Google: Web Site Traffic Is Not A Ranking Factor

  •   April 30, 2020

Want some pure myth busting from Google? Well, here it is. Google’s official Google Webmaster Twitter account said “traffic to a website isn’t a ranking factor.” This is in response to an SEO asking if it is.

This is a super popular myth within the novice SEO world and beyond.

Truth is, I don’t think I ever directly covered this question. We talked about web site behavioral signals and traffic throttling theories, but not directly this – which surprises me.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
