Why High Ranking Does Not = Traffic/Sales

By Chris Richardson

Gaining top positions within search engines is no guarantee of traffic increases. Even if traffic does increase, there are still no assurances this traffic will convert into paying customers. These very issues are what a couple of posters at WebProWorld recently faced. Each has decent-to-top SERP rankings but they have little to show for it, business and traffic-wise.

The first poster, monarchanurag, owns custom-made men's clothing store specializing in Jodhpuri suits.

Beside SEO and SERP rankings I have no advertising budget because I thought with good SERP ranking will come the traffic, only to find out that it (SERP) is not a field of dream(s)."
