    Hi, I have recently ranked fairly high for a particular keyword on my website, however it is only receiving 880 monthly searches.. Can this amount of traffic change drastically? its just I would of figure it would get a bit more traffic than it does and its still 2 months away from the event s I'm hoping to get an influx of traffic closer to the event

    Thanks for any opinions in reply to this question

      I think that by the end of September you'll have a definite answer to this question.

    If the phrase is long tail, after time you can often rank for a shorter part of the phrase which often has higher search volume. So for instance if the long tail phrase was, "How to get baby sleeping through the night" after several months you might find that you're starting to rank for "baby sleeping", but this usually happens once your initial phrase is at number 1 (from my experience anyway.)

    You might also find you start ranking well for several long tails which use a combination of words in your main title.

    I'd say help your article along with some backlinks and see if you can get it to number 1 in the search results.
