Why would you think direct traffic is harmful to your site for any reason?

Hello,

Direct traffic will only increase your website ranking. The more the relevant direct traffic comes to your website, more are the chances of your website of getting a higher rank on the search engine and it will help boost your SEO results automatically.

Hope this will help you with your query!

Firstly websites don't rank - web pages do.

With that factoid out of the way, please explain to me how you figure any search engine would know your traffic patterns? And even if Google is lying about not taking analytics traffic into it's ranking algo, what about all the sites out there without analytics? And, again even if G is lying, what about Bing and other SEs out there that you don't have any analytics account with - how are they going to rank a site page if they don't have access to your site's traffic logs??

You've got to be kidding - you are just digging a deeper hole.

Help?? You've got to be joking. It is most certainly handing out a bunch of made-up junk for those that haven't got the smarts to know your fluff isn't based on any actual data or experience.

Do you guys just dream this stuff up or do you have to work hard at being uninformed?? Sheesh!

WTF? Where did you get this nonsense from.
How can direct traffic help a sites ranking when the search engines have no idea what direct traffic a site is getting! Totally clueless.

There is no way that direct traffic affects your SERP ranking. Direct traffic helps in improving Alexa ranking.

Well, if you think that direct traffic is just good then just imagine sending silly (not related) traffic on website where you have google anlitycs... and most of the people close the website before it shows (lets say yo've decided for cheap popup traffic).

In this case it won't be really good won't it? as your page bounce ratios can change?
That's why i think that bad quality or not semantically related traffic can actually do some damage to your serps.

Alexa ranking is a proprietary ranking metric for Alexa users only. In other words, if you aren't an Alexa user, they cannot collect your traffic data. And until the amount of Alexa users eclipses non users - well.. what do you think?

So, if it's a proprietary metric to Alexa users only, it doesn't take into consideration the rest of the world's navigation habits, and since it's not part of any search engine algo, do you see it doesn't mean spit?

No, direct traffic do not affect Google ranking.

Direct traffic reflects people who remember your domain and return to it for whatever reason. The more direct traffic you attract, the more chances you have that this traffic will influence your ranking in some way by building your authority.

How does the search engine even know what the site's traffic is? --- how can it affect rankings if the search engines do not know that?
