    Some of my sites ranking only with visits from YT. They are totally empty sites too mostly. Only 1 page. My bounce rate is also good.

    Have you ever ranked some keywords only with visits and good bounce rate?

    If those visits generate some social signal then yes. Make sure you have a +1 button and FB like. As your real human traffic improves and generates +1's and other social signals, this will help your organic rank too.

    Just having a bunch of people pass by the site probably won't do much.

    I want to test something. I make new websites in games niche. Take low/medium keywords and try to rank them with social signals, visits from youtube and good bounce rate. I will report my results here.

    How is your bounce rate good with only one page?

    Because people spend time on my website. They won't leave instantly, because they find what they are looking for....average visit duration is almost 3 minutes per session.

    Is it a low competition niche and your on page SEO is optimized?

    I have a website no links no social media
    It got ranked to #6 automatically been there for over 3 years. Content of the website is not that great it is unique hand written.

    Most Ironically the website is ranked for a low comp blackhat niche.
