    I even gave up looking at analytics a while back while struggling to get some real traffic consistently on my site. Well, since late april/early may, I have had a really good system in place to do just that. Quality traffic. No junk. Tons of SEO tweaking over the last year as well.

    I checked analytics today, and now Google has increased my search engine traffic May 1-May 31 from 31 a day to 145 a day. With a few dips, it's been a really steady traffic increase and it looks as if it's still going strong with this trend.

    I even rank #1 on, what i think is a pretty cool keyword with 38,000 searches (according to Yahoo. Only 15,800 according to google).

    I imagine I should just keep my traffic trend going. Google may be beating me soon in terms of sending organic se traffic to my site vs. my daily hustling, which has little spikes and dips all over the map. Google's increase looks nice and smooth.

    Keeping my fingers crossed. Hopefully my pr will increase soon as well. It's holding steady at 2.

    What would some experts do at this point to help capitalize on this trend?

    Add as many inbound links as possible from related sites, which will be interpreted as people linking to your nice content. Links from clean sites of the same category, obviously. Don't accept crappy links from spam dumps, and don't link to shady places or unrelated stuff directly (in case use a js-based redirect or a redirection site as the one used here against referrer spoofing). AVOID ANY KIND OF DUPLICATE CONTENT, and don't alter the structure at all. No 301 or 302 redirects. Overall don't touch metatags (keywords, description) trying to tweak more. It is very likely that attempts to alter now may be interpreted as overoptimization, rising what you here around call "red flags".

    It's always nice to get a traffic increase, but going to 145 per day is not that much of a jump. I know first hand that building ******** backlinks at a high and steady rate, while using the relevant anchor text for your keyword, will work wonders for your search engine traffic.
