Questions about the View Count.

I wanted to know if the traffic that comes through your decklist factor into Google's relevancy algorithm.
If the view count on a T/O decklist surpasses the view count of another post on MTG Salvation, would that top a Google search if both posts are found using the same keywords?
Quite frankly, I want know everything technical about how a view works. Is it a one-time thing from a specific IP? Can it only be someone on the site that gets you a hit? Or could it be someone who found it browsing without a T/O account?
I've really grown to love the T/O community and you guys have helped me grow as a player, so I come to you guys for questions I really hope you can answer as you have countless of times, or at least point me in the direction of where I can learn. Thanks in advance!!
could be logged in or not logged in, from any ip or from the same, with some protections to prevent repetitive views
i highly doubt it matters to google

yeaGO: Thanks for the response. I'm a little confused on how in site traffic doesn't factor in on a grand scale, though. Which is really what I'd love to understand.

All I know is that I can google my deck names if they are unique enough and get them as the top result.

I can attest to this, since I can google multiple combination of key words and as long as my general's name is in the search it almost always pops up. However, I'd like it to see if the influx of views will eventually translate into topping search results.
