I've known a couple of people get banned on Helium for joining traffic exchanges, because it resulted in a flood of clicks and they decided it was click fraud. I'd be worried Adsense might do the same so I've steered clear of traffic exchanges - maybe someone who knows a bit more could explain the pros and cons.
Avoid them: they tend to bring unfocussed click happy traffic - not very useful at all
Relache is correct. This kind of traffic does no good. In fact if you start getting sudden heavy traffic, your work can be penalized. Search Engines Suspect Sudden Big Traffic to websites or blogs. The BEST Thing to do is to Create Genuine and Useful Content, select the best suited Topic and Keywords, use pictures+Video+Music+RSS and Publish and then submit your work to directories, publish ezine articles. This is all as far as I have learnt and understood.

Hi,I've had a worrying automated message on one of my hubs which states "warning your hub appears to be receiving traffic from a traffic exchange" I've back linked all my hubs in the same way. I do not understand what this means. Has anyone else received warnings like this?

Is it allowed to do traffic exchange? In my opinion there is no violation because it will be exchanged with human not the robot and we are also watching their articles in return.But will hubpages allowed that or not?

I noticed on someone's Hub about Helium, they got banned because they used a traffic exchange. What on earth is a traffic exchange and why is it so bad?
