I find good keywords that bring in a considerable amount of traffic
and I build niche sites that target those keywords.
Yesterday my blog got ranked 2nd for a 3 word keyword that
gets approximately 40,000 searches monthly.
As usual, I used google's keyword tool to check it out.
Global monthly search volume: A bit over 40,000
Local Search volume september: A bit over 90,000
Checked the competition and it was slim.
I jumped on it like a hungry dog. Uploaded some content
and did some serious backlinking.
The keyword got on the first page in no time, and it's
currently ranked number 2.
I estimated that I would get at LEAST 200 uniques
every day from the 2nd place.
But, to my amazement, I got nothing!
I started to get paranoid, so I checked the keyword
on other places such as market samurai.
According to market samurai, the keyword gets approx
1,300 searches daily . And it also showed me that you
can expect over 500 uniques daily if you get 1st on google.
The 2nd I presume (which is me), will get about the same.
So yeah, according to these tools, the keyword does get
a good amount of traffic.
BUT... it clearly does not, because I'm there and I'm not getting
So my questions are...
Has anyone ever experienced something similar?
Maybe these tools are not that accurate?
I always use these tools and "usually" their data is pretty
So how come that the data for this keyword is way
Maybe there's a mistake?
Or maybe I'm just being impatient, and maybe I'll get a lot
of traffic in the upcoming days?
Actually I'm impatient because usually I start to get traffic
immediately after I land on the first page of google for the
keyword that I target.
It's been 24 hours now and I still haven't seen any traffic...
Anyway, if you have any idea of what could've happened
here, or if you had a similar experience, pls share.
NOTE: You should know that the keyword is not seasonal.
