Ranking for a keyword isn't easy, you have to make sure you put the keyword in the post title, headings and the slug of the post.
What Is Keyword?
A keyword is a particular word or phrase that describes the contents of a Web page, it is also defined as the words that appear most in the post, both in the post title, headings and the slug.
- Keyword (linguistics), word which occurs in a text more often than we would expect to occur by chance alone
- Keyword (computer programming), word or identifier that has a particular meaning to the programming language
- Keyword (cryptography), word used as the key to determining the letter matching of the cypher alphabet to the plain alphabet
- Index term, a term used as a keyword to retrieve documents in an information system such as a catalogue or a search engine.
According To Moz: Keywords are ideas and topics that define what your content is about. In terms of SEO, they're the words and phrases that searchers enter into search engines, also called "search queries." If you boil everything on your page — all the images, video, copy, etc. — down to simple words and phrases, those are your primary keywords.
What are long-tail keywords?
Long tail keywords are those three, four and some times as many as five words keyword phrases, that was specified with the post title, eg. create free blog.
some bloggers even copy all their blog post title and paste it into the search engine.
And they will think they are ranking.
As a blogger, you should think of the way people can search a post on a search engine.
You should choose Long-tail keywords because it has less competition, that simply means bloggers are not fighting for that keyword(I mean competition, not physical fighting)
