    Hi everyone,

    Just did some KW deep research and im surprised about how SEMRush seems to overestimate the actual traffic one will get being pos 1 on a KW.

    On my examples ( sport niche ) I systematically had 62.1% of monthly volume that would go to website in pos 1, for any KW.

    I think I had read a study from moz saying that you actually get in average ~33% of the traffic volume where you're pos 1 for a KW ( Yet it's average so for some people it will be 50/60% and some other 20% ... )

    Thanks to all of you for any help,

    Still learning through all the nice & interesting post of this forum.

    That is entirely possible depending upon the keyword.

    Nike's #1 spot probably gets 65% of clicks for the term "nike" for instance.

    I dont think SEMRush is all that accurate, at least I have not found it to be particularly for what my projects.

    each niche have their own %, like some niche people even go to 2nd page, so estimated traffic from search metrics, sem rush is different.

    But thing is you get idea of traffic, i own sites there semrush say 45k monthly traffic, but i am getting around 100k plus.

    another site semrush say 30k, i am getting 12k . :)
