Its a good, and a huge topic to cover in a comment but, here is the summary of what this is all about.
Google wanted to understand searchers intent therefore they created humming bird algorithm. It mainly focuses on understanding users search intent. They classified search intent into three segments:
1. Informational: Deals with general information search queries. e.g. When was King George born?
2. Navigational: Mainly deals with the navigational queries. e.g. Where can I book the driving test in Harrow?
3. Transactional: Best dinning places in London?

Just use variables in content, for example recently I put together a content for one of the dentists, here is how I drafted it:

What level of Perfection should I expect?
Are veneers pain free?
How many appointments do I need?
How long does veneer last?

Idea is to build your content by keeping searchers intent in mind.
Please like my comment if you find it useful. Thanks...

To get more traffic go with long tail keywords. Nowadays Google is preferring long tail which users are also searching with these long tail text only.

There are few concepts in that
Long tail keywords are more specific than short tail keywords
Long tail keywords are easy to rank and target than short tail keywords
It has less search volume but it is effective and less competitive.

long tail keywords have fewer competitions, so it is easy to rank them quickly. Long tail keywords can be used to index a website quickly. But these type of keywords has less number of searches as compared to the small keywords.
