    So my blog is on the first page of google for the keyword cool hoodies but im getting less than 20 hits a day... It is sort of near the bottom of the page but i figured all this work to get to the first page I would have much better traffic?

    I keep telling people to link their blogs to a Twitter account if they haven't already. I get steady traffic from Twitter and I only have ~100 friends.

    Well thats about the rite amount of traffic.. The keyword cool hoodies only got 5400 total searches in june. So your really getting the expected amount of traffic.

    "sort of near the bottom of the page" will kill you most every time.

    If you are not in the the 5, the top 3 really, you are not getting the traffic

    I'm just guessing but I think fixing the spelling mistake in your page title might help.

    + build more links

    + some more

    Bah EDIT is not working for me or it is and this will show up like 5 times :D

    Try changing the title/description to something that will make people want to click & see your site. ie Discover how to get cool hoodies for a fraction of the normal prices. Huge gallery to choose from..blah blah

    You want to incite curiosity in people so they will check out your site.

    keyword research is king, 20 or so hits a day sounds about right to me
