    When I do keyword research I usually pick keywords from 10k exact upward. This time I decided to go for keyword in the hundred and few thousand and here are the reports so far.

    Keyword One - Ranking No 1 (700 exact)
    Keyword Two - Ranking No 3 (2900 exact)
    Keyword three - Ranking No 3 (1600 exact)
    Keyword Four - Ranking No 4 (1600 exact)

    You'd expect with that figure my site should be having 100 UV a day, am telling you my site only has 19 UV so far, WTF. What going on here?

    Check out Google Insights, the statistics there show up to date trendings im sure the general Google numbers are from last year or so maybe someone can correct.

    To have 100 UVs per day with that KW's you had to get half of the total google searches into visitors. At 1st place you will only get around 40% and most of your rankings are below this. The keyword tool isn't 100% accurate but you are making the wrong math also imo.

    #3 - #4 can give probably around 10% of total clicks. So 20 uv/day is correct.

    even with keyword ranking no 1 for 700 exact, should of stick to my 10k exact upward.
