    My website is number 24 (page 3) for a keyword that has 60.000 US local search volumes and so far I'm only getting like 5 or 10 unique visits a day. WTF!

    This is depressing. :(

    When you do a web search, do you ever look at the results beyond the first page? beyond the top 5? Theres' your answer.

    You've answered your own question.

    You are on page 3 and getting about 10 a day = 300 a month, that sounds better than average as not very many people actually make it to the third page, unless you are providing something very unique and specialised, and folk need to sift through pages.

    Your question should probably be more geared around "What optimization do I need to do to try to get my site to rank higher".

    to be honest it's not really that bad because you're only in the 3rd page..

    Oh you have no idea how much work I put to make it to page 3...

    Let me rephrase my question.

    At what rank shall I see decent traffic for the keyword that I'm targeting?

    Sorry if I sound a bit rude but making money off SEO is much harder than I thought...

    If you are on the no. 1 position (Page 1) and say if you are getting 2000 hits per day, just expect to get about 200 hits (10%) if you are no. 10 position (Page 1).

    When you hit top 5 you will start to see real traffic.

    You wont get decent traffic until you're on page 1. Also your keyword might not be that good...
