    Is there any proof that using adwords to lead visitors to your domain which you are also trying to rank could harm the organic rankings because once Google knows that you are paying customer It might want you to stay that way

    Would you advise to use a different domain for Adworsd CPC campaigns

    Adwords has noting to do with your ranking, but if you are making $$ with adwords campaigns I don't see the point of doing black hat.

    I don't think there is any relation between SEO and Adwords but who knows its "Google"

    Seriously, think about your question. Go to like a cave and meditate on it for a while.

    Sarcasm aside... Adwords could not be bad for your site; like how could it? You are paying for an advert and users who are interested click on it and appear on your site. If your site provides what the advert said, they will interact and remain there for a while potentially even leading to a sale.

    The longer the visitors stay, the more it will help your SEO efforts as the site will slowly gain positive metrics.

    Best of luck man

    There is no relationship. Use both.

    So in fact using Adwords in addition to SEO both WH and BH would help your overall ranking?

    If you're a big Adwords spender, you get a manager, who in turn gets you contacts in Google. That's how big companies rank : see Ebay? They quit Adwords, then got "busted"(like Google didn't "see" Ebay spamming the world over before the decided to quit adwords?).

    Adwords can't hurt you, but if you're a big spender and decide to leave, they can screw you(see Ebay).

    I'm reading (with my poor English) and I don't understand what the OP wants to ask. If you use AdWords to bring your site in top ... how to be bad for the SEO, what is the relation ? You pay a service - called AdWords from Google - that is like you pay a banner here in this forum. There is no relation between the Ads and SEO except that maybe your site gets more traffic and you have to make the difference between your real traffic and the one that is brought by the Ads.
    This is the answer that I consider to be given based on what I understand, still how do you think like this - is still a big question "???" mark for me :)
