Does EZA CTR improve Google rankings?

3 replies
I was looking at my ezinearticles.com stats today and found something exiting. I found that the articles with a high CTR (50-60) also had more page views.

The articles with the high CTR are also the articles I know rank good for a few keywords in Google.

I believe that Google check how long time we spend on a website when we leave google. If we come back after a few sec we did not find what we were looking for. If we are gone for a while we probably found something of interrest. Google want us to find interresting things, so the site is given extra points.

Do anyone of you have the same experience? Please check your stats for some research here. please post some feedback.

    If the user clicks the back button then google counts the seconds they stayed on the page and considers this when calculating quality. If the user never comes back it is a good sign, and google gives the page a higher score.

    So your EZ articles that get clicked through more will have fewer returns to google, so it follows logically that they will be viewed more favourably and that this would affect their ranking.

    sorry, i never heard that "time on site" does anything in terms of google rankings. However, thr pagerank of the articles on EZA "indirectly" influence your site's ranking.

    Its more likely that your article with more views and higher CTR got featured on EZA, therefore stays on the high page rank EZA "featured" page longer and this will influence your actual site rankings.

      I would have to do some research to find out where I learned this but I am quite certain that I got this from an authoritative source. Further, it makes perfect sense and it is very easy to measure.
