This article will be useful for product managers, marketers and all those who are interested in knowing the probabilities of transitions by position depending on the place in the organic search results Google and Yandex. It will contain several facts, figures, links and conclusions that I made for myself, analyzing this issue.

1 position - 35%
2 position - 17%
3 position - 10%

Slightly more expanded:

Fact:
The closer the search result in search engines to the top line, the more likely it is that the user will follow the link to its source. But not everyone knows how high you need to be in order for the ratio of clicks to transitions to be relevant. And is it good enough to have say your show on page 2 of the issue.

In order to measure “sufficiency”, it is necessary to calculate for each place in the issuance OCTR (Organic Click-Through Rate) - the result of a formula that reflects the percentage of clicks (clicks on the source link) of users after they saw the organicissuance upon request. Then compare the metrics for all positions in the search results. People from Advanced Web Ranking are doing just that, collecting monthly information on millions of keywords and tens of thousands of sites, and then openly publishing the findings of their observations.
