    So one of my sites magically started to rank for a 1.8 million volume keyword. However I do not see any traffic at rank 4X.

    Does this prove that you must rank position 1-2 for the 99.999% of traffic OR are there misleading numbers on SEMrush?

    You have to rank in top 3 to get the most traffic!

    It’s a saying in digital world- “The best place to hide a dead body is 2nd page of Google Results!”

    Sorry but nothing lives on page 2+. It’s just a big dead sea.

      Congrats on ranking for the 1.8 million keyword though.

      I appreciate the input I guess this really proves to me that anything in 2+ has 0 value.

    OK if this ever gets to page 2 or 1, I will update!

    Position 46? You’re non-existent.

    Like they say “best place to hide a dead body is on page 2 of google”

    46 might as well be 460 as far as traffic goes.

    Only SEO’s go past the second page.

    Now the hard work actually begins rather than magic.

      Tbh. I dunno what to do next. I don’t wanna disrupt it with any white/black hat spells.

      Build links using white hat techniques and plan for a good 6 months to a year to get there that is a massive term will take time! We have a few we rank on that big and it took a while.

      It’s a great project to have.

    Honestly it’s ranking with 0 backlinks all social signals. Hence the “magic”… I’m going to keep adding more features to the web application hopefully growing the overall weight of the domain. I used to and still play with backlinks but it’s so volatile with me… i’m building an automated social posting thing with it. Maybe google likes that.

      You will never rank page one without back links.

    • #9038

      +1 on the back links – yes build out the content – yes work the social – yes grow the site but back links are still “IT”.

    Is this your own project or your client’s site?

      Personal project. I am creating dynamic data from the web. So far I’m only ranking for 24 keywords one of which is this. 2 others are in the thousands. It is a 2 month old project.

    The good thing about this is that it may help you get to position 1 for other lower volume keywords that actually produce more traffic.

      You know that’s what I am thinking.. so I am just gonna sit it out since it’s brand new and all.. Still alpha phase. So hopefully I can see those low volumes pop in. I will update.

    You need to look at the actual keyword search intent etc Doesn’t prove anything really without more info – but yes most people won’t go to pos 46.

      Yea I am not sure either, its a one word keyword just happened to pop up i think i got lucky, Its a dynamic 500 page site with almost on the hour data updates, So maybe google is testing me out. I hope I pass the test!

    Update: The keyword is now at #17 … I have not seen significant traffic but webmaster tools show some.. I will update you guys with the webmasters view in a week when I get the data.

  • #9046

    Right, don’t expect any real traffic till you’re page 1.

  • #9047

    Peter Wootton

    But if you’re page 2 for a million-searches term then you should probably already be ranking page 1 for smaller terms/variations.

    • #9048

      Peter Wootton

      Only one variation.. i thought the impressions would be much higher but those numbers are last weeks I will wait to see what #17 impressions look like.

      I think SEMrush data is slightly inaccurate.
