I finally get over the SEO ranking hurdle and I expect thousands of clicks and instead, I end up getting about 30 a day. TOTALLY FLABBERGASTED.
I've got 13 keywords/domains ranking in the top ten of google and the minimum keyword I've got ranking is due to get 1,300 searches a day. The top is meant to get 20,000 searches a day. (Market Samurai data)
Now I understand that top position gets between 20 - 30% of the estimated value etc... and that would be great. But I'm getting about... ehh... let's see now:
0.3% of the estimated searches.
I'm also ranking on yahoo between numbers 1 and 5 for these keywords so I'd expect more than the 20% estimate...
I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong!
At first I thought, the description tags must have been rubbish cos I hadn't really made them 'click through' friendly... then I changed that and waited. 2 weeks later, google updates them... but still... getting about 30 clicks a day - in total! as opposed to 40,000.
I'm using market samurai... broad for one keyword is: 1366, phrase is: 266
I'm ranked number 1 for that phrase in the US and yesterday I got 0 visitors
Another keyword, broad: 1989, phrase: 891
I'm ranked number 2 for that phrase in the US and yesterday I got 13 unique visitors... that's 1.4% of what's mentioned
Any ideas guys?
