  1. Keyword SEO Difficulty is calculated from Site’s Position Strength and shows how difficult it is to rank for a specific keyword in Google’s organic search results. It runs on a scale from 1 to 100. The higher the number, the more difficult it is to rank for that keyword.

  2. Average click-through rate (CTR) - is a ratio of people who click on a specific link to the number of people who viewed that site. Knowing CTR will help you to determine the quality of the keywords you use, meta tags, positioning, and imagery. SERP Features might have an influence on this rate as well.
