Sometimes if you are ranked #1 by bidding .02 cpv, you'll get lots of traffic, but if you bid higher on that same target, you'll get even more daily traffic.

It's not always the case, but I have seen it happen.

I believe it is the traffic source throwing more visitors your way if they see the higher bid price -- something in their algorithm. Since the cpv network shows a limited amount of views daily per visitor, I think they weigh the bid costs and give the higher bids preference -- in some cases.

With that said, I don't try to get extra high bids. If I can sit at #1 and just barely over #2 ranked bidder, I'm good to go. But I too find that being ranked 2 or 3 is good when the ROI says that's where I need to be.
