    Keyword ranking is more important because traffic is more or less depended on it. If your keywords are in the first page of Google, then it is considered that your website will receive huge traffic.

    According to me Ranking is most important if you have ranking then traffic is also be comes automatically. Now these day 80% of traffic is comes from Search engine.
    So, Ranking is must for long time Traffic.

    If you are targeting search engines for getting traffic to your website then keyword rank is an important factor.

    It has to be traffic is more important. There are more sources of traffic than ranking high for a keyword and you need to look at these other traffic sources. Social media, content marketing, advertising, pay per click etc. You need to balance effort against return from each of these traffic sources

    In today's scenario, traffic is much more important than ranking. Ranking has been dependent on many factors and literally all the promotional activities are also quite prior for the ranking of a website in the search engines. Hence when one would look out for traffic, ranking also will get a boost at the same time.

    Ranking and Traffic both are important and interconnected with eachother. For example if you have good ranking on Google it means you will get more traffic and if you are getting more traffic it means you are working for SEO so you will get good ranks automatically.

    It's neither traffic nor page ranking. What matters is attracting the right type of visitors who are going to convert.

    Ranking and traffic both are important for any website. Ranking is important if your website is ranking for some competitive keyword, which can drive traffic to your website. Keyword rankings which has less or no search volume are not important.

    As CoolHandCol pointed out, there are other ways to get traiffic other than ranking. But, nadablue has a good point as well - a high percentage of people consult a search engine before purchasing any product or service. So, as long as you target the right keywords - thank you, Eri - and as long as you get ranked high enough, the traffic will come to you. Since ranking brings traffic, ranking would be more important. Even though others have stated that traffic brings ranking, traffic is only one of many factors. There is nothing wrong with getting traffic from other sources, in fact you should use these other sources, to ensure you reach as many potential customers as possible. But, because of the large percentage of people who use them, ranking in the search engines can bring the most traffic.

    Traffic is more importatnt, there are so many sources of traffic to gaining high ranking or for akeywords and you need to look at these other traffic source.Social Media is the best way to getting good traffic to your business or promote sites.If you want more traffic use Social Media Optimization.
    e.g.
    A) Facebook
    B) Twitter
    C) Linkedin
    D) Google+

    Traffic is always most important. Are you talking about google keyword ranking or google page rank?

    Ranking is the important part in seo, if you keywords are ranking on a good position in Google then surely the traffic for those will be coming for your site. For long term traffic your keywords must be ranked on good position.

    Both ranking and traffic plays an important role. Firstly try to rank your keywords, if your keywords will rank you can automatically improve the traffic of the website.

    It is fully depends upon the keywords if your keywords in the top 10 of the google it has the highest traffic. Traffic depends on ranking if your keyword rank is low you need to perform so many works for that particular keyword so it's clearly depends on keywords.

    Ranking and traffic both are equally important. Read about this in one of the moz blogs- "I'm Ranking, So Where's My Traffic?!" "I am getting traffic but where is my ranking"
    One of the most important factors is Keywords and how creatively you use them in content. boost rankings for your keywords then it would be beneficial to have a lot of traffic.

    Good question... I believe in terms of internet marketing, traffic is more important for example: as there is no point in ranking for a bunch of keywords that generates almost negligible traffic... A popular or well featured website can get the visitors from everywhere without depending on rankings.. Small businesses may need a reverse approach...
