i tried doing a forum search on the topic but nothing came up. so sorry if this sounds redundant but is the search volume estimate in google keywords tool accurate? I ask because I started a niche blog for a keyword that google said had aprox. 1600 monthly searches. Now in a month I got the site to possition 1 in the google serps. In total probably had about 20 links, mostly from different article directories and hubpages/squidoo. Sadly google deindexed my blog but not before it sat at number one for about 2 weeks. Now thing is that in those two weeks at number one i got only one visitor from google and that was with a long tail keyword. By my estimates even if lets say 1000 people google the keyword that would be 250 a week, lets say half click on the first result and that would be 125 visitors. Yet i got 0 for the keyword. I am a bit discouraged right about now. Anyone has some experience with this? tl;dr: I have reason to believe google keyword tool search volume aprox. is not very accurate. Anyone know different from experience?
