    Hello,

    This question seems to be very comic, but I really want to know. I just want to know, If huge traffic arrives at your website (due to rank #1 on Google), what benefit you are going to get? Hope someone here can give my plunge question.

    Thanks

    If you control what people get to see, then you have power. That power can be directed in a financial manner. Funnelling people through to affiliate products etc. giving you commissions.

    Thanks for the reply "fwd"... but do millions of people only earn money due to affilicate products? I mean, even if huge amount of traffic arrives at your website, I must say many will not click on website.

    If you have current position in Google #1 with particular keyword that's directly increasing site traffic , when traffic increasing that' directly strong your financial value.

    That is what I want. You mean to say, I will be getting money automatically into my account if a person visit my website? Or are you talking about page impression of Google Adsense?

    Hi,

    There is nothing like getting money automatically. Ranking #1 is to get free traffic from search engine that is targeted for a particular keyword. How the traffic brings you money is another issue since it will mainly depend on two things ;
    1-Method of monetization
    2-Quality of the traffic

    Cheers,
    ytterium

    Not sure if serious! If you were page 1 more traffic to you website meaning tons more monies ! If you know how to monetize well and depending how much traffic your keyword provides.

    How much people will click your ads depends on what the keywords are you're targeting #1 for. Ex. 'my stepmother hates me' is not likely going to bring you many sales. But 'where to buy canon d1', will. The second aspect of getting them to click/buy is how you psychologically approach your visitor. You can come across as manipulative easily, but with enough subtlety or honesty or many things you can get them to buy more. Also your presentation is of value.

    The traffic is one thing.


    The most important things are how targetted you traffic is and what is its expectations.

    For example :

    Your website rank 1st for "what colors are the elephants".

    If your website talks about mice, you won't monetize anything.

    Nor, if you talk about the size of the elephants for 18 pages and finally you talk about the colors.

    To optimize the earning from the example, you know that people will look for a straight answer, so your monetization system should be right on the first page the visitor reach, and quickly achievable for a visitor.

    On another hand if the query is "thesis on elephant", you will have a completly different monetization system and a completly different audience.

    As stated above, you have the actions keywords which are heavily profitable such as "buy an elephant" which is more likely easier to monetize.

    To sum up, your website should follow a plan from a foreseen navigation according to the kind of traffic you receive and according to the product you sell / your way of monetization

    Actually your the comic. Are you just a troll?

    Common sense would indicate if you rank number one you will get more traffic from your targeted keywords. Would you rather rank 5, 10 or 100?

    Please do your trolling elsewhere.

    Thanks to all who gave me positive answers and the one who are telling, I'm troll>No I'm not. I'm just gathering some basic knowledge about it and be humble in answering.

    Guys,

    If more traffic will come to my website, how much money I can get ? Is that money from Adsense or different?

    It is all about the numbers. If you have say a 2% conversion rate and your commission is $5 per conversion out of 100 people you can expect to get $10. Now out of 1000 visitors you can expect to get $100 and so on up the line. Yes not all will click on your ads and make you money but it is the same reason that McDonald's builds their stores at busy intersections, the more people that see it the more that are going to buy something.

    Position number one means two things. First of all, you will get more visitors, because the majority of viewers searching for the term will go to the first result. I don't know about you, but when I search for something, I usually go to the first, second, or third result. I don't go to page 14 and start looking for results.

    Secondly, the top position will give you more "respect". If Google is displaying your website first for the keyword, why would somebody trust a website from page eight more than yours which is ranked first? Knowing that it's ranked first gives you more credit.


    But there is no "certain" amount of money you will make. If you are using Adsense, a multitude of factors can affect the overall outcome. If you have a terrible theme, users will be less likely to engage in clicking the ads. If you have no content, they might feel something's "up" and leave. If you have too many ads, people might feel overwhelmed and leave to the next site hoping that it'll be cleaner and easier to understand.

    The last factor is obviously the traffic volume. If your keyword generates a large amount of searches, then you will get more traffic, and therefore more clicks on ads. If your keyword only gets 100 searches a month (and let's say, even though it's impossible that %100 of searches click your website) then you're only getting ~3 hits a day, and your chances of monetization are slim.

    So hard work, research, and a good structure help it pay off!

    Take a look at this article, insights.chitik (dot) com/2010/the-value-of-google-result-positioning/ Nearly 40% of the total traffic comes from the Google position number 1.
