Long tail keywords convert better, but short tail keywords have much more traffic

you may get more traffic with a short tail keyword but you more likely to get conversions with long tail as they are more specific to your product/services

Short tail keyword is well known for its competitive environment and that's why long tail keyword is usually used by SEOs for their optimization campaign due to its low competitive keyword.

Yes going for long term keywords is always a good option to grab the attention of search engines. One of the other boons to this is that you can eventually get ranked for respective shorter versions of the keyword.
