    So after seeing all the buzz of these social traffic sites such as youlikehits and addmefast, I am a little confused on how this helps in the serps. Sure, getting a steady flow of facebook likes and google plus 1's looks good in Google's eyes, but with the website traffic aspect of these sites, how does this help in any way..?

    How is having random people click your site so that they can get points going to help a sites rankings? To me, this just seems like very fake traffic and wont help in any way and could in fact just hurt a sites ranking if Google catches on.

    It ultimately depends on what kind of traffic the site gets. As long as you get quality traffic, why would you care about rankings? We do rankings to get traffic, not get traffic to get rankings.

    Just like what mzonas said, people rank their site for keywords to get quality traffic. I personally have a few sites that get great traffic through Social Media without any rankings so I don't need to wast my time, energy or money into ranking my site as I already have the quality traffic that I need and on top of that, my sites are in a very competitive niche and ranking for my keyword(s) would take quite some time.
