  7. 7. Why You Should Care About SEO? As can be clearly seen the first position gets about 42% of the click-throughs. Position 2 receives a staggering 70% less click-throughs and only receives roughly 12% of all traffic. Position 3 receives only 8% and thereby drops about 28% compared to position 2. The rest of the positions show a gradual decrease in click-through percentage, whilst the bottom position generates more traffic than position 9.
