Notes de l'éditeur

  • How does the CTR change for branded vs. non-branded keywords?
  • For this study we have defined brand searches as searches that contain the entire domain name of the website in the query, with all the spaces and dashes removed.

    For branded searches the first result is almost always associated with the brand’s website, which makes it the obvious choice for most users and very hard to miss. This would justify the big CTR difference between the first position and the rest of the SERP.
    This big difference in CTR may also be affected by the fact that brand searches usually display a pack of 6 site links just below the first result, making it more prominent in the search results.
  • How does the CTR change for searches with different intents?

    It is believed that people who search for keywords with high commercial intent (“buy 4k LCD TV”) are more likely to click on the first results than people who perform basic informational searches (“where is the nearest thai restaurant”).
  • This chart reveals that people tend to click more on the first results when their search has some kind of intent. So we wanted to dig deeper and see which of the search intents affect the CTR and how.
  • Google is getting better and better at figuring out search intent. Nowadays, many of the search results contain instant answers so people no longer need to click on a website to find out what they’re looking for. The answer is already there.
    That may be the reason why the CTR curve is so flat for Location search results.
    Commercial intent searches usually trigger ads that have colorful pictures of the products we search. It’s usually a lot more tempting to click on these pictures than on the first organic results.
  • What is the CTR for long tail keyword searches?

    There is a popular belief that since long tail keywords are more descriptive, people tend to click more on the first results when searching for them.
  • The collected data shows that the longer the query, the higher the organic CTR is for all SERPs, except for the first position. This might be because of the big CTR we have seen for branded searches in the first position.
  • Interestingly, for one word queries in the US, the first position gets the highest CTR, almost double the
    number of clicks than for the other types of queries. Do most brands in US have their name made of just
    one word?
  • Remember our goal for this study?
