AV still has a bit of an international following. That could skew the results, so even though people like myself that only sell in the US get 0 for traffic despite good rankings, it could be a different story elsewhere...
But why should pay for being index with the above results in mind? Or bother spending time optimising?
Oh I don't. I've never bothered to much with AV. Sure we check our main phrases now and then but that's about it. What I couldn't understand was why AV is ranked 55th when it is obviously out of main stream.
Our site and company is International but hits from AV are still minimal.
The only thing I can think of as to why AV is still ranked so highly is because of it's previous popularity and having large numbers of links to it...?
