    top ranking but not getting the traffic


    I'm just confuse but I'm not into PPC/adwords task right now, I just noticed that one of my colleague work on the adwords and I found that we're on top 3 or 4 for a high search keyword but we're not getting the traffic in GA. How is that happen? it has around 4k searches per month. Can someone give me some light?

    Did you add GA tracking code on the landing pages?

    What does your Adwords report say? If you don't have clicks there either, then you need to work hard on your ads titles and description to increase CTR, but a CTR of 0% seems unlikely to me so as SmartyRank said check your analytics configuration on your site.

    Regarding the adwords report, I don't have access on that... I'm just monitoring the traffic at that time, my main responsibility here is the SEO organic... I just posted that question because I'm confuse.

    Have you linked your Google analytics to your Adwords account?
    If not Adwords traffic data might fall into organic searches.
    I faced this situation for a client I follow as an SEO and couldn't understand the organic traffic until I asked him if he was running Adwords campaigns and he told me yes... Weird thing is that the campaigns were run by an Adwords certified agency that didn't even asked him if he had an analytics account, may be to hide their performances.
