Long tail keywords are now a days very popular among companies running PPC worldwide. Earlier PPC campaigns were designed by checking the total popularity of any keyword. Various search count tools available was very helpful in this. Still this is a very popular way to find the keywords for any campaign. But in recent times there has been a steep increase in long tail keywords as they are getting more and more clicks from visitors.

Recent stats have shown an increase in the clicks of long tail keywords as compared to short keywords. So if you have a company selling toys, then running a PPC campaign for “I want to buy kids toys” is more effective than for simple “Kids toys”. Visitors now a day have become very smart and want to search only specific things. The increase in the volume of long tail keywords is a proof for this.
