    Need more info. What's the monthly search volume?

    For most search terms #20 might as well be #200. Nobody goes to page 2. Yahoo is pretty dead, you might get a few, but no significant traffic if it isn't a huge term.

    Look at it this way, when you search for something how often do you go to page 2 looking for results? Second question, how often do you use yahoo? Answer is probably never, thus why you have no traffic.

    when i type my keyword on yahoo it shows that i am one the no.1 spot
    i am on page 2 on google every time i checked.

    ok.. Let us analyse the situiation.

    In google your webpage rank is 20. You have said 14k EM searches, now the first result of google will generally get 42% of the clicks. and the first three will get 60 odd percentage of all the clicks. The first page will take away 85% of all the clicks. and if the user comes to the second page how do you expect him to visit the last result of second page?

    This is an old study done by cornell university.

    [​IMG]

    As far as yahoo is concerned it is dead for many niches. People still use a yahoo and bing for searching about people and celebrities and few other niches, but in general the volumes are very less. So there is nothing to be proud of ranking in the second page of google or in the first page of yahoo and bing.

    Target for a SE marketer should be top3 in google.

    @ajithrocksca - did i do something wrong that is why i don't have traffic?
    i am a newbie and want to expand my knowledge.
    also my friend told me if my site is on the second page it must have visitors already,but every time i checked on analytics it is still 0.. :confused:

    whatever seo you're doing is clearly working to move you up the ranks so just keep going. yahoo is pretty insignificant for search volume.

    Hi, like they said, the objective is to get in the 3 top spots in google to be able to get consistent visitors to your site, but still with 14K exact match searches if your really on page 2 it's weird that you didnt had even 1 visitor to your site. One thing or the other must be wrong.
