# The Wagging Tail Article Template
You’ve probably heard about long tail keywords, but just in case you haven’t or don’t know why they are so effective I’ll start with a brief explanation.
If you were targeting a keyword like “cat”, first of all, it would be very difficult to rank well for such a common keyword.
Second, even if people found your article, there could be hundreds of reasons why they were searching for “cat”, like “cat music”, “cat training”, “cat litter box”, and many others.
Chances are that most people would probably leave your article again as soon as they found out that you didn’t write about the topic they were searching for.
If, on the other hand, you wrote an article with the key phrase “overweight Siamese cat diet”, you would not be in such a crowded marked, and people searching for that topic, arriving on your article, would most likely read it and click on your link in the resource box.
So if you really go to the end of that wagging tail, you will not target as many people as with the common keyword, but those who were searching for your key phrase would be very interested in reading what you had to share.
Let’s get started, then. This is how to write an article using the Wagging Tail Article Template:
1: Pick your topic, and make sure you go all the way out to the tip of the tail. Be very specific.
2: Come up with an intriguing headline, and include your long tail key phrase in it to make sure that people that find your article know that this is what they were searching for.
3: Explain your topic in the introduction.
4: Eleborate on your topic in the body of the article.
5: Summon up your article in the conclusion, and lead into your resource box, if you’re writing for article syndication, traffic or back links.
