    Im getting views to my site from google from my 3 keywords im targeting more specially 2, i did maybe 15 backlinks, and havent started any seo yet, i open adsense today seeing i got 4 clicks (within like 4 hours) im like this cant be normal, so i go on my site, and look at WordPress Stats, and it says im geting views (10-25) from google, with the 2 keywords im tageting, so i open RANKTRACKER and type my domain + keywords, and it shows for every keyword Not in top 100 , which i expected, but can someone explain how im still getting visitors from these keywords? is rank tracker wrong?

    You could be ranked for some long tailed keywords that you weren't targeting.

    Like if you were targeting "This Keyword" you could be ranked for "This is my best keyword" and "This Keyword Is Awesome".

    That could be the reasoning :)

    You could be getting visitors from your actual backlinks. Let's assume you posted a article and some of those viewers of the article click on your URL in the resource box. Your stat tracker won't post them coming from the Google SERPs so that might be the reasoning

    so i decide to install statpress on my wordpress site, to see more specifically where my views were coming from, it turns out my views were coming for google images! for my exact keyword i was trying to match for, my picture that was on my site was at the top of the 1st page on google images, so when people clicked on the picture it led to my site, i hope the image stays their for ever :p
