    My site is dancing between number two and number four on page one of G for a keyword of 14,900 global monthly searches and I am only getting 30 uniques a day for that keyword.

    What is going wrong here?

    Thanks in advance for your time,

    James :)

    Well the traffic is average of over 12 months. Checking the trends would give you a clear idea.
    Secondly it be might be due to the dancing just wait for it to stablise.

    It is normal, when keyword tool says it is 14.900 search per month, count the half.
    This tool is not for seo but for people who wants to know how much people they will get with adwords, so to attract them, big G lies about visitors...
    In my experience, it is approximatively the half.

    When you say you are in second position, do you have some adwords above you ?

    Agreed and thanks, but I am not using G's kw tool, I am using niche cracker which pulls in from many sources apparently.

    Thanks though,

    James :)

    What is local search number? And 30/day is a good number. Pray for that.

    In your original Post you mentioned it as Global Searches. There is alot of Difference between the Global and Exact Search count.
    Traffic is totally based on the Exact search count; So, Can you recheck and post it here. So others can help you :)

    SERPS are not the same in each country, you should've looked for the local search amount for the country with the highest volume.
    Also, 14900 is not the final number of searches, it could display very high numbers because of the average but it could be in fact drying out like it happened with me, it was first at 2000 a month then slowly going down, I thought it would pick up and now it's at 70 a month although over 1000 is displayed.

    Global search has nothing to do with exact search count. maybe you mean "broad" search term. I am sure OP checked exact search. The issue is global searches are somewhat misleading. So we should go for local searches.

    Sorry, maybe my mistake. I meant 14,900 exact global monthly searches.

    OK, so if there is no way to accurately predict how many visitors your site will have, then what is the solution?

    James :)

    OP, start with telling us the exact local search count.

    Then, as I have told u above, pray that you are getting that traffic. Anyway let's look at the two ways of increasing it:

    1- being #1
    2- targeting related keywords

    Actually, targeting related keywords can make you #1 if you make a good strategy/plan. Visit semrush (or you may use google keyword tool too) and grab the related keywords. try to use them in your articles. That will help a lot.

    my experience : i was having a simple blogger [ it was dancing between 1-8 ]
    i never do seo or back links but , i used linkcollider to get some fb shares and tweets
    [ got about 500+ shares & 600+ tweets ]:D
    after some time my blog was on place 4 , it never changed [ still it is on 4 ] , it gets around 200 visits .
    so , i moved to some thing new because i am not 18 and can not have adsence account.

    You again...Nothing to say much. How old are you? 10? 11? Why don't you keep your silence for a few days in this forum? You are writing just to increase your post count lol.

    James2, do not buy backlinks for that site if you have an aim for it for the next years.

    BTW, I suggest you to improvise your title tag.
    The number on GKT is for search query.
    Not everyone will click your link though... so make sure it's catchy enough so people will want to click it.
