In this blog, I will tell you how to increase google search CTR.
Google Search is just a search and finds a system for a simple Google, but as a Blogger and webmasters, we should use the latest search engine ranking factors to get more CTR and top rankings.

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 show your review separately. These star ratings work as a ranking of the product you’re reviewing and look different. With Star Rating you can easily create review articles and even you can come forward in competitive keyword results as well. I use a WordPress plugin Author H Review which has been developed by FamousBloggers.net. It lets us easily add star ratings to Google Search.
With the Star rating, you can also add Call to Action button at the end of the article. This will help you deliver more CTR to the product you are promoting. If you are a tech blogger or blogging in any niche and you review services, product, then use this plugin. You will find good growth in your blog’s Google Search CTR.
Delete date from Google SERP’s
The date for readers is very useful to know when the post was written and how recent the article is. But if you have an old blog and you do not have evergreen content then you can get a poor CTR due to dates in Google Search. I have mentioned this in Unifreed’s Google Panda Recovery guide too. It will help you increase Google Search CTR.
You can also create tweaks to show date in posts. But hide it from Google Search. I use the Thesis theme system to quickly remove the date from search engine results. It helps in getting more CTR for older posts. If you are doing poor CTR notice in old posts, then my recommendation is that you remove dates from Google SERP’s for your blog post. And you will start doing a different notice. It helps you to
Meta Description & Meta Title
It should have been the first tip here but due to being the oldest I kept it in the last. Search Engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo use your website meta title and description to show relevant information in google searches. Writing Meta title and meta description is really important for improving CTR and get a better ranking in a search engine result pages with the keywords.
You can use the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin. If your theme post offers SEO options, you can also use it in writing Meta post titles and description. It will help you increase Google Search CTR.
Some other factors help to maximize Google search CTR like G+ likes or video thumbnails and also instant previews. But for now, if you implement the latest SEO techniques above, then you are improving the ways that Google search has listings of your blog posts.
