Tips to Increase Click Through Rate (CTR) on Google Search Engine
Star Rating in Google Search
If you are one of the bloggers who write review articles or who review Webhosting or web apps, you can use Google Rich Snippet Star rating to make your review stand out. These star ratings work like the ranking of the product you review and it looks different. With Star rating, you can easily create review articles and even you can come forward in competitive keyword results. I use a WordPress plugin Author H Review developed by FamousBloggers.net. This allows us to easily add Star ratings to Google Search.
Along with the star rating, you can also add the Call to Action button at the end of the articles, this will help you to give more CTR to the product you are promoting. If you are a tech blogger or blogging in any niche and you review services, products, apps, mobile phones, then use this plugin and you will get good increment in Google blog CTR of your blog. This plugin for affiliate bloggers highly recommended is one of the plugins.
Remove date from Google SERP’s
The date is very useful for readers to know when the blog post was written and how new the article is. But if you have an old blog and do not have evergreen content, then you can get poor CTR due to the dates in Google Search. I mentioned the same in ShoutMeLoud's Google Panda recovery guide.
You can also create tweaks to show dates in posts. But hide it from Google Search. I use Thesis theme system to quickly remove the date from search engine results and this helps in getting more CTR for old posts. If you are noticing poor CTR in old posts, then my recommendation is that you remove the dates from Google SERP’s for your blog post and you will start to notice the difference.
Meta Description & Meta Title
It should have been the first tip here but being the oldest I put it here last. Google and most other search engines use your meta title and meta description to show information in Google search. Writing a meta title will not only improve CTR, but writing a detailed meta description will also give you better ranking with keywords.
You WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin You can use it or if your theme offers post SEO options, then you can also use it to write Meta post titles and descriptions which will help you to increase Google Search CTR.
