Well, not to be a prick about things, but I get several hundred views from Google every day....but I've been doing this on this site for close to three years, and steadily looking at my data over that time to determine what works, and what doesn't work....
I'm nowhere near Mr. Success on Hubpages.com either....I'm positive some folks get several thousand page views from Google per day, and very likely, those persons have been here a lot longer than I have, and also do things that I do not do which even I know would make me "more successful" in the monetary sense.
Keywords are desperately important to people who wish to make money online, and who plan to get a ton of page views. I do NOT research keywords, never have, and never will....sooooo, I'm not the guy to tell you how to manipulate the web for money. I am a guy who can tell you that you can do somewhat what you want to do here, and still be successful so long as you know some simple things about laying out a page with what would be called "on page search engine optimization."
Also, the second part of your question....strangely enough, most likely totally coincidentally, YES, today, I seem to be getting more page views from Google than is normal for me...especially on a Saturday, but I can't help but think that is absolutely coincidence.
