Is Dwell Time an SEO ranking factor?

They don't make the ranking algorithm. And, thus, this does not confirm that dwell time is a ranking factor. ... So if you rank on page two (or beyond), almost nobody will be “dwelling” on your page…not even for second. This means that dwell time would only kick-in as a (possible) ranking factor for results in the top 10.

Hi Friends,

If you mean time on page, supposedly Google does not take this into account. On the other hand, they say that bounce rates do influence search results. However, something doesn’t make sense with this. As an example, many blogs have a high bounce rate but may still be engaging, with high time on page. Many blogs can go over 5 minutes compared to the average web page, which is closer to 40 seconds. These can position very well in the SERPs, despite their very high bounce rates. The only answer is that time on page must be what is saving them.
