Exacly, the site I am currently monitoring regarding this is a forum with 12,000 pages. A thousand or so pages get added each month so we should see steady increases in traffic. But it seems we jump up a level every quarter or so, like Goog is saying we think with all your content/SEO/rankings you could get 50,000 visits a day but we don't trust you so your only going to get 5k, we'll re-evaluate you again in a few months. It really confirms to me that having good content, good SEO, good rankings is all well and good but without trust the site will never perform to it's true potential. This makes sense, there are many websites in any niche that deserve the lions share of the traffic, but throwing trust into the mix separates the good from the exceptional.
