Does website visits increase your rankings?
Yes? No? Maybe? How does it play a roll if any?
I don't think it will "directly" affect your rankings, but it's a key factor that Google uses to determine if your site will go into sandbox or not.
Interesting, can you explain more detailed please?
Depends where the visits are coming from, if they are real and no bots they may do.. we are testing this at the moment with some great traffic resource.
I think when the visitor stay a lot on your website, the website bounce rate decreases, and this means your website is liked by visitors and gives informative data that visitors like, and this turned to a big sign to Google to boost your rankings.
Visitors aren't important, but where they come from is what matters. If you are ranked #10 but have a very high CTR, good bounce rate/stick rate there is a good chance you'll move up the SERPs on that alone. Google's algorithm wants to provide the best results in the highest positions.
It will improve the awareness. It's about the best results on Google at the end, and if your sites has lots of visits that means good positions, referrals from other sites which means ranks.
this could be an interesting case study. because we all know google's algorithm is so complicated and sophisticated that even visitor count may be calculated.
I got lots of traffic from YouTube about two years ago. At this time I had no idea about SEO and didn't build a single link to the website. Well, actually the video had the link in the description, but I think it was no-follow. Just because of this traffic my website increased the rankings and I got more and more traffic from YouTube. That's my experience.
I think if you have targeted traffic and you get it for a long period of time then it will increase your rankings. But that's just what I think. Someone should make a case study or something like that.
Still researching on this, It not only depends on the number of visitor also bounce rate & User engagement.
