    i was wondering who gets better conversion rate the one that ranks first second or third on google? conversion on sales or adclicks.

    and if you amend edit a hub does it effect its age as a page? and have an effect on its ranking just because its counted as a new page?

    and one more smile

    if you edit a hub and you get it wrong if you put it back how it was will it go in the same rank

      First - Depends who clicks. Of course usually the more traffic = the more clicks, but this isn't always true. But if the same type of searchers are visiting all the top pages, there should be about an equal click % based on traffic.

      Second - Editing a hub won't effect it's age. If you UNPUBLISH the hub, that will completely reset the age however.

      Third - What do you mean by get it wrong? Anything you put in a hub can be changed whenever you wish, EXCEPT for the URL. Hubs get crawled pretty regularly (Google likes this site), so it may take a day or two or up to two weeks sometimes to get re-indexed with the amendments.

          thanks for the quick reply

          ranking first will give you more traffic and more chance to get clicks but i also think that not many people buy on first thing they read ... do you think second or third get better conversion rate

          so if you edit hubs age want be effect, thanks )

          if I get it wrong , i try to rank first and I fail and go 10th can i put everything how it was and go back where i was second third?!

            Well there are statistics saying that a large amount of people click the first link first, but a lot of people click the second and third first as well. So it may well be that person's first page on the subject.

            Yes you can go and change things back but it may take a few days minimum to take effect.

    The number one position gets about 40 to 50 percent of the clicks

    number two position gets about 20 to 30 percent of the clicks

    Number one is always the target.
