    G00gl3 recently rearranged the search results for my main keyword and my money site moved from 7th to 4th for a search phrase that receives 201,000 exact searches a month.

    My question to the community is how much traffic would you expect to generate from the 4th position of a keyword phrase that receives 200,000 exact searches a month?

    It took almost 3 years to reach this position and I owe a lot to the members of BHW. Shout out! Thanks to everyone that offered great advice.

    Completely based on the keyword.

    There are other factors such as:
    -videos or news above you?
    -how effective your title tag is for getting click through

    just to name a few

    But as the previous person mentioned, you can see impressions vs clicks with web master tools for a number.

    I'd say around 0-201,000 visitors would be likely.

    Honestly, it all depends. Your niche, your competition, title tag, META description, site name, site domain, TLD extension, search term, etc. all have a say in how many people will visit your site.

    Your best bet is to install Google Analytics and see what happens!

    Well it appears they improved webmaster tools a bit since the last time I logged into it. I suppose I have B1ng to thank for that.

    Appreciate the advice.

    Generally - 40-45% click on Result #1, 11-15% click on #2, 8-11% click on #3, and #4 about 4% or so . Based on this, i"d say 8000 Visitors a month is likely
