Study Shows Organic Drives 51% of Traffic Social Only 5%

For many of our clients social media has been very frustrating for them, mostly because it is extremely over hyped.  Sure if you own a restaurant or club social media is where the action is, but for a business service non existent.  A recent study below will shed some light on the break down of website traffic sources.

A new study completed by BrightEdge claims that 51% of all  search  traffic is coming from organic search results and that social only represents a small percentage of 5%.

According to the study organic traffic represented 73% of all business services traffic! We were very surprised to see pay per click coming in at only 10%.  The fact still  remains that consumers feel more confident with organic listings as they represent companies that have been in business for a while and have a good reputation.  For many it is an endorsement by Google.
