So: with only 3 clicks coming from the entire Adsense network, I would suggest that your couple of "organic" clickthroughs is remarkably good!
You just need a sense of perspective
So the keyphrase in the grand scheme of things is a pretty poor one, even though it's targeted to what I do.
Also the fact I get nearly as many organic hits as I would for paying over a broader range of data, I should pat myself on the back, not pull my hair out with frustration.
Is that what your saying?
If you've got a good ranking on a search that's performed pretty often but you've got a low CTR, I'd say you should look at how your page appears on the SERP: what's the title, is it long enough to get cut off, and if so, where does it get cut off? What's the snippet that's used?
Well is 5400 a month based on a broad range of data centers, a search that's performed pretty often? Chris seems to be implying it's not!
I just thought if i'm doing so well for the keyphrase (ok I know it's when I search for myself or ask others - not a good measure!!), 90 hits per month out of a possible 5,400 seems poor, who's getting the other 5,310 visitors?
And yes some title tags get truncated, but not to any detriment really and the snippet is usually my description tag and very targeted.
Is that exact match or broad? If it's broad, that would explain the discrepancies.
Err what ever the tool defaults to, I didn't check that to be honset Jill, I'll go check......Dunno, I can't find it as an option, all there is under advanced options is location and languages, can you tell me what match the Traffic Estimator Tool uses?
