Supposely the result you have reached is not so difficult to reach. BTW, what Wordtracker say about these keywords? How often they are queried?
What traffic you have for now? How many people visit your site a day?

If you haven't already, you can do some quick keyword evaluation for popularity with Wordtracker, Overture Keyword Suggestion Tool or 3rd party software programs like Good Keywords.
Of course if Disney has defined the target keyword phrases for you then these tools would only be useful for your own information. If notable discrepancies exist, you could bring it up to your client though.
Nice work on the site!

I admit that I didnt research the keywords that I chose to optimize each page with... I simply went with a 'gut feeling' on that while creating the pages with the potential visitor in mind. I will definitely go back and do that now to see if I can fine-tune the site
Also, I didnt mean to imply that Disney chose the keywords or keyword phrases, but that the actual text/content couldnt be changed in many instances, including having some of it bold or italicized, or using certain phrases and not being allowed to use others, etc.
So... I am off to do that research, I'll keep you posted! Thanks again!!

There is other traffic as well, of course - some from here, some from the link on my profile page, plenty of direct page views (some of which could be Shari and I checking each page as we tweaked on the site, etc).
These are small numbers yet, I realize But definitely encouraging!! The challenge is to research keywords, increase site traffic from the search engines... and then to watch closely to see what percentage of visitors choose to subscribe, purchase or make an inquiry.
This has all been very fun to watch and track so far! I'm glad Shari agreed to let me use her site as a "guinea pig" LOL - isnt she a gem?

When I see the "count", this is an approximate number for how many times that word/phrase has been searched in the last two months.... right?? So to break it down by day, you would divide it by 60? Or by month, you would divide it by 2? Or am I way off here??

How are you?
Yes you did a good job on your web sites SEO, but you are also a little bit over rating your own success by just checking key phrases that have at least 3 words.
Don't get me wrong,.. you did a great job,.. many web masters will be jealous.
When you manage to get those high rankings at phrases like "disney vacation", "disneyland", etc,... then you will see the real advantage that SEO gives you. Also you will find that SEO on the shorter terms is a lot more difficult. But you definitely are doing very well,..

The count figure in Wordtracker is the number of occurances in the database of that term. This database covers the past 60 days of data from a couple of metacrawlers.
If you want to see the estimated numberof searches daily on a particular search engine you will have to go the the competition results under predict, but be aware that this is only a statistical projection based on the data in the Wordtracker database and the market share of the search engine involved.

I agree, Peter - I'm just a bit excited about the potential is all
I honestly didnt expect to get indexed AT ALL that quickly - much less have over 40 click through's from searches on AOL/Google/Yahoo!
You're correct, though, and I am currently working on more in-depth keyword research in preparation for the link-building strategy. Thanks!!
