    Local Monthly Searches

    If you owned a web design company and were on the first page for this keyword how many jobs you would get daily?

    Go for the smaller cities with small populations. My town is very small and there is I think 500 local searches a month for [cityname web design].

    If you were first page for 1000 small cities like mine, you'd be getting a lot of sales daily. Even ranking for just 100 will give you tons of clients, enough that you can quit your day job.

    Fuck that, you wouldn't even have to design either. Simply sub-contract all work out, charge x% extra, and kick back ;).

    as only local clients would order from you: 2 240 000 visitors per moth
    about 80% of them are really looking how to do web desing themselves, which leaves: 448 000
    beeing below the breakline of 1st page will give you about 1% visitors: 4 480
    those visitors that are willing to look further down the apge are really picky or looking for something special, so conversion rate would be low, like 10%: 448 per month

    = 15 per day

    I'd sell the site
    use the huge payday to bankroll 2-3 smaller more manageable sites. Stuff thats more manageable like CPA, or Clickbank.
    Cant imagine trying to outsource 1,000 jobs a day.
