Generic keywords will have huge competition as they are known by everyone & hence they will be difficult to rank. With long tail keywords as they are not known by most of the people, they will have less competition & you will find easy to rank them.

Generic keywords are searchable or identifiable words that have meanings that have a relatively wide scope. Generic keywords tend to produce a relatively large number of matches and tend to have a higher cost. Generic keywords can have a much lower conversion rate due to their wide scope of meaning.

Long tail keywords are keywords or key phrases that are more specific (and usually longer) than more common “head” keywords. Long tail keywords get less search traffic, but will usually have a higher conversion value, as they focus on a more specific product.

Generic keywords are searchable or identical words that have definitions that have a relatively wide scope. Generic keywords tend to create a relatively large number of matches and tend to have a higher cost.
A long-tail keyword is a keyword phrase that contains at least three words. Long-tail keywords are used to target niche demographics rather than mass audiences. In other words, they are more specific and often less competitive than generic keyword terms.
