    My site finally places well on google; but still not much more traffic


    Any ideas why? I am getting anywhere from 50 to 100 unique visits per day and about 1000 to 2000 hits per day. But from what I here that isn't much at all. I am pretty sure that the search terms I am targeting are pretty popular and the site is coming up in the top 10 for most of them now. Is there really anything else I can possibly do at this point?

    Well... it means that your keywords aren't very popular.

    A typical mistake of many webmasters is that they choose 1 or 2 most popular keywords and start working on them. However they forget that there are many secondary keywords (can be 10 or 100), and it's not hard to get top positions by them but in result 20-30 secondary keyword will bring more traffic than 1-2 top keywords.

    As for your situation, it's hard to say anything for sure if you don't know at least the keywords.

    Keywords may not be the only problem. You can rank 1st or 2nd but because of badly written title and description people may not want to click on it. Make sure title and description are attractive so people want to click on your link. Both should not be very long however.

    Yep, faremax hit it on the head. This is when complete sentences matter in the search engine snippets.
