    How many times is it searched for?


    Is there any way to get an idea how many times a month a phrase is searched for on google? The phrase im interested in is 'web hosting provider'.

    No. The best you can do is look it up at Overture so you have a small idea of how popular the term is.

    With 241,153 I'd say it is a very popular keyword, however, it has 10,300,000 results at Google. Unless you have thousands of dollars to invest in SEO and gathering excellent backlinks, I'd suggest you look for another term.

    Actually, there is a way to check how much traffic Google gets for any keyphrase. Run an AdWords campaign for a day, week or month or whatever your research budget allows. Use a bounded keyphrase ( [] ) and limit ad distribution to just Google. As long as your bidding enough for your ad to display in the top 8, you can count the impressions and get a solid feel for the traffic.

    Add some sex appeal to your title tag.

    Your competitors are getting the clicks because they have "free"... "high-speed"... "best"..... "$7.95".... "ultimate".... "4 Less"..

    Your title is ... ho hummm... What do you have that can GRAB attention from those?

    Exactly im afraid of changing anything big like that, because obviously there are a lot of other sites (about 11 million of em) waiting to hop in front of me and most probably have sexier title tags than me.

    Im tempted to try and redo my site and linking to optimize for 'web hosting' instead of 'web hosting provider'. if i keep an exact copy of whats there now and switch back if i dont like the results do i risk losing a ton of ranking or no?

    Well... it's almost 2 am here, so I can't really check your site, I'm too tired, lol. I did want to ask why is your page so damn heavy?? I stopped it at 2mb and it was still loading!

    What I saw is that you don't have much on-page seo, but your site is huge, over 40k indexed pages at Google, and you also have a huge amount of backlinks, that is sure helping you to keep your spot.

    I don't think you should make any drastic changes, or you might end up loosing your current rankings. I am surprised of the low traffic you say you are getting, I guess that proves my theory that Overture's tool suggestion has nothing to do with Google's network searches. What you can do is change your future backlinks and insted of using the keyword "web hosting provider" change it to just "web hosting", but don't do anything to the current ones, with so many competitors after your spot you need to think things carefully.

    I agree 100%. But his current situation is not producing.

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I would drop "HostRocket" and replace with sex appeal. Experimentation is easy and yeilds fast results. If it doesn't work you can put the old title tag back.

    Brendan,

    I agree with EGOL on this one. If you keep it and you get no hits, what is the good? Time to start experimenting and monitoring the new hits.

    That bandwidth rollover program is cool...put that in the title
