Google has taken another step by reducing the number of results shown on the first page for certain key terms, the original 10 results have been reduced to 7 with the top result showing multiple internal links.
A very smart move by Google when it comes to quality and would certainly increase the CTR (Click Through Rate) of the top ranking domain. The websites ranking on top have a better chance of getting more visitors than the ones ranking on the bottom, with the competition reduced to 7 results, without the 8,9 & 10th positions showing up.
This shows that Google is getting more & more confident when it comes to ranking a website on the top positions. Looks like BIG G is going hard at the poor quality websites. Genuine SEO’s will find this a very good opportunity in increase their CTR and reduce the bounce rate.
