The V on the phone and on the qwerty keyboard is miles apart.

If you look in Google Trends or in Keyword Planner at the value, you will see that this keyword has increased exponentially over the last few months. What is really interesting. Because apparently from then on fake traffic was started to generate on this word.

What is also noticeable, if you look in Ahrefs, that the traffic is so high only in 1-2 countries. Either this is really due to a special keyboard layout - or traffic was generated with proxies from this country.

So personally I'm actually 100% convinced that the traffic of these keywords is artificially pushed up, apparently they didn't even pay attention to the fact that proxies from several different countries are used.



And Traffic :D
Yes, apparently it's an adult site in those countries. Explains a lot.

As for the typo and keyboard keys placement. True but I've seen worse. :D

I am firmly convinced that traffic alone says next to nothing about the strength of a link.

However, based on the keywords and traffic, you can at least tell if it's a real page or just a guest post farm. You still have to look at the keywords that rank beforehand.

Also, it is important to look at the backlink profile of the website and look where on the website the post is published!

Ahref traffic data is based on the rankings, not on analytics. So even if artificial bot traffic is used, unless the keyword is ranked in top 10, ahref won't show the traffic.

But what´s about creating an brand like "blackhatworld" or "MySiteHasAName9999".
You´re ranking for #1 for this keyword (normally) in a very short time, since no one using the branded name (eg. MySiteHasAName9999).
Then you going to spam the keyword in google via any traffic bot.
The traffic of the keyword increases and you rank for #1.
Now ahrefs showing my site has tons of traffic.

That will work, ahrefs shows me high traffic, but in fact i got 0 traffic - that is what some guestpost farms do.
Since not all people checking where the traffic is comming from. In fact, only by the keyword it's hard determine, if this isn´t real.
But if 100% of the traffic just comming from the keyword, it´s a bit obvious. Seen a lot of page where 100% of traffic comming from such words.
