Does traffic exchange software like JingLing affect SEO? Traffic exchange software controls your web browser and automatically visits sites in exchange for other people running the software visiting your site.

I am only asking in terms of SEO, and not if its good for earnings or not. I am aware that it's dead traffic with high bounce rate.

I ask because I've seen that when my site received traffic through Google ads, SEO has skyrocketed. It helped me rank well for many keywords. Based on this, my assumption is that traffic helps SEO.

Will JingLink help SEO?

  • Alexa rank does not affect Google's ranking algorithms - seroundtable.com/…. I'm not sure if the same can be said for other search engine rankings. Good content and linking is going to do a whole lot more for SEO than fake traffic. – tshimkus Oct 21 '19 at 3:29

    Welcome to Webmasters! Direct traffic does nothing for SEO if that is what you are asking. Cheers!! – closetnoc Oct 21 '19 at 3:56
  • @tshimkus Thanks for the generic answer, Neither I asked about good content and linking nor I ever talked about Alexa rank. My question is very straight forward if you notice – Ankit Srivastava Oct 22 '19 at 21:25
  • @closetnoc is it possible for you to quote any source or studies ? As I said from my own experience, I saw direct traffic did effect in SEO . – Ankit Srivastava Oct 22 '19 at 21:26
  • Thank you for your very kind words. You did ask what kind of traffic would help and the answer is real traffic from real users. In short the answer is no, page visits from bots have absolutely no positive effect on search rankings. Google will use direct traffic data collected from Chrome browser in its ranking analysis so direct visits can help, but only when using Google's ecosystem. It's the same reason clickthrough from Google Ads helped your ranking. They do not use Google Analytics as these are configured by site owners and could be prone to tampering if it was a factor. – tshimkus Oct 23 '19 at 2:20
