    I'm doing a reputation management project now, and I'm trying to push up some microsites in the SERPs to clear negative reviews off of the first page for this company's branded keywords. I've at 7 positives / 3 negatives at this point, but I'm having trouble turning the corner 10 for 10.

    I've got more backlinks than the negative sites (save for Yahoo! Answers) so the only thing I can think of that these other sites have that my microsites don't is traffic.

    Will purchasing redirect traffic from somthing like "IncreaseTrafficOnWebsite" help me out? Or will the fact that it's just bouncing redirect traffic actually hurt me?

    Any other ideas for turning the corner on this project? Is there Twiends style system that where users can buy and exchange SERPs clicks and brief engagement?

    Neither. Rankings don't depend on traffic - and couldn't depend on traffic - because unless you're using Google Analytics and Google violates its own T&C they have no way of knowing how much traffic your sites are getting.

    Buying junk traffic does help you lower your Alexa rank but that's about all it does.
