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.

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?
