Can a "keyword" be an entire question?
And if so, does that make it a "long tailed keyword?
For example the question is "How Do I Self Publish A Book On Amazon?"

For sure it can.

If that is the KW that you want to rank for you will be able to use it and pieces of it will rank as well.

Yes it most certainly can. Are you checking Jaaxy?
Your example is a long tailed keyword. A short tail keyword could be "publish a book"

Make sure you use Jaaxy to you see your opportunities for keyword phrases..

The recommended number legend to use for Jaaxy is
Avg greater than 30 (50 is even better
QSR (get qsr) Less tha 100. Less than 50 is even better.
SEO greater than 94..

I am using Jaaxy but all the questions I run across are under 10 searches. But I found several questions including the one above in the "people ask" section of google and according to Parthas blogs that is ok.
Thank you!

Thanks for sharing this guideline George. May I ask? According to you what is the most important legend to aim for?

For example if you had a long tail keyword like this:
AVG = 213
Traffic = 37
QSR = 18
SEO = 92

Would you consider it a good keyword, or would you search for one with a greater SEO (94+).

Thanks for your help,

John 😊

There us flexibility in the SEO score because 92 is not bad.
It's just the higher the SEO score the better, especially for a new site.
But it is a natter of what is available for good keywords without too much competition. .

If you aren't already doing it you can find longtail keywords in Google with its auto suggest as you enter your keyword. That gives you ideas. Then you can check Jaaxy.

Yes you can, but make sure to do you keyword research as most questions have very high competition.

For Example on my Article about Apple Music, I was gonna use “What is Apple Music?” but it had to much competition, so when I did my research I found “What is the Apple Music Service?” and used that instead.

What is Apple Music? = (QSR: 200, SEO: 80)
Whats Apple Music? = (QSR: 14, SEO: 87)
What is the Apple Music Service? = (QSR: 0, SEO: 93)

Hope this helps, Good luck. :)

Yes, the Keyword can be an entire question.
It is actually the best approach.

Your question is a perfect example of the long-tailed keyword. In other words, low-hanging fruit keyword.

Also, go to Google, type that question and also see the section:

"People Also Ask" (see attached image)

There you find a lot of resources for other keywords.
