Wordtracker Predicted Searches And Real Traffic For #1 In Google
One of great things about the free keyword tool from Wordtracker is that it gives you a prediction of how many searches per day there are for a certain keyword.
But have you ever wondered how many visitors you REALLY get if you rank #1 in Google for that keyword?
Well, I wanted to know that many times and now I finally rank number 1 in Google for a couple high traffic keywords for my vacuum site and I can show you some numbers.
Here are my rankings for top 14 keywords that I see in my Google webmasters tools:

So let’s check the predicted Wordtracker searches per day and how much traffic you can get if you rank nr. 1 in Google for a certain keyword:
|Keyword||Wordtracker predicted||Real daily traffic||Percentage of traffic|

|vacuum cleaner ratings||380||90||23,7 %|

As you are probably aware, Wordtracker gathers data from Dogpile and Metacrawler which account to only 0.65 – 0.70% searches from the search engines.
So Wordtracker uses their database and the percentage of their searches on the Internet to predict how many real searches are there on the web.
As you can see, you can expect almost 50% of predicted daily searches according to Wordtracker if you manage to get to number one ranking in Google for a certain keyword.
If your website ranks #1 in Google for a certain keyword with more than 20 predicted searches according to Wordtracker, please share your numbers below. (If you want to protect your keyword, just use WD searches and real daily traffic.)
