    Hey Guys, sorry if the post is in the wrong section, but didn't know where to put it.

    Anyways, I was wandering if I use this traffic bots (like jingling) to the competition pages, would it hurt its SEO and google PR??? I'm also planing to use it on their youtube video as well...

    Also, If any of you have a better option feel free to post it :)

    Thanks guys

    Fake traffic does not hurt your rankings and can actually help your credibility with like Alexa.

    as long you have a low bounce rate, it can be helpful

    I am not sure how long that method would actually tarnish their SEO. If the price is cheap enough, it would be worth a try I suppose.

    i have a new site, only fake traffic gets to it, i have a 31% bounce rate.

    i believe that bounce rate is going to be very important for seo, because if a site have a high bounce rate, it means its shit, low bounce rate will mean that ppl visit the site. this is just my opinion

    Just post a shit ton of spammy, shitty backlinks to another persons site. Make it so unnatural that Google will penalize the site for it.

    Traffic doesn't really affect SEO, it affects Alexa ranking more.

    I can see you are already bleeding from your futile effort.

    Negative SEO is only a waste of your time..

    I wont stay in a niche i know is vulnerable to this and still not wearing my protectors.

    If you neg SEO what makes you think others won't do it to you soonest..

    Alexa ranking itself is useless and of no value.
    If your traffic increases it will rank you as per the number of sites
    receiving higher traffic like how teachers grade student position.

    Receive the least traffic and you will be ranked the least in the list, so what use is it?
