Not all searches are created equal — when it comes to click-through rate CTR , that is.

A new study from Seige Media uncovers the top 42 keyword terms, along with their average CTRs.

This exercise examined the top 50 keyword stems to find what terms helped spur clicks and, more importantly, what terms didn t.

A variety of these terms with the worst click-through rates are geared toward knowledge graph answers like translation, population, definition which happen to be the number 1, 2 and 3 least-clicked terms across the board .

That is to to be expected for many of these terms, as Google is trying to specifically answer questions directly.

Other searches with low CTR included terms that appear to fulfill the need for information in direction or review form.
