What is Click Through Rate Manipulation?
Organic CTR manipulation is a search engine optimization (SEO) technique where webmasters generate fake clicks towards their own websites to trick the search engine into thinking the website is more popular than it is. Does it work? Hell yes. I have ranked sites with pure CTR and nothing else.
CTR Manipulation is used to appear as organic traffic and click-through. Understanding what CTR means, you need to know that the number of clicks a website or ad receives are divided by its total impressions. By manipulating this rate web owners can increase their site’s popularity by increasing the ratio between these two metrics for keywords they wish to rank well on search engine results pages (SERPs).
SEO experts are utilizing services that activate human interaction, such as micro-workers. These real people serve small tasks over the web to generate traffic for your website instead of using bots like in older techniques (which can be potentially harmful). Services that utilize this method only cost around 0.2 cents per hour and some bots reach up to 5k USD a year depending on how much you use them; however, they have their own setbacks–some platforms may not even pay out those who desire payment!
SEO agencies, webmasters, and large website owners use services like Google My Business to manipulate a website’s popularity. SEO experts utilize devices including multiple mobile phones in order to generate traffic for online properties.
But, as search engines like Google become more advanced in catching click fraud and traffic generators on their ad-sense platform along with other networks that track clicks through bots generated by IPV4 proxies or data center IP ranges are no longer effective. But it’s not just the ads companies who can detect fraudulent activity coming into advertising platforms–social media websites also have methods to catch fake users which is why you need to be cautious when implementing a bot for CTRs.
While for a local website or small business site looking to gain an edge, Google My Business CTR SEO can still help you rank higher in the three pack and achieve top spots on Maps listings. Manipulating user-generated signals like click-throughs and traffic will give you that competitive advantage as well!
