Does anyone know whether Google makes use of the information it obtains via Google analytics in ranking of search results?
Does it, for instance, make use of the bounce rate for a page given a certain search term? If you have a high bounce rate (information Google would not have been able to obtain without Analytics), would this negatively impact your ranking?
This is especially relevant to me, since I'm running a web application that has only one main page. Therefore, users might stay on that page for a long time, but the bounce rate will always be close to 100% - that's not something I'm able (or willing) to change.
