    Recent project for a medium competition longtail keyword with a good conversion rate for a niche with $200+ profit per sale:

    [​IMG]

    Almost 2-3 times the traffic when the keyword went up from 2nd to first position (and associated rise in sales).

    You can also see position two on here is getting about twice as much traffic as the page was getting in positions 3 and below

    Yes, definitely good to look at other studies too which tend to have figures around what you list. This is of course this is one case study that can vary from others. Definitely depends on the term and competition.

    Yeah in the end it all comes to CTR. if a kw has big conversion, it means you can really really outsource meta description (and title) so you get even more. For example if you sell silver trimer V2, you could add at the end of sentence that Cristianho Ronaldo uses this model.

    However not all niches have longtails, as not all niches have models or any alternative with longtails. In certain niches if you try to do that you will end up targetting LSI which, in fact, is considered synonym and makes no sense.

    Also, the guy who is now in second / was in first has an exact match domain (EMD) and was ranking his homepage, whereas the domain ranked in this project is an inner page on a branded domain.

    EMD seems to still have helped him rank his site, but definitely beatable. It's not 2013 anymore.

    Yeah branded domains help. They would have to brand their emd, which is their TLD name, and its probably not possible, due to popularity. thats why partial match brand names are cool

    Impressive, no wonder everyone is after that specific spot.
