Hello, I want to know more traffic to your sites will increase Google rankings or not? Sites getting more traffic always are getting top search rankings and vise versa.

Of course traffic influences your rankings. That's why some affiliate marketers are able to make the bulk of their money through product launches and stuff. If you're one of the first people to post about something, you stand to get the bulk of the traffic -- unless a high-authority site post shortly after you do. You'll still end up on the first page, though.

This is completely wrong. Traffic does not impact rankings. Affiliate marketer or not.

Why you think web traffic does not impact rankings? because its not in 200 ranking factors?

Why would it? I can generate tons and tons of visitors through Facebook and Twitter. I could even do it through total click bait bullshit that has nothing to do with my webpage. Why would that mean I should rank any better for a specific search term? It's just stupid to think that traffic increases rankings.

Its stupid to give your example by traffic from social networks like Facebook or Twitter, many websites get huge traffic from search engines without using social networks, could say they get 90% traffic from search and 10% direct traffic then how? even they didn't promote their sites on social media to get traffic. Even one of my sites didn't use social networks to get traffic and its getting 100% from organic traffic.

Of course there are sites that get tons of traffic from search. And what does getting 90% of traffic from search have to do with what we are talking about?

The question was does getting more traffic increase a site's rankings. The answer is no.

Click through rate and traffic obviously influences your rankings. If your click through rate is higher then definitely will increase Google rankings serp.

No, how much traffic a website gets, does NOT influence ranking.

If it did, everyone would be on Fiverr, buying fake traffic... or selling it for "top rankings" lol.

That's why some marketers are able to make the bulk of their money through product launches and stuff.
Some marketers make the bulk of their money through product launches because they have an email list, or affiliates that have an email list. It has nothing to do with ranking in Google though. In fact, I've seen some marketers that have garbage SEO but they still make money because SEO is not part of their traffic strategy.

Google will not measure your site traffic as a ranking factor. So, it is definitely a misconception among users that increase in traffic will increase your ranking. Your ranking depends on the on page and off page SEO techniques you have used. It will also count the backlinks i.e. how much authority sites get you backlinks. Also make sure that you have fresh and decent content as well.

Hello,

The traffic you will have on your website is the result of your SEO campaign. You have to optimize your website (On Page SEO) and get quality backlinks (Off Page SEO) if you want to increase your rankings in Google and to get more traffic.
But the CTR is one of the factors which use Google, so you have to optimize your Title and Description to incitate visitors to choose your website.

In my view point it does work when you have lots of quality backlinks not traffic. quality backlinks before traffic
there are many sites with huge traffic but no pagerank

This is only a guess hope someone gives a perfect answer

PageRank has nothing to do with this conversation and you actually have NO IDEA what the PageRank is for any page on the internet right now. Google does not share that data publicly and they haven't for about 3 years now.

Actually, buying loads of traffic from different sources over a long period of time can reduce your Alexa rating as well increase your other stats too which in turn can add value to your site.

But only from the perspective of a buyer if you're selling your site and even then you'd have to be pretty naive.

But it doesn't matter how much traffic is flowing into your site or from where it comes from. Even if it comes from Forbes or CNN example.

It wont increase your ranking in Google one iota. For that you need backlinks simple as that.

PageRank is a measure of the quality of incoming links.

However, Google stopped sharing PageRank data with the public in December of 2013, and even that data was fairly old. The PR you see in toolbars is not the actual PageRank of a webpage. It's data that is almost 3 years old now.

Do you ever feel like a parrot repeating yourself over and over again SEOPub? :)

I said do you ever feel like a parrot repeating yourself over and over again SEOPub? :)

G should have really done more to advertise their PR switch off.

It might have saved many of us a lot of time!

No! traffic won't increase your page's ranking in Google. How will you get that traffic to increase ranking with while you're page isn't ranked well? :D You must have ranked in 1st page for at least one keywords in order to get some visitors. Do you get that traffic from Traffic Exchanges? If yes, you are doing WRONG, leave them before your Alexa rank is killed! Alexa analysis your website's traffic to see how much quality traffic it is receiving, how will your site receive traffic with no ranking?? There are three solutions on this: 1-Advertise (Spend thousands to just get more traffic :lol: ) 2-Buy traffic (from a trusted service).
What did you say? "Sites getting more traffic always are getting top search rankings"? This isn't true! They are getting traffic why they are ranking high!

Hi there

Great question

I would say yes and no.

Yes because if the traffic is coming from good locations with high DA (social media sites) etc that is going to help your rank as it shows Search engines that your site is popular and most importantly because you will get more interaction and shares etc.. However this is more based on backlinks instead of simply traffic numbers. If visitors are simple 'bouncing' off your site, I doubt it has any effect at all. Clicking and exiting immediately may not really help your rank.

That is my view.

Hello there
The main purpose of your website is to get traffic and get visible on search engines.page rank got nothing to do with that and as far as i know google have stopped updating page rank from the past 3 years . your traffic solely depends on the number of good backlinks you have .Agreed with vishwa when he said that the traffic depends upon the on and off page you have used.
The sites which gets lots of traffic are the ones who follow the ethical way of link building .
