6 Long Tail Keyword Finder Tool: Learn How To Find Long tail Keywords (2020)

I have written a lot about keyword research and its benefits. One of the major mistakes I have seen many people make is that they will target direct keywords instead of long-tail keywords (LTK) .

If you are not familiar with long-tail keywords, here is a quick example of the difference between short-tail and long-tail:

  • Long-tail Keywords (Ex. of a short-tail keyword) – Monthly searches 50
  • Long-tail Keywords vs. short tail Keywords (Ex. of LTK) – Monthly searches 12
  • Long-tail keywords conversion rate (Ex of LTK) – Monthly searches 13

You may notice that the last two keywords have fewer searches, but the competition for these two keywords is far less than it is for the short-tail keyword.

Also, long-tail keywords drive more targeted traffic than short-tail keywords do, so your conversion (sales, email sign-ups) improves a lot.

In this post, I am sharing some of the best long-tail keywords’ finder tools. Note that some of them are free, and a few of them are paid. I will explain the features of each, and you can choose any one that suits your needs.

Best Ways To Identify Long-Tail Keywords:

1. SEMrush:

SEMRush is most popular way to find tons of long-tail keywords within a few minutes of work. What differentiate this tool from others is, ability to see:

There are a few ways to identify long tail keywords using SEMRush, and lets learn that.

All you need to do is start typing your first keyword, and select the options from the auto-suggestion.

You will need to use another keyword tool to see additional details such as the number of searches, CPC, competition and other important information.  (On my micro-niche site, I usually skip the competition check because it is easier to get a higher ranking with a niche site.)

You can repeat the same process with Amazon. Amazon search is powered by its own engine, and usually, you will find keywords which have buying intent.

  1. I have personally used Semrush…..And will advice to subscribe to full version instead of free trial inorder to enjoy the real benefits of the same.

  2. Use HitTail to Find Long-Tail Suggestions:

    One of my favorite strategies for finding high-value keywords is to target highly-specific long-tail keywords: phrases that will do a great job of matching user intent. In addition to being far more likely to result in conversions, these will also generally be easier to rank for and cheaper to bid on.

    A tool like HitTail can help by suggesting long-tail keywords via a visual long-tail chart. Using its proprietary algorithm, the tool looks at your existing traffic to determine which long-tail phrases you should be targeting to grow your traffic.

  3. Love the list Harsh, Semrush is my favorite tool by far, it has everything i need and their support is always on point.

    I made keyword research using SEMRUSh, and then I am using this result using long tail pro keyword. But Why it is having different result. SEMRUSH told me this keyword is easy to rank, but Why long tail pro tell me that this keyword is difficult to rank.

    I want to use long tail pro because it is small budget.

    Other long tail keyword research tools:

  18. Hi, I checked all websites what you mentioned in your article. But there is no long tail pro alternative keyword tool. All are paid service. The long tail pro is very unique. I am looking for such as keyword tool what will guide me search volume, cpc, keyword difficulty and inbound and outbond links and other seo score for free.

    Google ad-word tool do not provide ranking difficulties. And the other hand, Google search engine shows keyword suggestion automatically but we did not discover: search volume, ranking factors and difficulty. I am not pretty in English. Hope you will publish my comment.
