    My blog has 3 main Kws in first page, around #4 to #6
    Keyword 1 has 110k exact monthly local searches, #4
    keyword 2 has 100k exact monthly local searches #5
    Keyword 3 has 50k exact monthly local searches. #6
    some of my longtail Kws also rank in first page.(inner posts) but I only get 200-300 visitors, 1000 views per day.
    The main problem is there isn't so much searches volumes at all, I will upload images somedays later, this is my first site, when I build it I didn't know amazon aff so it only can get profit via adsense, with such traffic I can get nothing. So I will wait and see if it is worth to update this blog.

    Are you sure you did the keyword research right and they actually get so many searches? Seems like you went drastically wrong somewhere...

    do the keyword research in exact match, you may have done broad.

    Yea do a exact match for the keyword using "keyword". If you don't include the double quotes you will be searching broad terms and the search volume will be much higher.

    The majority of the search volume goes to the top 3 results. I think it's about 80% if I remember correctly.
    If that is the case, the number of visitors you're getting for 3 keywords would seem about right for that search volume.
    It's once you hit top 3 rank, that you'll see some huge traffic.

    What keyword tool did you use? Many keyword tools display bogus data for keywords in their database and consequently mislead internet marketers. That's why I only perform keyword research with Google's keyword tool or any tool that pulls data directly from Google, such as Long Tail Pro.

    Positions 1 - 3 are the prime spots for gaining tons of traffic from search engines. If your keyword search volumes are correct, then you need to build more links to reach the top 3.
