There a 2 types of keywords

Long-tail Keywords
Long-tail keywords typically have a high conversion rate. An example might be "quick loans over the weekend." Although fewer people search using these specific phrases, those who do are often more intent on taking action.

Short-tail Keywords
Short-tail keywords are concise and often consist of just a word or two, like "borrow money." They usually have a high search volume. However, it's crucial to understand that these keywords often convert at a lower rate. Therefore, it's recommended to balance your strategy with both short-tail and long-tail keywords to maximize potential website visitors.

Do You Need to Match Keywords Exactly?

You don't need to hit the keywords precisely, as we demonstrate below:

"Sweden football" can be "Football in Sweden."
"Loan quick repayment" can become "Loan with quick repayment."
"Grocery stores Stockholm" can be phrased as "Grocery stores in Stockholm."

Google and other search engines grasp the context, so they won't penalize you for adding words that make the sentence read more naturally. Terms like "in" and "with" are known as "transition words," and it's beneficial to incorporate them. Always prioritize writing for your visitors over strictly catering to search engines.
