One of our favourite jokes is, “Where’s the best place to hide a dead body?”
The answer is of course, “On the 2nd page of Google!”
If you’ve ever held a first position in Google, then subsequently lost it, you’ll know how true this is. Statistics show that around 72% of all clicks are made on the 1st page of Google – and pages 2 and 3 only get 5.5%.
The top 5 results in Google account for 67% of ALL the clicks made by users.
The fact is, that being top of Google can make a real, tangible difference to your business. It can be the difference between the phone ringing – or not. At Revive, we have worked within Google’s guidelines for over 15 years, and have seen many companies that try and ‘trick’ Google fall by the wayside, but credible, Google-approved techniques continue to work.
If you are wondering how other companies beat yours in the search engine results, or want to know how many extra visitors you should expect when you reach the top of Google – book in for a free Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) audit with us.
