    One of my blogs is ranking 6th place on google for a 12k keyword but I still seem to be getting virtually no traffic to that blog, according to google analytics.

    Does anyone know what sort of numbers one could expect (rough guess of course) from this?

    Oh yeah it's on goggle.co.uk as I'm targeting UK with the blog.

    Or are 12k MS on global Searches?

    Keyword Planner and monthly estimates overall can be quite off topic. I am top 3 for 70K keyword and top 10 for other related keywords, which should bring cople of hundred UVs a day, yet I get like 60 - 70 tops.

    Don't rely on that.

    ah that's what I'm looking for
    Nightly, thank you.
    so off top of my head I should be getting around 500 uv a month 125 a week, I guess that is not that far out after all, I had hoped for more from 12k and none of the buggers convert lol
    thanks for all replies guys.

    I do not bother about traffic until am top 3 for my primary KW. This is where majority of the traffic goes.

    Top 3 would fetch the max traffic. Any chance you see no traffic on Analytics and its set up incorrectly? Ideally, there should be some traffic.

    Depends on your niche and a few other factors.. but you can definitely use Google's figures as a rough guideline.

    12,000 / 30 = 400 views per day.

    Approx 5% = 20 views per day.

    The traffic you're currently getting sounds about right.
