A single position can make a big difference

Studies show that 43% of the searchers click the first result on a search result page. The top 3 websites on the first search result page get more clicks than the other websites on the result page combined.

If your website moves from position 4 to position 3, your website will get many more visitors. The visitor increase is even higher if you move from the second results page to the first results page.

Almost 90% of the searchers check only the first search results page. Moving from page two to page one will have a dramatic influence on the number of visitors that Google sends to your site.

Which keywords are worth it?

Getting listed on Google’s first results page can be difficult. It depends on the keyword whether this is worth the time and effort or not.

Here’s an example:

  • Say you run an ad on Google AdWords (soon to be Google Ads) for a particular keyword that gets 10,000 searches during a week.
  • 200 visitors click your ad to visit your website.
  • Six of these visitors purchase something on your website and the total profit is $500.

That means that the average single visitor who finds your website through that keyword is worth $2.50 to your business ($500/200 visitors = $2.50/visitor).

10,000 people search for the keyword every week. If your website was listed as the first result for this keyword, you’d get 4327 visitors per week (as 43.27% of all clicks go to the top ranked page).

You would earn $10,817.50 per week with just one top ranking. It’s very likely that this is worth your time and efforts.

How to find these keywords

The opportunities section in the Ranking Monitor in SEOprofiler shows you the keywords that are nearly ranked on the first results page (or the top 3 results, or the top result):

The keywords in the ‘Opportunities’ section in the Ranking Monitor already have good rankings. It is relatively easy to get them on the first results page (or in the top 3 results, or on the first position). By focusing on these keywords, you can invest your time and money wisely.
