    Nothing really new here.

    Traffic was never going to be a significant ranking signal - it's far too easily manipulated.

    High traffic may results in lots of links to the site via sharing, blogs, referrals and so. This is what helps ranking.

    I do local SEO. It gives directory listings a lot of juice. It is extremely hard for me to move above them with do follow back links.
