Hi,

This is the first time I succeed in promoting a strong keyword for my site Online Conversions
The keyword is online conversions with 3,600 monthly searches, and I got to the 7th position in Google.

As I am newbie in this field, how good is this accomplishment?

      I still don't earn much as I have only 300 daily visits, but the site is only 6 months old, and last month I had only 200 daily visits, so the site is definitely progressing.

      53% of my traffic is coming from SE.

        And is it making you any money? Enough that you're happy?Ranking is not the goal, ranking is a step towards the goal.

          I earn 2$ per day which is not much...

          I want to earn at least 10$ per day.

            Then, it's a great achievement. You have to replicate it 4 times only.

            Or move this page from #7 to #3.

            There's something wrong with your math: if the keyword has 3,600 searches a month and you're getting 300 visitors a day, a huge chunk (almost all of them) of those visitors is coming through some other keywords and referrals. Identified the keywords, identified easy to rank ones, and rank them. Identified the referrals, see if there's any website that sends you visitors whose owner might let you post an article on his/her site.

            Go check in Google webmaster tools and Google analytics (or whatever visitor-tracking program) you use. You do use some kind of tracking program, right?

              I want to replicate it but I am not sure which keywords to choose...
              Online conversions was an obvious choice as this is the name of the site, but what other keywords should I promote?

              I see that I am also ranked in the first page in Google for the following keywords:
              • chmod online
              • online one's complement
              • chmod calculator online

              I am using a tracking program based on my server's logs.

              I get traffic from other SE besides Google, and also from referral sites.
              Also I have already returning visitors that like my conversions, and keep returning to my site

                Google webmaster tools would tell you which keywords they find you by. You take the list of keywords, you run it through Google's keyword planner. Then you pick the ones with enough traffic and check the competition (how strong is #1, how strong is #2, #3.

                Pick the ones with low competition (check onpage and offpage seo).

                why not let WMT dictate your next move? Once the site is up and running.. you have a wealth of data in your little fingers... that's what the damn tools are there for. I believe the sooner you can get away from the less than valid data of keyword planner and into the realm of REAL pertinent data the better off you are.

                ( Im not saying keyword planner doesn't have its place... like the initial keyword process - but after that Ill take real and valid data all day long )

                Get into WMT and then get into "Search Traffic" then "Search Analytics" make sure that there is a check mark next to "Clicks" "Impressions" "CTR" and "Position" you then have a nice set of data to start looking at.

                I personally like to sort by "Impressions" and compare that number to "Position" if you are getting 60 impressions for a term you are ranking back on page 5 for... you might consider working on boosting that page.

                There are many ways to look at those 4 numbers in correlation to each other to determine what terms you should be shooting for.

    Hello...!!!!!!!
    It's really tough to rank if a keyword has high search volume.
    As I can see the keyword online conversions already has high search volume though it's hard to rank. If the things are true then you have done a splendid job.

    You're #12 on the 2nd page for the keyword online conversions (US/east coast).

    Realistically the best you'll do is possibly position #3 in the SERPs considering the first ranked page/domain has Mega Sitelinks & yet another page ranked from the same domain for the same keyword.

      Thanks, I checked and found several keywords that I can promote (in addition to the ones I have mentioned):
      • two's complement calculator
      • harmonic mean calculator
      • complement calculator
      • gcd calculator online
      • mode and range calculator

      I guess that my site have so many good conversions, that I can find the right candidates to promote

    #14 on the second page when looking from Finland. I'm probably seeing the same top sites that Yukon describes.

    Hoping that this wasn't just some sort of fluctuation, and you're really still on the first page. Remember to avoid personalized results.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

      I tried it again in incognito mode, and still I see the same result - 7th place, but I guess it depends on the location you are searching from...

    #14 when I'm searching from India. Since your website is pretty new, you should try to bring it on top 5 positions.

    Also you should choose semantic keywords wisely to get backlinks. It's not a good idea to get all backlinks from just a single keywords.
