What's the difference between keywords and long tail keywords?

    Here would be an example of the difference:

    Keyword: acne cure
    Long Tail Keyword: how can I naturally cure my acne

    The one will get many searches, usually, but will have many competing sites.

    The other will not get many searches but will have so little competition that
    it is easy to get a top search engine ranking for them.

    This is very simplified but essentially, that's the difference.

      I can't add anything to what Steven said except this...

      People search for the damndest things!

      Go to Seo keyword tool and type in 'How to' without the will really embarrass you what people are searching for!

      Go to 'DIY' and the first hit is building a chicken coop! Of all things?

      It is extremely hard to get your site indexed for "Acne Cure", but those few people that are searching for " What Acne Cure Will Stop All These Craters on My Face" will make you a bundle if you're the first site they see

    So I am fairly new to CPA marketing and have developed my first campaign, I get a $1 for every lead and current campaign converting at about 11%. Using Bing ads I am paying around .05c per click and target close to 3000 words. Because I am bidding so low for keywords I only get about 20 clicks per, but I am try to make up with volume and research new low cost keywords. Traffic is driven direct to a landing page and then to the offer. At first I was capturing emails and then directed to the offer but found conversions even lower, also for this campaign I have no real interest is staying in contact with the people who sign up to the offer.

    I'm really good at turning over content quick; what slows me down is research and also bidding on projects. I've read that Textbroker is far superior to iWriter in terms of number of jobs and approval rate (apparently the later is marketed to content buyers in a way that creates really high expectations and high rejection rates as a result). Is there any true competitor to Textbroker in terms of job volume? I've heard Constant Content is also good, a bit less on the volume but much higher paying.
