Question: Does your Traffic (hits per day) affect your Google ranking?
Answer: No one really knows for certain… But many people do think that clicks from Google do matter. More clicks is better. Less back tracking is better… Being a ‘Google Detective,’ we might surmise that they would look at click behavior – do people click over to a site? If so, do they stay there or do they return to the search page and click on another link? That is a very easy way for Google to get user feedback.
This then implies… 1) Fix your keywords to match the target searches, 2) make your tags ACCURATELY describe your content, so people are not disappointed when they land, and 3) make your site enticing and relevant, again so people do not click back.
Ultimately having accurate relevant tags, keywords, and pages is good for Google and good for you!
