Search engine optimization for small and very small businesses.

Searchers Used Longer Queries in 2009

“The long tail is getting longer; 1- and 2-word queries are on the decline, while 4- and 5-word queries are rising.

So reported Small Business Search Marketing recently. More about how this might affect your keyword selections here.
