    Analytics is showing that I am getting traffic from a keyword that is getting 18,000 exacts a month and we are getting about 3 hits a day from it. It is on the fifth page, do you really think people are going all the way to the sixth page of search results?

    Sorry, fifth page not sixth. As if it matters :)

    If they're bored, or if they didn't find what they were looking for in the first 4.

    im page 2 for a 40k/exact monthly term and i hardly get any traffic. It really depends on the search term though.

    For example someone searching:

    free xbox codes

    will most likely continue past the first,second,third+ to find a working code

    as opposed to someone looking for:

    nurse salary

    which the answer will be found in the first page (if not the first spot).

    Hope that helps!

    Could be higher up in a different country.
    Honestly, you'd probably only get a few hits a day from it if you were #10 for that keyword.

    Also, could be from a picture if you've got one.

    I know I'm ranking for quite a few 40k exact a month as a picture and get a few hits from that

    I find that the stats for what page you're on most of the time are sh*t... To be honest.

    If I based everything I did on what page I'm on, I should be broke and not interested in building another website. Fact is, I make a bit of cash every month, and if I were to look I doubt any of my websites would be on the first page of any highly trafficked keyword.

    So, my advice is stop worrying about what rank you are, and only look at if you're making money. If you have a site that is making money, add more content, and create a more useful site...

    Just my thoughts....

    Hey Mudbutt. That makes a lot of sense. I think my search term is a very broad search term which makes sense why they would go all the way to the fifth page. Also, the first few pages of results are all crap :)
