Long tail keywords are used more by users searching for something specific. I think it's better than short tail keywords.
But short tail keywords drives a lot of traffic.

From SEO point of view Long Tail Keyword are easy to target as they have less competition. Whereas long tail keywords have huge competition, so it's not easy to rank in the Google.

Generally, people use both Long Tail and Short Tail Keyword to meet their search queries.

Long tail keywords are most effective as compare to shore keyword phrases. Because most of people search via long phrases on search engine to find out concise result. So, I always preferred long tail keywords for my website.

Long tail keywords are always suitable for SEO, short tail keyword can be targeted, but results will be very very late. Because competition for short tail is huge.

Default Life is an endless series of tradeoffs

Long tail keywords are easier to rank for as they're less competitive, but they bring fewer visitors.

Short tail keywords take MUCH longer to rank for (and in some cases you'll NEVER rank for them) but if and when you do, the floodgates are open.

An effective strategy is to rank for many long tail keyword phrase.

There is not definite long or short tail keywords, the most important thing is that your keyword directly explains about your campaign.

According to me long tail is very easy to target but you are not going to get much leads and sales.

If you target short tail keyword which takes some time to rank on Google but after certain periods of time you will get huge traffic and sales.
