    Hello,

    IF I had a site that was #2 for SEO services [city]
    1000 exact match

    How many serious clients would I expect to get per month?

    By "serious" I mean clients that are ready to pay, not clients that will talk on the phone for 5 hours to dig free information.

    Test keywords like this using Adwords. That will get you a good sample data set.

    Unfortunately, a lot of SEO keyword search volume is super inflated by 10,000 SEO companies checking rankings 10,000 times a day. In many cases "SEO + City" will result in VERY few leads if any.

    I was curious about this I am in the top 2 pages for "Seo Service" and not sure how many clients that will be worth once it hits top page.

    Not many. Normal clients don't search for SEO. They find this crap in their junkmail every day and think it's some virus.

    Have to agree with most others here. My own companies website is ranked on page one #2 spot (yeah I know I fail at #1) for terms like [city] + SEO and SEO + [city].

    Granted i'm in a smaller city but according to google keyword tool, both terms together are searched about 500 times exact a month. I get maybe hand-full of visits a month from terms like these and even then - no inbound leads from the website. :eek5:

    I don't do SEO for customers anymore for the main reason that they are too hard to get.

    Unfortunately not too many come via search - old school marketing works best for this. (hence why I don't do SEO for customers any more)

    not many. believe it or not, one of my friend once ranked SEO Service (general keyword, not city) in top 3, and averagely, he could get 3 calls per day, how many deal he could get? You figure. But, that was several years ago, maybe things changed.
