So why is traffic level so important? I think it's important because it is an indicator, a metric, of how relevant the site is for certain keyword phrases. If relevance is the holy grail, then obtaining links from relevant sites is important.
Martini, are you theorizing that the traffic level to a given page for keywords x,y and z might provide a SERP boost since Google assumes the page is attracting alot of traffic? (regardless of specific rankings)
