Rich Snippets for Long-Tail Keyword Searches

Now, rich snippets are popping up all over the place, especially when you do long-tail keyword searches. I discovered this yesterday, while doing keyword research for one of my clients.

Long-tail Keyword Phrases in Web Content

So, what does this mean for SEO? Unscrupulous webmasters may think it’s time to go back to keyword spamming. But a more effective strategy will be to continue writing relevant description meta tags, AND include long-tail keyword phrases in your copy in a way that will make sense and be relevant to your audience.
