I`m wondering what the best way to generate long tail keywords is?

Hi there,
I`m wondering what the best way to generate long tail keywords is? From what I`ve read,  Analytics seems a good way but I can`t see how to use it to generate the keywords. Can anyone suggest a good resource for analytics or perhaps a better option for generating long tail keywords? Thanks!!

  • Ranu Jain: Well, most of the keyword research tools don&#39;t deliver much in the way of long tail terms. They return limited lists of popular keywords, with hardly any long tail keywords.<br /><br />Yes WordStream&#39;s free keyword tool, unlike other keywords suggestion tools, it returns a virtually unlimited number of keywords along with multi-word long tail keywords. You can try that.  ;<br /><br />You can also look for the suggestions that pop up below the search bar. For example, you may type in &quot;Best Boutique&quot; Google search may suggest &quot;Best Boutique for Women.&quot;<br /> ;<br />You can dig into your Analytics. Look into the web traffic section of your analytics program, there is a section that shows traffic sources and search terms. You can get an idea from there.<br /><br />Also, try checking the Wikipedia page. Look at the table of contents  ;and see what topics are subheadings in the article.
  • Justin Y: You can refer to the related search section at the bottom of Google for longtails. There&#39;s also tools like HitTail that will track incoming longtail keywords that help you to focus on longtails that already drive traffic to your site.<br />Overall, I Personally think doing your homework and knowing your niche or industry is the best way to go.
