    Does anybody have any facts and figures about the percentage
    of page traffic that a triggered 7-pack entry will get?

    Adwords and SERP response rates are well discussed but
    have not found any FACTS about actual traffic to a 7-pack entry.

    Your data may not be perfect but as Erasmus said, "in the land of the
    blind, the one eyed man is king"

    I have heard that the CTR for a 7 pack is extremely high and you can expect a lot of traffic. Say if there are 100 searches for your keyword everyday you can expect anywhere around 50-60 clicks to your website . Hope this helps.

    It would be great if there was a way to see whether the traffic came from the 7 box or the organic listings. I have a site that is #1 for both and can't ever tell where business flows from...If anyone has suggestions to track this, I'd love to know. I've had the same question - what gets more hits: organic or the 7 pack? So far, I don't have any good answers...

    I have read about getting the 7box which used to be the 10box before... any tips on getting in the 7 box top position when the competition isnt that bad? i have done as much as i can... i heard the biggest part to get in there is the reviews is that true? but now its hard to write reviews with different gmails since google has the sms verification

    Check the marketing sherpa studies, or look up info on the Golden Triangle of search. The CTR will be relevant for the 7Box and since they tend to dominate that screen space.
