Whether or not you benefit from Google traffic will depend on you. Will you get lots of traffic if you rank on Google for certain keywords? Sure! Of course, you will get traffic. Will that traffic conver to sales? Maybe or maybe not, just depending on whether or not the people coming in from Google search are actually in the mood to buy. The best option is to get people who are hopping in from the search engines to opt into a newsletter or email list so that you can entice them back later on after they have forgotten your link.

I feel keyword research is the backbone of SEO. Otherwise it can be very competitive. Remember satisfaction consists in competition! The more competitive SEO is the more thrilling it can be. Actually there are no disadvantages of SEO if I am allowed to say so.
