    Paid traffic can cause harm to your site's ranking. Google hates paid links. If Google find paid backlinks pointing to your site then it will penalize your site sooner or later but surely.

    What kind of paid traffic you are taking about? If its PPC and addwords then surly these are not gonna hurt your website as long as they are with no-follow attributes,
    It has nothing to do with Page rank and yes it effect the SERPS in way it generates relevant traffic and traffic is one the ranking factor that Google considers to rank a website

    There's a BIG NO from my side to paid traffic cause big search engines hates this policy and some time this will also becomes a reason in decreasing the page ranking.

    I think it would be helpful for your site for very short period but harm your site for very long period so according to me you should not take help of paid links and so on.

    Its just a waste of money. Because it won't be a profit to get paid viewers.

    That assumes that all the traffic you get is real. Which brings me to another point. Many of the other members have mentioned PPC or Adwords as "paid" traffic. If that is the case, you are right in saying that those with the money to spend can get a lot of targeted traffic. I believe, and he can correct me if I'm wrong, that the OP was referring to buying traffic where a "marketing" firm sells a certain number of visitors, usually a very large number, for a fee. Since a larger amount of these so-called "visitors" are fake, it doesn't matter how much you spend, you are wasting your money.

    If you're talking about PPC, well, it might give you some traffic, but it can also cause you higher bounce rates, and It might also cause you lots of money, especially when you do it wrong.

    Advantages of Paid Traffic is:

    -You may get website traffic instantly. Sometimes, your ad appears on the search result or web page. The traffic to your web is generally targeted. You will specify which audience you would like to target your ad at.

    Disadvantages of Paid Traffic is

    - You have to a good budget to use paid traffic methods effectively. If you select the wrong medium to advertise in, you won’t get enough traffic or maybe targeted web traffic.
