Some quick, rough numbers about google search results:

  • No. 1 Position in Google Gets 33% of Search Traffic
  • Top 5 search results get 75% of clicks
  • 90% of search traffic comes from page 1 of search results

What we can take away from these stats is this: The focus of organic SEO should be
A. to get to page 1 of google results for desired keywords
B. to find the keywords with the highest chance of getting you to page one
C. once on page one, how to optimize further to get to the top 5 results.
