While tons of local businesses would love to rank for a keyword like “shoes,” or “real estate,” or “accounting,” those goals definitely aren’t always practical or even close to attainable. Long tail keywords typically consist of 3 to 6 descriptive words that will help funnel qualified traffic to your site.
