    I saw Mathew Woodward did a review on panda bot saying it gave him good rankings however (no offence meant here Matt) I'm not sure I trust what all these internet marketing gurus are preaching. Every review they do seems to end up with the product being great and you should buy it....

    Panda bot basically uses other peoples computers to search for terms then click on your websites and increase your CTR and lower your bounce rate. In theory it sounds great, but my website is a long term project and I don't want Google to waste it. I'm thinking they might be suspicious if they only see visits to it from what ever internal browser Panda bot uses?

    Anyone used this product before? If so how'd it go? :)

    I'm curious about this too.. Panda bot is free and I've been running it today and so far have gotten no traffic at all. They say you need to build up time credits by keeping the app running constantly and eventually you'll get some clicks, but so far I've got nothing. I'm not sure how long this will take, it sucks balls cause I've been running this shit for hours and people have been getting helped out with clicks from that, yet I've gotten nothing in return as of yet

    Uses other people computers to get traffic? Sounds like a botnet bot? Illegal much? Yes!

    It's not a bot net it's pooling just like they did for YouTube views right after simple switching proxies stopped working. You install and voluntarily run the program that visits other users sites, this earns you credits that you can use to get people to come to your site.

    The software is an interesting idea, obviously it's doing a positive thing I'm just not quite convinced it gives a benefit large enough to run in this pool 24/7 but we'll see if like to see some case studies on how improving your traffic in these metrics pays off.

    I will never find the thread but I had this same idea a few years back but I wanted to do it with android phones. The basic principal is sound google does improve rankings based on how many people choose a website but whther or not enough people are using this guys service is unknown to me.

    I don't think it will work ...CTR dont have that much weight in ranking algo ..It is more relevant to test panda bot when your keyword is in top 5 positions.

    I used pandabot in September for my properties that were on page 3. During the month long campaign, i did not build backlinks because I was in the midst of redesigning those properties and rewriting new content. The results that for certain keywords, my properties went to page 2. All others saw an upward increase of four to six spots.

    I think its about consistency in the amount of searches, as well as actions performed on the page (scrolling,clicking internal links etc etc) that helped. But of course i ran a month long campaign and not a one day effort.

    I used it for about 4-5 moths straight. The idea was good but theres sort of a "punishment" for not leaving your bot running for X amount of time/week, which i didnt like.

    The problem with that was, most of the time it wasnt running was not by my choice, but because the POS would constantly crash, update after update, after update.. pleaded with the admin to change it but hes very hard headed about any improvements id suggested.

    I checked my GA and it was showing decent referral hits, but a bunch serp hits were all from unknown keyword terms. IMO, if the G god doesnt show it as being a hit from serp with "keyword phrase", then theyre likely not giving it any credit as such.

    I have not returned for about 3-6 months now and honestly, not a damn bit of difference in my ranking. Same goes for social signals they provide. I do believe that these factors are measured but given extremely little weight.

    If youre looking to rank solely on this, forget it. The only thing I would say its useful for is flipping domains with fake traffic stats. Strong trust flow, diversified IBLs from relevant niches with T2 & T3 backing them, is the only thing I know that makes a noticeable changes quickly. With those done properly (and assuming your internal SEO is good), traffic comes naturally.

    I did a test on CTR about 4-5 months ago and I didn't see a bump in rankings (minor dancing but that was happening before the test as well). I used residential IPs and all. Maybe it's changed now. This could be used to game google suggest though - that's always nice.

    EDIT: My apologies for posting here - just saw the OP start date, this thread came up because someone bumped it.

    Sorry man that was me by mistake! But while you're here that post really interests me. Do you mind tellinge about your setup because I'm thinking of making some free software to do the same.

    What browser did you use? Did you mix up plugins resolutions etc?
    Where did you source the ip's from?
    How many clicks did you send?

    I only did desktop. DSL connection with a router that can reset the IP remotely. No resolution changes. I ran the test for like 3-4 days, searching every few minutes, so not sure about exact click amounts.

    I wanted it to look natural and not raise any alarms since it's a dutch site. Later on in my case study update, I will use all traffic to see how that goes.

    That's a pretty great setup! Did you try to game Google suggest with it afterwards?
