    Has anyone else been seeing ungodly high numbers for some keywords lately, so you SEO for it, get a top 3 ranking and then see practically no traffic?

    I have taken top spots for a few clickbank products with high gravity but see practically 0 traffic yet GKT is telling me they all get over 1,000 exact searches per month.

    Although helpful, I also find that their estimations can be a little 'off', the only thing I could think of was that the data hadn't been updated in a few months or something :)
