I am ranked #1 for some really great words on MSN but, I am geting like 7 people a day from them. I do not get it. The Overture tool says that these words are searched for thousands of times a month. Shouldn't I expect more? I know that this is not Overture, but shouldn't that give me a ballpark figure?
If something is searched for 1000 times a day and I am ranked #1, I better be getting more than 5 people a day clicking on that number 1 spot.
It must be about topics then! I am in the UK and some sites I manage get 30% referrals from MSN.
It does seem to be about the way conversion pages rank (and by that I mean buying or product pages).
These seem to not rank as highly and more the main pages do better and so it is harder to get a click. Also, more generic pages can get clicks from MSN than Google which seems to suggest that sites that get niche phrases with clicks in Google will not get clicks from MSN as their users do not search for detailed info like G users.
