    I have two articles that are ranking high on searches but have horribly low views.  How can this happen?

      Because not many people are searching for those terms.

        There are more than 2 million people searching for them!

          Then perhaps you are not matching things up correctly.  Or you definition of high ranking omits that you are under a supreme authority or on the second page.

          2 million in the keyword planner?

          Or 2 million google results?

          They aren't the same thing at all.

              There could be 10 million results for the word "purple carrot" but maybe only 100,000 people a month searching them. Number of results mean how many people are writing on them, not how many are searching for them. Maybe only 5 people a month are searching your phrase!

              I rank all over the top pages for my name (Susannah Birch) but only about 20 people a month Google that. Ranking doesn't mean much.

              The number of google search results lets you know how many pages indexed by google contain the words in your search phrase - in any order, and in any places on the page.

              Some people use the figure to determine the number of competing pages, but it's never used to determine search volume.

              You will only get an idea of search volume from a keyword tool, like google's keyword planner or wordtracker.

    How are you determining the articles rank highly on searches?

    1. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image99
      TIMETRAVELER2posted 4 years agoin reply to this

      By seeing both articles either on page 1 or two on Google without typing in anything but the key words

        Doesn't matter...I dumped them both today.

        You do realize it's possible to do searches using phrases so unique to your Hubs that they automatically come up in the top spot when you look, right?

        You only get lots of traffic if your Hubs come up in the #1 or #2 spot on page 1 for a keyword or phrase that EVERYONE is using.  The #1 spot on Google will get about 33% of all the traffic.  Number 2 gets about 18%.  After that, it really drops off.

          Relache:  Yes, I know that.  One of these showed up as number one with only two keywords, but as I said, it doesn't matter.  When views get too low, I dump the articles (of course after I have tried to upgrade them which I have done several times with these two articles)

    For more effective searches, it's suggested users put in six to eight nouns and objects.  Two word searching doesn't do it so much anymore.
