    Great info that has a lot of numbers. So do you have a better chance of getting your article viewed at Bing?

    Yes i agree with you most of the users follow only top links displayed on google’s serp , so we need to work more to get our website listed in top positions for some target keywords which helps a lot.

    These stats really differ with Google. Top ~ 35 % 2nd ~ 20% 3rd ~ 15% and so on.

    Meh, what can you do with this? Would be much more interesting to see results for non-branded searches. If a user types in a brand name, they are essentially navigating, not searching.

    Position bias and the fact people are generally unwilling to “dig” has been known for quite some time. Dynamic page sizing is an interesting approach, however, what’s really needed is dynamic ranking. The combination of people not willing to go beyond page one and search engines inability to unambiguously determine intent with just a few keywords means that something automated is needed to help people find the relevant links that may otherwise remain buried.

    What’s the source of the Google numbers? I suspect these are not FIRST SERP, but rather averaging click-through rate for position 1 for a query, including clicks AFTER a back button.
