There has been a lot of discussions about SEO, whether it works or whether it's ethical to sell services and about some techniques, but no one talked about traffic. I've been in unfortunate situation where I got a website to #1 and it received almost zero traffic, there is a thread about this. I have other websites that potentially will have the same issue. I'm planning on developing those then sell them. The problem is that the sponsored ads above the organic listing are sucking all the traffic. But since no one is talking about this, there must be people making money off sites ranking in the top. I'm hesitant whether to start a new website because of this issue, but it's actually very tempting since once a website ranks, you get free traffic and have a passive income. I need advice from those people, at least some tips on what to watch out for and what type of keywords to look for. Preferably some numbers too so I can get it right next time. Thanks in advance.
