    Absolutely not, the person who told you that is a complete idiot. Only backlinks and content will contribute to your search engine position.

    Some people argue that Alexa ranking can help with SEO, however its quite easy to get a good alexa ranking with fake traffic so I doubt that it holds much weight with search engine ranking.

    What I said before was incorrect, there are a few other factors for SEO such as the domain of the site and file names but sending fake traffic definitely will not help.
