Will Stopping "paid Traffic" Hurt Pr?
Posted 16 April 2012 - 12:26 PM
I have a new account that is a PR4. I see there has been a pattern of "paid traffic" to this account...primarily from outside of the US and some from places like "Traffic Swarm". I'm not sure about the whole "Paid Traffic" thing, I have no experience with it. I feel like it makes it very difficult to accurately evaluate progress. But maybe I am too naive. I don't want to hurt this clients business. My question is this...Would we loose our PR4 if we don't continue to purchase traffic?

I'm not sure what you mean by a "new account." An account with whom?
With regards to paying for traffic, it's fine if it's actually bringing you traffic, conversions and sales. But it's not something that will help you or your rankings/traffic from Google. At least not in the long run.
Buying traffic doesn't have anything to do with Google so not buying it anymore shouldn't effect your Google toolbar PageRank. (Which incidentally is something else you don't need to worry about as it has no particular meaning.)
