    Ok, I have blueprinted this idea for a couple of weeks now, and I'm just about to apply it on my Clickjacking platform. The trick is, creating traffic to a website that I want to rank (website A / money website), manipulating a heavily-trafficked website (website B) that I own and faking the referrer to be of Facebook. Thus, I'm trying to create mass traffic to website A as if the traffic would come from Facebook (or other websites, but Facebook is better because of its Trust Rank, and the fact that FB referrer isn't trackable).

    So, the method involves clickjacking a user in a heavily-trafficked website (website B) so the user will basically click a hidden A href tag that contains a src Url to the website that I want to rank (website A) + an event click to track the number of clicks - and the referrer of website A would be of Facebook.

    Therefore, if a user visits 4 internal pages of website B, and the average time on site per page would be 2.5 minutes, the same data would be replicated to the money site, i.e., 4 pages visits, same time on site, BR etc.

    if you can grasp the big picture, had I had a 2000 daily unique visitors for website B, I could have replicated the analytics data to website A or several money websites.

    I need your thought on this since it is easy to accomplish.

    My main question is:

    Would Google give a damn if a website will have lots of traffic from Facebook in terms of better ranking it ?

    Don't forget that the Facebook referrer is always: "facebook.com/l.php" i.e. none trackable - even to Google

    You're going to get a few opinions and inputs on this. I'd say the best way for you to find out is to do it yourself and see where it takes you. As I'm sure you already know, most of internet marketing techniques have been derived from people that tried things until they noticed positive results. If you're right, you'd be sitting on a money bank as you'd be able to monetize several services with this technique alone. If this does end up working, the best thing I would do is create a website "B" in several broad niches. Then, you'd be able to sell traffic that targeted and of quality.

    Just my .02.

    Best of luck

    Any eventual influence could be caused only if the websites had Google Analytics code installed + if Google takes into account in terms of ranking the GA traffic statistics.

    maybe it works....and yes as xrfanatic said you need GA on site B to see the referrer...

    try it... and let us know

    btw some YT views sellers use Facebook as referrer, maybe you can contact them and ask for traffic from that referrer, with them staying a couple of minutes at your site

    Well, obviously the linked websites should contain GA tracking, and I'm pretty sure big G does take into consideration the analytics data when algoing their rankings reasults - don't count on them for supplying you such a great analytics platform for free, they have their interests.

    Faking the FB referrer is the easy part, finding out whether the trick works is another (sure I'm gonna try it eventually)

    Everything that I've seen, tested and witnessed in the past has shown me that traffic is not a ranking factor.

    I'd still love to see an experiment on this, mind you.

    Did you split tests to find out what type of traffic didn't affect rankings? since there are lots of traffic sources: direct, referrals, paid etc

    I tested out FB referrer traffic and didn't see any change in rankings, let me know how your experiment goes though as mine was pretty small scale. (1XXX visitors dripped over 30 days with 60% FB referrer, 10% Bing 30% Google) to a site with 30-50 uniques/day normally

    OP: How you're doing this isn't the point. What you wanna know is if traffic from FB to your site will boost rankings... am I right?

    well, not exactly. Facebook was just an example. What I want to find out is whether traffic per se that is not organic I.e. of google, can affect the rankings of a website. That is, making google believe that a certain website has become valuable to the users so they keep visiting it / its pages
