I'm getting ready to launch a new site in the adult niche, I had intentions to do some traffic trading but after speaking with some other webmasters with TGP sites I became even more confused about traffic trades.
Now to my knowledge there are forced traffic trades where depending on set parameters you receive "x" amount of traffic. My question is, does google therefor penalize your site for not having organic traffic and does this also lower your PR ranking?
I think in my personal opinion it would be better to have a much higher PR and google positioning than to pay for traffic that might not convert to a subscriber anyway..
Thanks for your opinions!
