Long tail is a big buzzword in marketing these days. The term “Long Tail” was initially coined in 2004 by Chris Anderson in an article in Wired magazine. The term was initially used to describe the niche business strategy that is used by companies like Amazon.
Marketers are now using the term to describe the phenomenon that “long tail keywords” could get more traffic combined than the broader, more general keywords. For example, let’s say the keyword “dog training” gets approximately 2,420 searches per day.
