Keyword Conundrum

Did you know that around 20% of Google searches are unique? Research has shown that the “most popular” searches account for a very small percentage of search engine traffic.

If you learn how to manage these “long tail” and very unique keywords properly, a greater amount of traffic will be driven to your site. Source: NETLZ Consulting SEO Blog. more…
