    Exactly how much DOES it help to have quality traffic in SEO? How valuable would it be to have an extra 100 or so good crawling unique hits per day using something Google can see like Chrome browser? Is there any real value in this at all?

    I believe that quality traffic is due to follow if you do sufficient keyword research and follow the trends. I never really understood how people get non-quality traffic unless they don't do those two things. Keyword research will tell you if the keyword is even searched and trend analysis will show you buying patterns/seasonality/all that jazz. It doesn't take a rocket scientist.

    No, no... I mean will artificially creating "quality" traffic that hits your site and moves through it increase rankings in and of itself.....?

    in the past people have said that traffic and a low bounce rate does increase your ranking (but you need analytics installed so google can track it) but I'm not sure how true that is.
