      Meron na actually ako nabasa dati na yong insurance and mortgage and top ranking keywords but they are also hard to put into the top search result kasi very competitive nga ung KW.

        Long tail keywords are those three and four keyword phrases which are very, very specific to whatever you are targeting.. It could also be more than 4 words phrase.. lalo na sa mga high competion keywords na insurance.

        i.e.. free insurance quotation in Manhattan

        the keywords above came fore free insurance quotation or insurance quotation keywords..

        But it is very specific to few searchers. and ofcourse search volume is less compared to other keywords.

      I am ok, and doing good.. Nice to see you comment again on this blog.. Forex is also good to target as keywords but Forex and insurance competition is very high. But we could always target the long tail keywords 🙂
