    So guys After some GSA blast, my site went from nowhere to 15th position for a keyword with 310,000 monthly searches according to keyword planner. With your experience, how much of traffic I must get for being in this position? The site stucked at this position for over 3 days now and the amount of traffic I'm getting when compared to the search count is really unbelievable. (The Keyword has a constant rate of monthly searches during the last 12 months)

    you only really start seeing traffic when you hit page 1. it increases further when it hits top 5, then explodes when it hits number 1. Top 3 has normally given me just around 30% of the traffic, when compared to the number 1 spot. This is the main reason why seo isn't easy; its top of page 1... or nothing major. It's a lesson that many people learn about seo after they start to see rank.

    If you can't hit the top spots for the main kw then the other option is to rank multiple lower comp kw's towards the top.

    I bet you're looking at the "broad search" volume.

    That's what i thought first but then the option on the kw planner is now exact match.

    Its very hard to predict. As people before me said you can see decent number of visitors if you are in 1st page. But if you are in health niche and the keyword is about information seeking rather than selling,you will get visitors. Most of the people looking for health related things dig deeper than any one else.

    This is like a how long is a piece of string question.

    As someone who regularly attacks these larger keywords, generally if you get to page 2 where you are it would be in the range of 50-100 hits maybe?

    At least that's what I have found.

    However it all depends on what niche and type of keyword it is.

    this works very good when you want to improve ranks.

    you should be getting 50+ visitors/day .

    Yes, i believe it, you rank 15th place, thats page 2 in the middle. When you search for something , do you go to page 2? I dont' most of the times.

    same for me. for one of my niches i have about 6 keywords ranked on 15-20 place. I get about 10 visitors from google.
    There is really a big difference between only few places.

    Get into page 1...then you'll find loads of visitors if it is really an exact match 310k...if it is a product review site then normally it shows very less visitors as people tend get all good reviews in page1 itself.

    depends upon keyword.

    think as a visitor.

    some time you will check up to page 5 while searching.
    or
    some time you will change your keyword if you not got desired results on page 1.
