Google is Australia’s most popular search engine. It has become critical to have top website submissions. In the period 2007-2008, 87.81% of all searches conducted in Australia were done via Google. Year upon year Google continues to increase its market dominance, achieving 11.79% growth in this period over the previous year (Hitwise, 2008). Google is the world’s most powerful search engine, attracting almost nine out of ten searches conducted overall. Search engines remain the primary way that internet users navigate to key industry categories and find information regarding the products and services they buy.
Research, dedicated to the study of the behavior of search engine users, has proven that the top three listings in organic website submissions generate the most traffic. This is due to the following reasons:
- The eye naturally reads left to right, top of page to bottom of page. This instinct is no different for someone reading top website submissions to someone reading a newspaper or novel.
- Top website submissions are the most visible to the search engine user.
- The search engine user considers the top website submissions to be the most relevant to their search, then the second search result to be the second most relevant, the third to be the next most relevant, and so forth. The chance of a search engine user trusting a result decreases dramatically with website submissions down the page.
- The top three website submissions in results generated by the search engine are the most convenient and the easiest for the user to access. Top website submissions mean minimal effort for the search engine user.
It is also highly unlikely that the user will proceed beyond the first page website submissions in the results. This is why it is so critical you have high website submissions and can be easily found at the top of the first page in Google, Australia’s most popular search engine.
In an age where search engines have become one of the most powerful mediums for information dispersion, a critical need for top website submissions has arisen. Companies that incorporate a Search Engine Marketing focus into their media mix can have greater success across their entire marketing strategy. This is because effective website submissions can be felt across all other mediums, perhaps even leading to the ultimate success of other marketing methods. For example: A consumer sees a company’s brand on an alternate campaign, such as a billboard or TV advertisement. This stimulates their interest in the company’s product. The consumer will then go on to search for the product category in Google. At this stage, their trust in the brand is likely to be strengthened if they in turn find it in top website submissions. They then click-through to the website since their brand recall is heightened by multiple brand interactions. Hence, the advertisement has assisted the search engine campaign and the search engine campaign has assisted to further the success of the advertisement.
