    Hi, I started about a month ago with a new WP Blog, in a niche with about 1390000 competitions. Keyword is in the domainname

    I update the blog every second day with a new unique niche relevant article. I am doing backlinking (about 240 indexed yet)

    But... Top of visitors per day was 8, and since the last days its always 0 to maximal 4 users...

    This sucks so much, search volume per month for this keyword is 160k and for the second keyword 1000k

    Hope you can help me.

    This is my first blog at all!

    Where are you ranked at? You left that part out. If you are not ranked you will not receive traffic from searches. You will only receive traffic from backlinks.

    the visitors is based on your rank in search engine...and also where you put your backlinks...I think bookmark in digg and other socialmarker can attract visitors as well.

    Yes you need tell us your rank. You might need some higher authority sites backlinks. try some social bookmarking service here at bhw, Also do some video marketing on youtube. This should help you out and get some directory submission. Also maybe add a traffic package from someone in bhw there are many. Hope this helps and gets you some more vistors. Too much success!!:)

    @Ingredible, you are online, many people are here asking questions to help you and you do not care. Please answer and tell us about your keyword analysis. Were the numbers EXACT or BROAD? How did you find the volume of competitors? Why is there such a ig gape etween 2 keywords (one has a volume of 160k and the other 1000k)? Do you know that they are nearly impossile numbers?

    You might want to look into craigslist or some other classfied sites if your niche is relevant to one of the categories there.

    If you are in last pages on search ranking, then it does not matter how many times the keyword is searched, as visitors will not find your blog on the beginning results. If u can be shown in first page, then u may expect some good visitors.

    If you are waiting for the search engine traffic ... than this will take more few months.

    But however for the time being do these things -

    # Open Accounts in different forums in your niche and start adding valuable posts on those forums. (Valuable means valuable not crap)

    # Make a list of blogs on your niche and start adding valuable opinion through their comments section.

    # Open twitter account on this niche follow people who are in your niche and whenever you add new posts simply tweet the latest post.

    In both case do not forget to add avatar or gravatar.

    Within 15 - 20 days you will be able to see traffic.

    Here main factor is consistency -

    # Be consistent in adding posts
    # Be consistent in adding comments on blogs and posts on thread.

    Email spam??? how is that going to get you ranked? Seriously do not bother. The number of emails you need to send out are huge. Now once you get a site with traffic and you work on getting a list that is another matter. That is not spam and it converts much better.

    First off your site is only a month old. Way too early to be worrying. Honestly I do not even check a new sites rankings for the first three months. I do however have a plan in place already when the site goes live which you need to work out.

    Second you need to realize that what really matters is getting on the first page. Something like 98% of the searchers for a term never go past the fist page so even spot 11 is getting nothing but scrapes.

    You need to look at the links for the guys at spots 9 and 10 and see what you need to get to rank on the first page. Right now those sites are your competition. You have to beat them to make any money.

    Third how did you come up with your search volume? Was it exact searches or broad? If broad you need to take another look because exact is what you really need to use.

    Proper research is the most important thing when picking your niche. You really need to know that you can get a site ranked and when you do it will produce an income. Nothing sucks worse than working on a site for months, getting it to #1 and finding out you get crap for traffic or what you do get does not convert. I know, I have done it more than once though I do it now less than I used to do.

    If you have already created a bunch of web2.0 pages and articles with senuke then I would concentrate on profile links both to your site and the articles and web 2.0 pages you have already created. That would probably be the best way for you to proceed from this point.
