    Two things:

    First these results are not impressive at all. They could very well be explained by normal fluctuations and even then a maximum position of #28 is nothing to talk home about AT ALL.

    Second, and more importantly, these CTR manipulation services simply don't work. Google has very sophisticated click fraud detection techniques and from my own thorough experience and others all these services have failed. I bet a lot of ignorant people will for this worthless case study though.

    First off the results are not there to impress anyone but to show that it DOES effect the rankings. It could be that push it needs to rank some keywords 1st place when you already have applied all the other ranking methods, that would be impressive huh?

    Secondly there are many CTR manipulation services and this is the only one I know of sophisticated enough to simulate a real visitor. If you don't set it up correctly, your rankings can decrease and that's probably what happened in your case. Also I have stopped sending the simulated traffic for over a month now and all the rankings clearly dropped (you will see that in this case study update).

    Ranking in the Youtube search results is even easier and quicker and it's the best kind of simulated views you can get. I noticed keywords jumping to 1st spot within a day. For both websites and videos you can set the traffic country source, view duration, amount of views, number of pages, direct/organic/referral traffic etc. which are all ranking signals.

    Sorry if I missed it (just skimmed through) but this looks like promotion for MW or PandaBot, I don't see that you ranked any site.

    Where are you ranking as of today?

    Not putting you down but I don't feel it is much of a case study yet.

    Yes it "could be" if you ignore all the facts and countless experiments done showing it doesn't work. Do you seriously think you're the first one trying this? There are discussions on non-public advanced SEO forums of people who tried every one of these services and without exception they all (yes Pandabot as well) failed. Not sure if you really believe this or are just a charlatan like Matthew who will write anything as long as he can put an affiliate link in it, but your case study doesn't prove a damn thing.

    Do you even realize what you'r saying here? If it was so sophisticated the owners could literally make millions upon millions by click frauding Adsense or similar advertisement networks. Instead of becoming millionaires they're selling it to the gullible. Sigh!

    I did a little research on this actually because I was curious. Although I have no doubt this could rank something.... I have my doubts you ranked that 60k keyword purely with this method.
