    Hey after some time I managed to get to #10 in the SERPS. Now I wonder how to climb the rankings on the first page. I heard that backlinks are the most important from #11 - #XY but to get to #1 CTR is more important.

    One page ranks for #2 in SERPS for my keyword that only has 250 words on it.
    What other factors are there that can be improved to get to the top?

    Thanks for any direction

    If you can get the backlink profile of #1, then try to replicate it that'd be great.
    Improve onpage seo like keyword density, images, link to videos if you can, etc

    Algo? Let's play with you.
    In some keywords, going from #10 to #1 is harder than going from #100 to #10 ;)
    Start/Keep building backlinks and you will be fine, don't worry about CTR or anything yet.
    If there is featured snippets for your keyword, once you are hitting top 5 run a Google search about how to rank Featured Snippets, there are some basics steps to follow - do it and you will be fine.

    Adding proper quality content and building high quality backlinks relevant o your niche, guest posting. These are the common factors to rank well.

    Analyze the top 5 rank sites. Find out the strategies of their techniques in SEO. It is important to know the power of the competitor to beat them.

    You have to use the social media power as well. Try to get too many shares from social media.

    Make a video about your site. Spread it through youtube.

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Add more value for users and optimized content to the page your ranking #10. Then send some high quality/authority links.

    Find a way to boost your CTR, ie better CTA in Title tags or meta description, as well as rich snippets by using schema or search console data highlighter.

    Meh, I've tested a ton of click through rate stuff. From micro-workers to stupid shit sold on the open market, to my own custom software. I see no evidence of CTR being a ranking signal. There's also been zero case studies that convince me otherwise.

    Here is what I can tell you. On-page is "Huuuuge". Measuring up your competition is one of the first things I do. This was one of the last post I wrote on my blog before I got too busy to write anymore, but it's one of my favorite tools (TF*IDF Article). Basic audit tools work as well (Screaming Frog). Or shit, just do an eye test. If you look at a lot of top ten SERPs, it's pretty easy to identify patterns.

    Next thing I look at is competition and average time in the top positions. Are they big brands? Have they been there for a while?

    Getting to #1....."The Great White Buffalo".

    How does your onpage compare with the top 3? Also, trace their strongest links and replicate them.

    It is not different actually.

    It all comes down to 4 things:

    1. Solid on-page
    2. Power of the backlinks you build
    3. Anchor text selection (are you using the ratio that works for your search term?)
    4. Health of money site and backlink sites

    Things like CTR, social, user engagement etc. that were mentioned above are all secondary.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    Nah, but there is plenty of data out there (conflicting). I'm not a big social signals guy, but I do believe they should be part of your overall marketing plan. Real social signals of course:)

    Keep on building quality backlinks until you reach top 1 position.But keep a check on your competitors ,they may do negative seo.
