Nowadays, ranking for certain keywords on search engine is much tougher than previously. Years back, I could easily rank a two-words keyword within weeks but nowadays, it seems like forever.

Search engine optimization had not changed but it had just got harder.

I am a huge fan of organic search engine optimization techniques and recently, I came across a tool which is said to be (and possibly) one of the best keyword research tool out there.

Being an avid user of Long Tail Pro, I was really skeptical on the idea of using this tool but I thought, I would give it a go either way.

The below are my experience and of course, tell me what you think using the comment form below.

Improving search results using HitTail

HitTail does only one job (literally speaking) and that is providing you long tail keywords to further increase your blog traffic.

HitTail will provide long tail keyword suggestions to help you rank better

You can easily practise organic search engine optimization techniques in just 3 steps using HitTail. Yes, only 3 simple steps and you are probably having a good chance to rank better on SERPs.

1. Integrating HitTail code into WordPress blogs

Probably the easiest part of all. Upon registering (get your trial HitTail account here) for an account, a code will automatically be created for you.

The code looks something like this:

<!– HitTail Code –>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
(function(){ var ht = document.createElement(‘script’);ht.async = true;
ht.type=’text/javascript’;ht.src = ‘//123456.hittail.com/mlt.js’;
var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ht, s);})();
</script>

Copy the code and place it before the closing of </body> tag or wp_footer(). For those who are not using Genesis theme, you would probably need to find the related tag to place the code which wouldn’t take you much time.

Have a look what Geensis theme has to offer: Check out Genesis Framework & child themes.

Once that is done, you would need to wait for around 30 minutes or so (remember to clear cache for faster response) before HitTail would be able to detect the code and installation is complete.

2. Allowing HitTail to crawl and providing results

After your tracking code is verified, you will not be getting an immediate response or results you are looking for. It is best to wait for a few days before coming back to check on the results.

Basically, HitTail will record the source of your traffic and it will focus only on search engine traffic. As I had said above, HitTail helps to boost organic search engine optimization and it uses organic search results to provide you with the most relevant data.

HitTail provides several result options which are:

  • Search hits
  • Keywords
  • My HitTail
  • Suggestions

Search hits – This is where it gives you an exact information for the source of your traffic

Keywords – Keywords that visitors were searching which lands them on your site

My HitTail – Give you an outlook of the top 10 keywords of your search traffic and the number of long tail keywords that contributes to your traffic

Suggestions – HitTail takes a the list of long tail keywords (refer above) and provide you suggestions on future blog posts topics.

3. Searching for the best keywords for blogging
