Hmm...I see a lot of people in I.M. think if they rank on the first page of google for their keywords that's it..."paytime" But is simply isn't that easy. It's a start that's all.
I think of it his way...being top of Google is juts like being able to place a free ad in an enormous newspaper. Yes you wil lget traffic and quite targetted but you need everything else to line up as well. Your product has to be in demand, at a good price , your copy as to sell. your support, you have to be someone they can trust, etc..There are so many other variables.
Time and time again in all forums I see things like "get to the top of google on 100,000 searches a month and thet will mean $10,000+ per month.." BULL. It's not hits....it's customers and they will only buy if everythign else is good.
I guess what I am trying to say is it isn't all about getting as many "eyeballs" to your web site as possible. Your business has to be great as well.
Rant over. Back to work .
