It matters where you are at in a SERP and how much the term is searched daily. You can 10,000 pages and 1000 links and #1 in a SERP but if a phrase is only searched 20 times that day that is all you will possibly get for that day. The amount of visitors can not be figured out that way. You have to take unto consideration all of your SERPs, how well you place, and how many times the phrase is searched for. Stacey ```
