Mindshare Launch New SEO Research with Nielsen
Google Organic Click Through Rate Research
The SEO team at Mindshare recently noticed a shortage of robust natural search marketing data. To remedy this, we have been working with Nielsen on an industry first research project.
Our research focuses on understanding the organic search audience and their behaviours aiming to gain an insight into the use of search engines. To achieve this goal we analysed the click-through behaviour of natural search results on google.co.uk - the UK's market leader. During research we looked at:
- The use of Google and its search verticals
- Search engine user search habits
- The click-through rate for natural search and how this varies according to the vertical
If you would like to find out more about our research areas, or to see the complete research please contact the SEO team. Below is a sneak peek at some of our findings on the average organic CTR for Google UK by keyword type. 48% of click-throughs occur on the first position in organic search:
