The Value of Being Number 1 on Google

It’s certainly common knowledge that a high Google ranking is desirable for your business. But the impact on traffic to your site, and ultimately to your store, are perhaps more dramatic than you knew.

According to a recent study by the online advertising network, Chitika, the top ranking spot on a Google search receives 33% of all traffic. The second spot garners 18%. The third gets around 11% and it drops off drastically after that. The study was conducted using tens of millions of online ad impressions resulting from Google searches.

Achieving a high ranking on Google is only possible through Search Engine Optimization (SEO). A fundamental first step in achieving the most effective SEO possible is ensuring that your web and mobile site platform inherently and seamlessly integrates with Google’s powerful ranking and analytical infrastructure.

Due to it’s robust features, many top brands, including Time Magazine, Google, Facebook, Sony, Disney, LinkedIn, The New York Times, CNN, Ebay and many more utilize WordPress for this purpose, as does Guru Marketing.

Another key element to maximizing your SEO is to generate routine site activity by integrating blogging, video marketing, social media posting, internet yellow page listings, e-newsletters, Google Maps and other routine input.
