Being Google’s No.1 Pal

Why Your Business Needs To Be On Google’s First Page

A few years back, there was a discussion as to whether or not phone books still had a purpose in our modern world of constant connectivity. After some debate, it was decided that phone books would continue to be delivered door-to-door… for now.

But the reality has indeed changed. Your customers will, over 80% of the time, opt for a Google search as their means of finding local businesses.

Getting on Google

Having an online presence is essential in promoting your business and connecting with your potential clients. Moreover, it is critical to your website’s traffic — and thus to your business’s online visibility — that you can be found on Google.

Or, more specifically, on the first page of Google.
Let’s look at the numbers:

  • 90% of people will click on the organic listings on the first page.
  • But less than 10% of people will advance to Page 2.
  • In fact, Page 2 drives only about 5% of incoming Google traffic, and Page 3 sees little more than 1%.

In other words, Page 1 is where the magic happens. The top 3 results capture 61% of clicks, while the rest hold their own as viable options for your online searchers. If your business is not amongst these immediate results, your customers simply may not be willing or able to find you online.
