    Hey guys, I'm curently ranking #1 on google, for a keyword that gets around 33,000 monthly searches, but I'm only getting around 30visitors per day (according to wordpress stats). I'm getting around 300visitors/day in total, from search engines alone.
    What's weird, is my bing and yahoo position..
    What do you think about this?

    33k broad match, "phrase match" or [exact match]?

    What is broad match guys?
    The reasults are for the exact keyword match. and also if ppl write the 2nd option for the keyword, I still rank 1st.

    2 years here, 500+ posts, jrvip,

    You should already know what a broad match is. It's basic knowledge of keyword analysis.

    Broad match = Contains all the words, may be in any order, and may include other words
    Phrase match = Contains all the words, in order, and may include other words before or after the phrase
    Exact match = Contains only these words in this order

    When you type "keyword" in google you get a phrase match, when you type [keyword] in google you get exact match.

    Please tell me it still says 33 000 searches when you type [yourkeyword] in keyword planner, or else you have made a terrible mistake.

    If you are sure it's exact, start checking website uptime and load times

    You should check your snippet, and what stat tracking are you using?

    I currently rank a similar MS keyword, ranked #4, getting 500-600UV a day for just 1 keyword.

    i would say your stat tracking are way offffffffff or your snippet look way too irrelavant to readers.

    Let me know if i can help.

    Thank you for explaining, but I suggest you judge less next time. Not everyone is for SEO on this forum. I recently started caring about it, cause I was working with other parts of the Internet Marketing for over an year till now. I mean, you get nothing out of it, nor do I.

    Lol, no it doesn't now.. wierd.................
    Anyways, my site is based on more than one keyword (authority site), and I haven't invested nothing on it, just was wondering.
    this is very good to know. how should I search for exact matching keywords next time? how to avoid this mistake again? I wanna write the base keyword, then rank the other similar keywords, by their monthly searches..

    Thank you soo much!

    Maybe it's personal search that's ranking you first on Google. Google see's you're going to this site all the time so Google assumes it's very important to you, therefore it ranks you first when you search those keyword terms but it doesn't rank you first for everyone else. I think those bing and yahoo results support my theory as well.

    That's what I thought too at first, but that's why I used an online SERP checker...

    I would go with what's currently reported as traffic for that keyword in the Google Keyword Planner. What does it state your keywords traffic is now?

    I'm almost certain you checked when broad match was still available in the keyword planner. As default, all keywords are now reported as exact match in the keyword planner.

    You know that within the Keyword Planner there is little graph (found next to the monthly searches) and by hovering over the icon you'll see how it varies by month. The number shown in Keyword Planner is an average across the year so if you put in 'christmas trees' it shows a search volume of 49,500 but I can tell you now that you're not going to get that sort of volume right now. Instead the little graph that pops up when you hover over the icon shows that it jumps up to 150,000 in November and 250,000 in December.

    What does your keyword show? Even search volume throughout the year or a spike at some point?

    could just be a seasonal keyword and not many people are searching for it anymore, the monthly searches that the keyword planner show are a 12 month average. also the keyword planner now only shows exact match searches so no need to worry about broad of phrase match.

    I actually went many years without knowing the difference, in fact back in the day I did not even research keywords. Anyway if you are using Keyword Planner, these days it is automatically set to the exact match search.

    Valid points brought up in this thread.
    Check whether the results are broad, phrase, or exact.
    Check competition using allintitle:"keyw o r d" and allinurl:"ke yw ord" and allinanchor:"k eywo rd"
    Check whether or not it's a seasonal item or something that's no longer being searched as much, as in, if it's Out of Style.
