Have you tried looking through your own server log files? It may be a problem with analytics not showing the details.

Hmm do you mean my 'raw access logs' ? I find it difficult to read these - not sure if there is some viewer available to present the data better..
Awstats gives similar results to GA
Maybe the Keyword tool is just way off in its estimates

Awstats are good. They work from your log files. It certainly seams unusual.

What keyword tool are you using? I am assuming based on your terminology the Google Adsense too? If so - that's your reason :)

Where did you get those search volume numbers from? Depending on the source they could be very wrong. If you where position 5 for a keyword that gets 300K searches per month you should have some visitors by now.

Can you tell us what the keyword is? Maybe we can put our heads together and help you out with some real expectations.

Dude sorry and i appropriate all replays but believe me the reason that you don't have click is that you don't have attractive title for example if u are looking for a car:
Car ¦ For Rent <=== not attractive
Cheap Cars ¦For Rent <=== more attractive
play with the user eye and attract it then you will gain more click

Hi, Yes I'm using the Google adwords tool. What else could I use that's free?
Don't think I'd be allowed to say KW due to TOS, but if anyone can help sticky me. I'm currently ranked 3rd for it.
I'm in UK, with a .co.uk so I don't expect I would be top page if you searched in US. Still, with 20k local searches I thought I would do better.

Try this: [tools.seobook.com...]
I have got more realistic results it.

What kind of Match Type did you select? The Google AdWords Tool defaults to "Broad" match, which can be useful for AdWords, but it's useless for getting impression data for organic search targeting.
I recommend entering many variations and selecting "Exact" match.

True that - good advice.

Ok thanks, with exact match I'm getting 8000 local, and 90,500 global. Still seems a bit odd, but I suppose there's not much I can do about it.

8000 local per month is 266 per day. Being on pos. 5 means you only get a small share of that. Knowing that your text which shows in the SERPs is not yet optimized to get visitors, zero results are possible. Please also take into account that visitors don't search for some things every day. Maybe the 8000 are not evenly distributed over the month.
