Most searches are on Google so we will be focusing on Google mainly in this series. Knowledge graphs will give an idea of the correct information, the people also ask will be for similar queries, and the top three organic results will be the preferred selection for location on Google.

Focusing on ranking, ensuring your content is clear and well organized for your users improves the likelihood that users will remain on your site rather than going back to look for a better answer for their result. This would be a part of on-page SEO where you have a keyword for what you are attempting to cover, alt and title tags as well as descriptions for your images, linking to similar articles on your site that may be useful.

    Great explanation! One question: You mention that the first 3 organic results get 70 % of clicks. Is this 70 % of all clicks among the organic results, or is it 70 % of all clicks, including the ads in the top and the knowledge graph? Thanks!

    What type of advertising is currently leading in terms of effectiveness?

  14. I usually avoid commenting on videos, but I just wanted to say — thank you. Excellent video, clear and concise, and was not obnoxiously click-baity etc. Typically when I search virtually anything on the internet, I'm met with hundreds of videos with ridiculous titles and thumbnails that make baby goats weep in distress.

    Solid information, great production, and excellent diction while speaking. I was able to understand everything despite having a nasty headcold, which really goes to show just how straightforward and clear the video was.

  15. Harald Joachi

    It would be interesting to know something about indexing of passing)
