 1st tier backlinking site you rank for the long tail phrase "how does teeth whitening affect enamel?" And then you rank for another long tail phrase on tier 2 and so on and so on. Add in PR distribution to your tiers and Long Tail Pro is the ultimate long tail keyword tool on the market. I love this tool when using SENuke and Magic Submitter.
What Sets Long Tail Pro Apart From Other Keyword Tools? (LTP compared to SE Cockpit)
Well, let's see here. There are a few things that set it apart from other keyword tools on the market. The first being that it's one of the only keyword tools that I have found that specializes in long tail phrasing. As stated before, long tail phrasing is hot right now and it looks like Google, Bing and Yahoo will be coming up with algorithms to exploit long tails even more in the future.
The other feature that I love about this tool is that it integrates the SEMoz API so you can not only check the keyword competitiveness of your searches but you can also check out the top 10 websites that are ranking for the keyword you're trying to rank for. As we all know, SEMoz is the king of keyword analytics, but also awesome with giving users updated competitive stats to work with.
Long Tail Pro also has some great features that will save you a ton of time. The first is that it's integrated with the Google Adwords tools so when you queue up your campaign you will sign into your Google Account. Run the tools and get your long tail keywords then you can click on the "keyword planner."
This automatically takes you into the Google Adwords interface so you can immediately input your long tail keywords into any PPC campaigns that you want to run. This is great for agencies or any freelance SEO consultant.
Another great feature is the "Show Domains" feature. So, after you've run you're keyword searches and have your long tails you can immediately do a GoDaddy search for domains available with the long tails. Talk about Tier 2 gold! The Rank Checker is another feature that you can use to see how your site is ranking for current keywords in Google, Yahoo or Bing.
Should I Buy Long Tail Pro?
That's really up to you. Do you think that you'll use it? We do. We use it all the time now to really find highly profitable niche based phrases. If you're using link building strategies to boost your web traffic, this is a tool that will take you further. Long Tail Pro has helped us really put a sound marketing plan together for tiered link building and it can help you rank fast.
There are a lot of keyword tools on the market and we've tried almost every one of them. Long Tail Pro is a great software package that can be used for your money sites, SENuke XCR blasting and article scraping, not to mention getting amazing ideas for content creation on your money sites.
