Webmasters and SEOs always try their best to get the top rank for their sites and they continue until they get it and try all old and advanced techniques to get it and I am also not an exception.

My question is that is having your site on top rank on major search engines is really best thing in SEO, does a top rank site always have the highest traffic?

I think its not true as often I have seen people prefer to go throgh sites that are ranked at two or three or fourth rank and only a few directly go to the site ranked at top.

I also often avoid site at the top and click on 2 or 3 ranked site for my query...........So I think having a second or third rank is better than having top rank. What do you think? I just want to know your views about it.

Thanks.........

That's the really good point. I think what is much more important is to be in first 5 of SERP results. Thinking about how I look for things in Google I realised that wheter I look for some information or seek products/services I open first 5-7 relevant search results simultanously and check which of these would suit me best.

The bottom line is that:

1. Ranking 1'st is not such a difference comparing to next few positions.

2. Making it for the first or fifth position requires virtually the same resources (time, money, etc.)

3. Sheer marketing skills or most relevant content is important in terms of traffic and conversion.

if you're ranking first for one search, chances are you are ranking in the top five for similar searches..

also if you're ranking first, chances are you are ranking in the top five in most search engines..

being first doesn't guarantee the most clicks/conversions but it does emphasise your presence amongst your competition..

people EXPECT search engines to list the most relevant result at the top (although this isn't always the case) having your site top will atleast make the searcher think your site is more important, if only slightly

the answer is yes since users tend to click the site that tops the SERP's

One of the most important reasons for trying to get the websites to the top of the search engines is for having natural web traffic and then the webmaster can concentrate on generating income from the sites.

Naturally, if you need to have a lot, do 10 web sites and occupy all TOP10.

Having a top rank site doesn't really mean that your site will gain the highest traffic. I think the main reason why many sites are competing for the higher ranking position in SERP is because they want to increase their chances to be searched and visited naturally by internet users.

If its about Organic listings, #1 position is always better, even on a long tail keyword/phrase. If you are in first five results, you can surely expect a good traffic for your websites.

And, for getting traffic, there are many other ways too.

I am in the 2nd postion for Holland MI Real Estate and Holland Michigan Real Estate. I would like to be first, but if the traffic is similar I am happy with that. I think if you are top 4 where the people don't have to scroll down to see more results you are sitting good.

More than no 1 it is getting a position on a first page in search engine matters.

Getting a position in top 10 make sure that visitors will visit your site
