Does long-tail query optimization affect short keywords too?

by fabal79 5 replies
Hello everybody.

I have a question.

Let's say I am doing on-page SEO activities for this keyword: "cheap family lawyers in Portland".
Maybe I have done a good job and the intended page now ranks better for that keyword.

QUESTION: Is the same page going to rank better also for "family lawyers"?

It is not the my keyword, however it is part of it.

    Yes. It will get a bit of a bump too. How much is a bit depends on how competitive the short keyword is.

    For some, it will only mean that you pop of at #435 when Google shows 435 results. For other it will mean you end up #27.

    Yes, it helps in optimizing your website for short keywords also - not immediately but definitely - depending upon the keywords competition and number of quality links you have.

    Good luck.
