How to use long-tail keywords in my blog posts?

4 replies
I'm using wordpress for my blog and yoast plugin for seo. recently i read a tutorial about "long-tail keyword" usage. but i get confused when i want to use them in my blog posts. take the following long-tail keywords:
  • best gaming mouse and keyboard for ps4
  • make money online high school students

Imaging i want to use one of them as my primary keyword(focus keyword) in my blog post. how should i use it in post title and other parts of my article?

-should i use it in the exact same order in my title or post?
-how to use it in yoast keyphrase input? should i use exact match of the focus keyphrase in the input?

as you know Google is capable of recognizing the separate words from longer search terms, even if the words are not in the exact same order as the query.

I searched many days but unfortunately i couldn't find anything about how to use keyword or long-tail keywords inside the blog posts .

    You are making it harder than it is - write blog posts that make SENSE - use the long tail phrase in a way that makes the post READABLE.

    If you are trying to rank for SEO ... Contents is Important ..you have to look at the search intent of the people when they are looking for a solution or answers to their problem and the relevance of your contents in relation to their problem and google is looking at that concept . The trick here is numbers and relevance to rank ......Research on your Top competitors what keywords they are targeting and how much contents(words) they are putting ...what is there Domain Authority or Page Authority assuming you have done your research ..then you'll Just have to do better than them

    Hey buddy,

    Don't overthink about "long-tail keywords".

    Write in your own style. Keywords should blend in, otherwise, it'll reduce your readability.

    Go to backlinko.com, read his blogs he uses long-tail keywords in a manner it won't offend the readers.
