The iron law of Google local search (or why second page doesn’t cut it).

Most business owners are too busy to take note of various studies around search engine rankings.

But the one takeaway finding from these studies that no small business can afford to miss is just how a massive 73 per cent of all clicks go to those sites or businesses on the first page of results for any search term and almost all of these go to the top five slots.

The other thing to remember is there is an exponential decline in the number of click from the first spot to the second and so on. To strip the technicality out of this, it simply means that second spot gets roughly half the clicks that top spot and third spot gets half as much again.

In real terms, what this means is if you are languishing on the second page and wondering why the phone is not ringing or customers aren’t hitting your site or coming, it is likely that your profile on Google search is simply not strong enough.
