    Well ... I've ranked a niche (a facebook game h_ack, popular one), has about 45-50k exact searches monthly. But only 2-3 clicks a day on it. The hell? Maybe the video is still dancing and shit? But I've checked it with cookies and everything erased, on google.com and it is the 3rd result (first page), my video.

    I suggest using rank checkers or hidemyass web proxy maybe?

    Checked right now with hidemyass webproxy, I'm 2nd now on google. 1 rank up.

    Anything else? I'm just f***in' confused ... cause I've been working a lot on that video, I was 100% sure I'll be making some good money out of it, but ... wtf!

    i think you need to be a little patience that highly depend on offers you are using, maybe your affiliate account have some problem or it get updated on a certain time.

    I've checked the stats for the bit.ly link which I have in my description. I have 25 clicks today (and about 7 on the affiliate link). But still ... for a 40k exact searches keyword? Kinda weird.

    Some of the Google rank information is so freaking bogus, I had three major keywords picked out with supposed major traffic, I then managed to rank 1-5 and there was no traffic for months. After that WTF experience I'm going a different direction and back to DM. Screw Google!

    Been there a few years ago.
    I too was ranking #1 for a "18,000+ / month" keyword only to find my site receiving around 10 visitors per day.
    I doubt anyone will be able to explain why but Google search estimates are just fucked up sometimes...

    Video is perfect, I'm showing what that tool does and even with proof. Description is good, on-page-seo is very good optimised, that's why I ranked my video with just 1,5k views, something like that. I'm showing them exactly how I h_ack that game, that's more than enough, lol.

    Ya I have had that happen, you don't REALLY know how much traffic a keyword gets until you rank it. But if it's a popular facebook game hack, it should be getting a lot of hits. Maybe the pages around yours were more enticing for someone to click.

    Also your kw might be a seasonal or trend keyword. Maybe it WAS that popular pulling 40k per month but now its died down. Google search volume is a monthly average over the year. So maybe 500k people searched the keyword in the last year but only over a few months while the thing was still super popular but now its died down. Just my thoughts.

    It could be the fact that your video lacks a call of action. Or maybe what you offer in your video is something a lot people know about already.
