    i used to think ranking has nothing to do with traffic. then again, it kinda make sense that it does.. IBP, the SEO software also states that traffic is good for ranking. so i wonder if anybody has any experience that supports the argument.

    I would not risk it on a adsense autoblog.

    It helps with ranking but only if the visitors are real. The problem is as soon as your traffic "campaign" is over you get bumped right down the line again on after your traffic gets pulled.

    In short, it's better to try to get real organic traffic than paid traffic if its serps your worried about.

    It would be smart for Google to bump your SERPs a bit upon customers buying Adwords. They'd get a lot more sales.

    I dont buy traffic for seo purposes, i buy it to send to affiliate links.

    With the right traffic, and right sponsors, it's not hard to get a 200% return on your traffic investment.

    I buy directly from websites, instead of going through a traffic broker.

    you mean for example, if your affiliate product is weight loss, you find websites talking about weight loss and put your URL on their sites? why would they want to do that?
