    One of my sites is currently ranking #1 for my main keyword with quotes and #5 for the same keyword without quotes...

    So far, Ok...

    I saw it on Monday morning...

    On Monday noon I could not see it at all, so I thought I got sandboxed/de-indexed etc...

    but No! If I go to ANY other computer and do the same search, I'll see the site ranking the same place...

    Why everyone, but me, can't see it?

    I don't think its much of a problem. I would start to worry if the opposite happens: i.e. You can see your site @ #1 but no one else can...

    Are you getting traffic?

    Actually I'm not getting any traffic...

    At all...

    I've used some US proxies, different computers, and the site showed #1 for them all (on google.com), yet, I have seen absolutely no traffic come from google on this site, it's #1 for the keyword with quotes, and #5 without quotes, the searches for the exact are approx. 45,000 globally/month... How much traffic should I be getting?

    No traffic means no ranking. Were you getting traffic before when you could see it? Might try clearing the cache on the computer showing it with rankings. Odd.

    I never got Google traffic (not traffic for a #1 or #5 ranking site)...

    I could see my site at #1 for a day or two when I check for it rankings the other day...

    Log out from your google account.

    Delete your cache/cookies/internet temporary files.

    Don't search with quotes, cause nobody when looking for something types quotes (i.e. there is no glory in being first for "your kw")

    And as already stated, if you don't get traffic from Google, you are not ranked. Peace.

    I'm #4 without quotes...

    But I guess #4 sucks, right?

    I just saw Google's search insights, and it looks like the searches for this keyword dropped terribly from last month's into the current one...

    Adwords Keyword tool says it's searched 40,000 a month globally and 9,000 locally (USA), but I'm getting ABSOLUTELY NO traffic from google from this keyword, got a few hits from random keyword on the niche but no this one, which is one of the main for this niche...
