      Did you rank for a term that has search volume?

      Did you make sure you were not logged into a google account when you checked on google?

      What you need to do is read this hub How to Get a Stampede of Traffic.

    you just have to let it go with the flow..I have never checked google to see if I pop up anywhere...might just out of curiosity now, but enjoy your writing and don't worry about losing rank, gaining rank, and fluctuations smile

      I just was hoping to see an increase of traffic once i gain page rank.I thought that is what it is all about.You get ranked and people are more proned to click you site oppose to searching millions of other site.I am not fully understanding why i don't have atleast half of the traffic i research for

        Trust me , it fluctuates and is nothing to worry about. keep writing quality and soon you will be noticed and ranking high, always remeber the testament of ..it is not quantity, it is content quality..I know it seems like the more people write, the better off they do, but having a good rank and few hubs is better than having the very same rank because you have a large number of hubs that are not very indepth or informative, or even interesting...
        keep up your good work, do not fret, and let time take its course...


        After awhile , you will not really have to worry about a large fluctuation, just a little here and there.  smile

        When you say you are ranked, where are you ranked for your keyword?

        90% of all search engine clicks are on the first page of the search engine rankings.

    your doing fine and not doing anything wrong, it is not instant success and it just takes a bit of time and such..

    Enjoy yourself and your work here, the ranking and stuff will soon follow, I promise...

    the best thing is to not make it your main priority...

        Nothing to add really. Your traffic does not depend on pagerank. It depends on what place you occupy in SERPs. That's it. smile

    Page Rank as in the google measurement or search engine results placement as in where you show up when you search for your keywords in google?

    as for getting half the traffic for a term, I think 20-30% is more likely.

    Plus imagine that traffic amount spread out over a month - say 4000 searches a month, thats 1000 searches a week of which you would be lucky to see 200-300 views in the week.

    Looking at your articles, I think you need better lead ins.  When I search google, I don't care if the first result is first but if it says something I want to click on it I click on it.  Maybe your are the #1 search but #2 seems like something better to click on to the people searching.  Your titles aren't too bad but that is one part of it but your opening sentences could be more enticing.

    It seems that you are confusing two terms SERP rank and page rank. Page rank is an overall ranking of a site by Google. Where as SERP ranking effects directly your position in the Search engine result page. If you are at the first position of the first page you can expect 30 to 40 percent of search traffic.

    60 to 70 percent people do not search beyond first page. If you are in the second page you can not expect huge traffic.

    There are other ways to get traffic except SERP. You can view one of my hubs about building backlinks to make money online.

    Thanks,
