    Well first of all I am assuming the 12000 estimate by the goo gle tool is a broad number. Look for a drop down box and change the search to exact. I promise you that number is going to go way down if you haven't already done this.

    And yes, wikipedia being in front of you will hurt your chances of receiving a lot of traffic. Especially if that page has what the people are looking for.

    Yes, something must be messed up. If there are 12000 exact searches according to the google tool and you are number 5, then the tool must be wrong. Regardless of what is in front of you, number 5 is going to get more than 2 a day. Try some other tools. Get Market Samurai off of BHW or buy it. Ot you can go to the wordtracker keyword tool. But Market Samurai is prob your best bet.

    You could try putting up a Google paid ad and see how many impressions it actually gets. Put some junk the title/description so people don't actually click on it, run it for maybe 3-5 days and you'll get a good estimate of its actual traffic.
