Do We Trust Google?

Why Do We Trust Google?

Do we trust Google? In other words are the Google rankings on the up and up? We’d never really considered anything otherwise until we saw an SEO article asking that very question. Just for the record and based on our experience we trust Google. But, in the SEO article there were some SEO experts who had interesting things to say about Google and Google rankings. One comment that stood out was the fact that Google is a private company and therefore it can do what it wants to do with it’s product and it’s rankings.

Do We Trust Google

On the other hand think about the trust Google has built with the public, who use Google 90% to search any topic they desire. And as for plumbers , who are ranked on Google, there is a trust by the public to use Google to search for a plumber. Google would seem to have a much higher trust factor than say, Yelp. We only use Yelp as an example because they are a well known messenger for bad reviews that many merchants find problematic. But, let’s concentrate on Google here because it’s the most used search method for the public when ready-to-buy customers search for a plumber.

Be #1 on Google & Google Maps

When you’re #1 on Google and Google Maps you’ll get over 50% of all the phone calls from ready-to-buy customers searching for a plumber in your town and service area. We’ve shown how we arrived at this percentage in a previous blog. When you work with SEO Plumber Pro this adds up to an ROI of well over 1000%. Ready-to-buy customers trust Google. Maybe they see Google as a trusted third party review site. Above all, Google doesn’t seem to have many detractors when it comes to Google rankings. So, being #1 on Google holds a prestige with the public. It also holds profits for plumbers who are #1 on Google and Google Maps.

Plumbers Don’t Care About Click Throughs

Plumbers Don’t Care About Click-Throughs

Plumbers don’t care about click-throughs.  Why should they?  What plumbers care about is how often the phone is ringing with ready-to-buy plumbing customers.   SEO Plumber Pro doesn’t care about click-through rates, either.  SEO Plumber Pro, like you, cares most about how often you phone is ringing with ready-to-buy plumbing customers.  Here’s why.  Click-through rates measure how many people click-through to your website.   This is the story of being on page one for Google searches and making your phone ring.  There is a difference.

What Being #1 on Page One Means to Your Plumbing Company

Google searches for “plumber, your town” are the fastest way to get your phone to ring if you are #1 on page one.  When somebody is searching for “plumber, your town” they are looking for your help with a plumbing problem or challenge.  If you are #1 on page one for Google searches for “plumber, your town” you will get 50% of all the ready-to-buy plumbing customers looking for a plumber in your town calling you.  How do you get that 50% market share?  You must be #1 on Google.  The click-through rate for #1 is 33%.  That’s 3 times higher than the 11% click-through rate for being #2 on page one.  But, 33% going to your website is only a part of the 50% of ready-to-buy plumbing customers.  Here’s why.

Many Ready-To-Buy Plumbing Customers Call Without Going to Your Website

When ready-to-buy plumbing customers find you at #1 on page one they see your phone number in your listing.  Instead of going to your website they just pick up the phone and call you from your listing.  We estimate about half will call instead of going to your website.  That’s about 17%.  The total would be 50% of the ready-to-buy plumbing customers contacting you from being #1 on page one.

Watch this video and listen to one of our clients tell you what he got from being #1 on page one of Google.  He never mentions click-through rates.

Google Page One Google Search Ranking

Page one on Google

Page One on Google

Tons of plumber SEO companies claim they can get local businesses on “page one on Google” for local searches.  That sounds great!  But, ask a business owner what that will do for his company and it gets a little dicey.  So, being on “page one on Google” for local searches will give you better exposure and visibility than being on page two.  But, hardly anyone goes to page two in a local search.  That’s just a fact.  Less than 10% on website click-throughs come from page two on Google.

So, what is so special about “page one on Google?”  Rankings spot #1 is extremely special.  Approximately 35% of visitors to a SERP (search engine results page) click on the #1 ranked business in a local business niche search.  The #2 spot gets about 15% of the website click-throughs.  Spot #3 gets about 10%.  Spot #4 gets around 8%.  And spot #5 get about 5%.  The #6 through #10 spots get less than 3-4% each.  So, just being on “page one on Google” is a myth of success unless you’re #1.

Google Maps

You can see that the true value of “page one Google” is being #1 on “page one Google.”  The other important ranking that most SEO companies rarely mention is Google Maps.  For every competitive local search Google shows a Google Map with anywhere from two to seven business listings.  This critical because people like to see locations of businesses in reference to where they may reside.  This tells a search visitor what company is close to home or how far they may have to travel to get to the business they choose.

Google Search Domination

SEO Plumber Pro specializes in local Google search domination.  We have been able to achieve #1 rankings for our local plumbing clients in the organic search rankings and Google Maps.  This can yield over 50% of the leads from a local search for a main keyword in your business niche.  So, this has lead to an ROI of 500% or more for our clients.
