Hi PH fam, our search impressions are through the roof but, in comparison, our CTR is super weak. What would you recommend doing to get that upward tick on click-throughs?

One idea that comes to mind - richer snippets for SERP. I just googled "leave management software" and between the two results below I would click on Zoho (the rating line definitely catches the eye with golden stars): 1.

@justana AFAIK google hasn't released data regarding rich snippets. But logic would suggest they aren't key to improving CTR IMO. The whole point of rich snippets is for Google to 'borrow' other people's content. Keeping them on the search engine and not having them click-thru. Seriously shady move on Google's part.

Google CTR all comes down to title and meta description. Copywriting. Second biggest mistake I see in marketing is letting your web dev write your title and meta description SERP copy. First biggest mistake is writing is yourself. I'm creating a simple tool to solve this issue. I'd love to have a PH'er beta test? PM me if you're interested. Position on page is the other big factor. But that is often determined, in part, by CTR.
