You're going to enjoy it. Check it out. All right, so SEO, here's what's happening with SEO right now. If you think about Google, because Google is the largest, they take on the lion's share of the traffic in the U S and a lot of countries around the world. The problem with this is they're a publicly traded company. Now their incentives are to make more money for their shareholders. Now it's no longer just don't be evil, which was their model in the past. They actually took that off of kind of their, their mission statement or part of their mission and values.
So you think about it now, there's only so much space. There's only so much real estate and on a search result page. So it used to be in the past, you know their ads. I remember in high school when, when they started, um, Google ad words, um, the, there was only like one snippet and as crystal clear that it was an ad, right? And now over over the years, now it's becoming less and less apparent that it's an ad, right? It used to be highlighted in yellow. It was like crystal clear as an ad and there's only like one or two of them right now you might see like four or five ads at the very top and you see more ads at the bottom because Google is making a less apparent than their ads and they're putting more ads on the, on the on search engine result pages, they're making more money, they're incentivized to make money, which means the organic results, the SEO results, those are getting pinched down a little bit, right?
So what used to be at the very top above the fold that would get like the lion's share of the clicks. Now it's getting pushed down so much that you know these to say like maybe the number one result in SEO might get 25 to 40 to 50% of, of the clicks. Now it's like, you know, it might go down to like 10% or so. There's a clip I'm going to show you in a little bit where, uh, when I spoke at the marketing school live conference, I'm, I actually share some data, uh, from, from rand Fishkin, from spark Toro, the search result pages, they're getting more and more consolidated as become a tougher and tougher to, um, to make SEO work.
