    i have 5 sites but 1 in particular should be getting at least 100 visits a day according to market samurai and the google adword tool, i have 4 keywords that im using for this site and all of them are in the top 3 at least if not the 1st listing in the SERPs. this site has been up for about a month i have tried web 2.0 traffic i have tried social networking but i just cant seem to get any real traffic i get about 5-10 if im lucky visits to this site... i think in my opinion what is happening is the sponsors listings are stealing all the traffic... what can i do to get more traffic = sales.... need help fast before i go crazy...
    thanks in advance...

    Personally I'm not a big fan of adwords tool or market samuri or any other tool for that matter giving daily traffic figures.

    A lot of the time they're hugely innacurate, they also have a tendancy to lump synonyms and plurals together etc.

    One of the tools that I find gives me the most accurate data (through never 100% perfect) is the Google Traffic Estimator. It's designed for adwords so remember the number of clicks indicated only accounts for around 15% of the total searches. Make sure to use phrase match.

    Otherwise you could actually run an adwords campaign just to check how many searches are actually occuring - this is probably the most accurate way
