    Among high ranking and traffic which is more important for you.As per my view both are really important and if we are a part of SEO then we need to focus on both of the things.

    Can't really figure out what you're trying to point out honestly.

    I think you meant which of the two (high ranking or traffic) is more important for us?

    A high ranking will get you good traffic (assuming you are hitting the right keywords). On the other hand, traffic doesn't ensure you have a high ranking when it comes to the keywords because they might be finding your site from social networking sites or advertisements. If I have to choose which one, I would choose popularity over ranking since rankings can come easily when you're popular already.

    700 or more social bookmarks, this really helps and link pyramids with unique content and then blasted with scrapebox.

    Traffic. You can't make money without it. Though, typically one will help the other to be reached. High rankings can help generate traffic, while traffic can help generate high rankings.

    How could you consider splitting traffic and rankings. Why do you rank for on selected keywords ?

    Answer : To get a traffic source which will last through time....

    The answer your looking for is "targetted traffic" which SEO will bring you

    While high ranking usually helps you get more traffic, you do not need the rankings to get traffic to your site. Ranking is only important because it helps you get the TRAFFIC, so traffic is more important.
