    Yo Guys! I made a website 1 months ago. and I have 3 target keywords for my site.

    my first keyword has 10.000 monthly search volume in [exact match]. (my site is in 18th ranking now)
    my second keyword has 15.000 monthly search volume in [exact match]. (my site is in 34th ranking now)
    my third keyword has 2000 monthly search volume in [exact match]. (my site is in 18th ranking now)

    My target is First rank. But My rankings are not bad now. But I have no visitors.... Why???? Any Idea?... Is Google Adwords Keyword Tool a liar?

    You won't really get any visitors until you get into the top 5, and even then you need to be in the top 3 to get anything decent.

    If you're not on first page, it's like your site doesn't exist. Even once you get on first page for the searches you won't see much traffic until you're in the top 3.

    It's like the olympics, you're probably pretty special for getting in the olympics but nobody cares unless you're top 3.

    Yeah you seem to be getting alright traffic being further from page 1. Once you hit page one, things will rise, trust me. :)

    Yea you obviously having a good plan and it's working. Just keep doing what your doing.

    Even when you get to page 1 you should gradually start seeing some benefit.

    10,000 monthly searches is 333 searches per day. How many do you think are going to go to page 2 and on? Not many. You have to aim for #1.

    umm yeah, Good rankings = top 10 or 5. Anything lower than that is poor ranking.

    Statistically, 6% of people will ever click to the second page. There are 10 links on that page. If you aren't on page 1, your chance of getting a click from any search are less than 1 percent.

    If I remember correctly, around 55% of clicks go to the first result and 30ish to the second.

    People often refer to AOL's leaked data from 2006 that shows the percentages of click through rate on Google's organic search.

    Apparently 42% of people click on the first result of the organic search which is from a study of 20 million searches over a period of 3 months.

    Google has changed a lot since then and IMO puts more emphasis on the paid search.

    Nobody knows what the average percentage is now and I'm pretty sure it is not as high as 42%

    You should keep in mind that the percentages are averages. When people search for something specific they glance at the title, I have tested descriptions and have not seen any change in ctr.

    Imagine the following titles on google:

    1st position: Red car | Fast Red Car | Red | Car | Car Red
    2nd position: Fast Red Car | 50% Discount Here | Speedy.com

    Which one would you click on?

    A title is extremely important for getting clicks and my general rule of thumb is: keywords | call to action | brand

    Also if you are in a competitive niche a lot of people could be searching for there own rankings and that is why googles keyword tools should not be used to determine how many searches are being made.

    This is a perfect example of how important it is to rank on the top of page one. The good news is that you are making good progress. Some more proper SEO work and patience will do the trick.

    You can get visitors in other ways while you are waiting to be on page 1 for your preferred keywords. You can use twitter, facebook, digg, redditt, stumbleupon, youtube, pinterest (if you can use it in your niche), emails, buy targeted traffic, post on boards where you can have a signature, answer questions in yahoo, craigslist, press releases.

    Yes, not being in top5 means that there is not much of a traffic flow.
    The numbers are more or less like the following -

    1st Postition - 50 - 35%
    2nd Position - 40 -25%
    3rd Position - 30 - 15%
    4th Position - 20 -10%
    5th Position - 15-5%

    Depending on the niche. Some niches people to tend to do a lot of research before buying anything, so they end up going through the whole first page, that is when the product is something rather more expensive, there is a demand and decent competition.
