    I dont understand Traffic Travis sometimes.
    How is this keyword easy when top 4 has like 10000+ 'PAGE' backlinks.

    How accurate is Traffic Travis. Do you guys even use it at all?

    Take a look at backlinks to page. Also easy is a relative term. I guess once you get a feel for what it takes to rank each keyword, you just know by looking at the stats.

    just because a page has 1 million backlinks doesn't mean all 1 million are your target keyword or even closely related

    It looks as though those pages aren't targetting that keyword.
    They might have thousands of backlinks, but notice that they don't have the keyword in the title, description or H1 tag.

    That looks much easier than the main keyword for my authority site, and i've managed to get that into the top 10 for an extremely competitive niche with VERY targeted competition.

    Home Page:
    They could be junk links from spam directories or xrumer profiles or blog comments.

    On page seo is a big factor and should always be your starting point.

    I would seo spyglass to analyse those links... I am guessing that they are probab;y junk

    Thanks for the advice guys.

    Actually, I do find Traffic Travis very inaccurate in terms of on-page seo rating.

    The reason why I said this is because I know I done on-page SEO properly on my site, and it still shows "X" across H1/H2 tags etc.

    So I dont really look into what traffic travis says about on-page seo too much.

    I know they are different, but from your experience, are they really THAT BIG of a difference?
    To me, i think they arent really as big (or at least not as big as what I think you are thinking... i dont know, just my 2 cents)
