  1. Great explanation! One question: You mention that the first 3 organic results get 70 % of clicks. Is this 70 % of all clicks among the organic results, or is it 70 % of all clicks, including the ads in the top and the knowledge graph? Thanks!

    1. Unless the information has changed recently, this is excluding the knowledge graph and ads :)

    2. @WPBeginner – WordPress Tutorials Thanks a lot. It would be super interesting to how the percentage of clicks each item on the page gets. Maybe the knowledge graph gets 1 %, maybe 99 % of all clicks. Do you know? Happy New Year!

  2. the way you explain so beautiful I don’t have no other choice but to understand… i wish you were my ESL teacher when I started school in USA. I will have been saving a lot of time because I don’t have to keep repeating my self 3 or 4 times to communicate with people

  3. We have clients still using WordPress so it’s great to brush back up on SEO/WordPress. Great video! It’s much appreciated 😀

    1. If it is not on your site, you wouldn’t normally have the ability to remove comments and it would strongly depend on the content of the comment instead of it being for or against your opinion.

      The most common being if you think it is spam then you normally want to remove it to protect your users.

  4. Thank you. I literally watched tons of videos and this is my first time understanding the concept
