Long tail pro was launched by Spencer Haws. It is basically a keyword research tool that can find long tail keywords for you. Long tail keywords are keywords that are greater than 3 words and you can rank very easily because of less competition. Considering this fact long tail pro was designed and it is doing that task very effectively.
Long tail keywords are not only easy to rank but also have very high conversion rate. Because these keywords are more specific to solving a problem like “how to lose belly fats” are more specific than “lose fats”.
There are many competitors of long tail pro but most of the bloggers and internet marketers are using this tool and it has a pretty decent market share.

Pros vs. Cons:
- Very easy to find long tail keywords that are easy to rank in search engines. Though Short keywords are receiving large traffic but they are very competitive and when you write content on it then it is very difficult to receive even very less traffic because there are so many competitive pages are there in search engines.

- Cost is high to my liking especially when you are new to blogging. You also have to pay major upfront cost and monthly subscriptions.

What I Like Most About This Tool?
It has different features that are very helpful to us but I like most Average keyword competitiveness (KC). This is a score based on lot of number of factors and are in the range of 1 to 100. It tells us how much it is difficult to beat the other site on particular keyword.
Less the number the better it is to beat other site. If it is less than 30 than you have a very good chance to rank on keyword because competing sites are not very authoritative. But above than 60 is very tough to rank and it is better to find other keyword for your site.
Data from Moz:
Lot of data shown by LTP are actually coming from Moz. When you install software then you have to create Moz account. Following are the numbers that are taken from Moz.
- Page Authority
- Domain Authority
It is also great to see data from Moz because Moz membership is also very expensive. It really helps us to see the keywords results and dig further into specific site to see its Page Authority, Domain Authority and mozRank.
Is LTP the Best Long Tail Keyword Research Tool? My Final Words:
In my opinion it is one of the best keyword research tool available to find long tail profitable keywords. Some of its features like average keyword competitiveness and competitor analysis are really incomparable with the competitors.
You can easily see how difficult it is to get top rank in search engine. Because if we want to beat high authority sites then it is very difficult for us to compete so we focus much attention on those keywords that are easy to rank. All this guidelines are provided by long tail pro.
