    Hi,

    Today, as I do everyday on the morning, I checked my google ranks on my serpbook account and I found that:

    -one of my sites, which isn't even 1 month old, scalated 287 positions and it's ranking on page 2 for a keyword that I believe has lot of competition: 240.000 exact monthly searches.
    -when I woke up I was ranking at #13 but right now I'm on #17.

    The funny thing is that according to google analytics I didn't receive one single visit from google thanks to those keywords, maybe it's because nobody goes to page 2 of search results... I don't know
    According to serpbook I have less than 30 backlinks and I didn't spent more than one hour on link building for that site neither hire any SEO service, so I'm surprised to be ranking so well.

    Do I have a gem on my hands and should run to hire a SEO service for that domain? I'm a little bit newbie on this and I guess I should do that, but seeing that being on page 2 isn't bringing any visitors I don't know...

    Thanks in advance

    Monetize it and get it to page one. Simple. But, think before you select you monetizing method.

    Thanks for the reply mate. I would run adsense as it's the method I always used and till now it doesn't work so bad.

    What surprise me is that I'm not getting a single visitor for being on page 2 of google search results, so do you think I should hire a SEO service a.s.a.p or maybe I should wait if I stay few days on that position?

    With so high traffic no visitors is truly a bit suspicious. Could you clear the browser cache, use a proxy and check the results again?

    Yes, this would matter a lot. When I started first, I was on 1st page for a high comp KW, but then read that the cookies play a good role in this game and checked and wasn't in top 100. But managed 1st page after working on the site with SEO.

    Not necessary to hire someone, if you know what needs to be done. If not, you should probably.

    I don't think it's a cache issue because I realised about it thanks t serpbook.com, not because I made the search on my own. By the way, I just tested again and here are the results:
    -Using serpbook.com search tool I'm on position #15
    -Using a U.S proxy I was on #22

    I guess I should wait few days just to see if the ranks stays on 2nd or third position and in case it does, then proceed to make SEO like crazy.
