      I don't know how stambleupon can rank a website? Thats a social bookmarking or shareing site just. And Email marketing doesn't affect on SEO, That may bring some instant traffics for sometime only.

    Short tails require more efforts, smartness and time to rank because these keywords have high competition rather than long tail. I just tell you what I learned from my experience, don't create too much same anchor text links while performing link building on short tail keywords. Perform it naturally.

    For example, you have to target the keyword "buy leather jackets". So, create your anchor text strategy with the buy leather jackets, buy leather jackets online, buy best leather jackets, leather jackets to buy, click here to buy leather jackets, etc. You will surely get good results.

    Gaining ranks for short tail keywords is dependent on the quality of the content, speed of the page, domain authority etc. Usage of long tail keywords in the title and the short tail keywords in the permalink is a sure shot way to achieve ranks.
    • To rank short tail keyword target a long tail keyword in which short tail keyword is present
    • Use long tail keyword in title and short tail keyword in perma link
    • Start doing SEO for page using keywords

    Hello

    Anyone cant tell you exactly how long it takes....nor poeple from google.
    But I can confirm you that ranking short tail keywords takes more time and effort like ranking long tail keywords.
    try to aim to long tail low/medium competitive keywords, you will rank faster and you will have bigger probability to get ranked.

    Thats my opinion, Im doing SEO for a longer time so I know what Im talking about.

    Long tail are more preferred in comparison to short tail and it is the update of Google algorithm. Basically, people use to work for short tail keywords to get it rank quickly and to get the rank in Google search engine quickly. But, as per Google, you must help the people to make their search easy by providing them a phrase which could understand what they want to search and provide them the result within a jiffy without taking much time.

    To rank short tail keywords is tough and also depends on keywords competition.
    It is not fix timing in terms of any ranking in SEO, you can apply your best SEO and PPC activities to rank and boost the keywords on SERPs.
    There is no any different strategy for long tail and short tail keywords.

    Typical broad keywords or short-tail keywords are generic keywords (for example, shoes) and have the advantage of driving a lot of traffic. It would be of immense benefit for a business to rank for these high volume generic terms since they would drive a lot of traffic to the website.

    There is no set amount of time for ranking any type of keywords and it is entirely dependent on the set of circumstances surrounding your domain and its content.

    Short-tail keywords are difficult to rank. If you want to rank them faster then you can try targeting the related long tail keywords. Try to using the Keyword-phrase instead using Single word. Keyword-phrase will be long-tail and competition will be less. Also, Long-tail keywords easily convey the intent.
    Example:
    Keyword: Mobile
    Combinations of the keywords: Buy Mobile Online, Mobile Online sale, Purchase Mobile online, Buy Online Mobile USA, etc.

    How long it will take depends on a number of factors, including: domain age, the competitiveness of the short tail keywords, etc. The procedure for achieve rankings for both short tail and long tail keywords is the same.

    Its basically the same procedure to rank short tail or long tail keywords. However, short tail keywords require more efforts, and take longer time to rank because these keywords have high competition.

    To achieve ranks for your short tail keywords, simply optimize your title tag for a short AND long tail version of your keyword. When you do that, you'll rank for the long tail quickly (because it's less competitive). And over time, you'll also rank for the short tail keyword.

    It is not easy to rank short tail keywords at all, High Authority websites are already ranking on short tail keywords and we can't outrank theme.

    Best approach is to target long tail keywords because they have low competitions.

    UnderKeywords- Long tail vs Short tail the broad umbrella of Search Engine Marketing (SEM), which includes both paid search as well as organic search engine optimization, there’s a common strategy that involves focusing on what’s known as “Long Tail” Keywords. It can be challenging to achieve high organic rankings for “Short Tail” or “Head” terms. and that’s true for achieving a high position with paid search ads as well.
