    Hi there everyone I have been on BHW for few months now and just want to thank you all for the help you have given me.
    I set up my website using G/DADDY Website tonight in January I used all your techniques to get it ranked number 5 on Google and number 1 on Bing. however it has been a few weeks now and I still haven`t made one sale.
    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks again...

    Do you have a good sales page (squeeze page) getting the traffic is one thing, but its all about closing the sale.

    What niche is it? If it's a niche where people don't buy things online, then you might want to change your plan.

    + #1 on Bing is really not a big thing, I have several sites ranked there and traffic is poor..

    Try to focus on your landing page and on the actual product, traffic is just one part of the whole puzzle

    Thanks for reply guys
    I dont get many searches for keyword per month well under 1000.
    I will look a my squeeze page and see if I can change it.

    I was thinking of content locking.Is there a free one I could use?


    thanks

    With under 1000 local monthly searches you get under 30 visitors per day and this even if you rank others longtail.

    Try to get rid of website (sell it) and invest that money in another niche more easy to rank and monetize. You need more traffic to see results.

    I depends on a keyword, to get a sale there must be "Buy" term inside of the keyword

    Not necessarily true, I own a website that was originally created to pursue a 1,600 exact search a month term, it does however have long tail keywords that receive 40,000 - 21,000 and 9,900 a month in exact searches; which I rank well for.

    A successful niche doesn't necessarily need massive search numbers; it depends on what kind of keyword it is (whether it is info seeking/buying, etc); your sales page; etc.

    From my experience, when you get to top 3, the sales will go high. Top 3 means more vistors but also more trust from users.

    Rank doesn't matter. Traffic does? How much traffic do you get? If you are getting visitors and no conversions, then it's time to have someone to take a look at your copy.. (if this is something you're not good at yourself). I suck at copywriting - but I ace in paying other people to do that :)

    Thanks guys for your feedback.
    How can I go about getting my website sorted, I guess you are talking about someone looking at my website, but what am I looking to achieve and how do I go about this?

    many thanks
