I have an experiment I would like to enlist anybody willing to help.

1) Please go to Google and search for "Witt Lincoln Mercury"

http://www.google.com/search?q=%22witt+ ... rt=70&sa=N

2) Please search for and click on the link "Never Buy A Lincoln" I am currently on the bottom of page 8. If I am not on page 8, please look for the link for which page it may have moved to. Do not click any other link, just click on the "Never Buy A Lincoln" link.

3) That's it.

Here is what I want to test: "Does clicking on the link in Google, increase your search rank for the term you searched for?"

My reasoning is this, Google tracks the clicks for each search term, and can use that data to know if the term is relevant. After all, if you click on the link, perhaps you think it is relevant and therefore Google bumps you up the list.

Yesterday I was on page 9. Today page 8. If a bunch of you click on the link, will they bump me up to page 7, or 6? Does it even matter?

Thoughts?

That is just google dancing. Clicking links in SERP's will NOT improve the site's rankings.

If only it were that easy !

Let me save you some time... The amount a result is clicked has no effect at all on where it is placed.

It would be great if this would work, but it doesn't..

You can see, that gameguru.ru (believe me - I counted all of them exactly) have:
- 7 PR7 backlinks
- 186 PR6 backlinks (with 30 links per page in general - it's rating common pages and there are exactly 30 links on it)
- 22 PR5 backlinks
- 312 PR4 backlinks

Now it have PR6. SO I think if we take 5 or more sites we can figure the formula on G PR
