Hi. I am very new to all of this and paid someone to get traffic to my site. I am noticing a very large percentage of the hits are coming from one place, Boardman, Oregon and the second highest city is 'not set'. What does this mean?

Hi Rene,
First of all no body will suggest you to get paid traffic that will not helpful in any way. So first of all do not buy traffic from any vendor they use software to send the traffic and those traffic will be completely irrelevant to your website/business.

They used software to send traffic to your website that is why you are getting such traffic from one place and I assume bounce rate will also high.

Thanks

Like I said, I'm brand new to learning all of this. I didn't even know the significance of a bounce rate, and, yes, it is very high. Should I discontinue the service? Can it do harm?

Rene,
Yes buying traffic won't be helpful in any way. You can also same question to service provider why you are getting such traffic.

Thanks

I have a client with a similar issue. We tracked it to the Amazon AWS and are still digging trying to find out why.

What if the bounce rate is very low, but the engagement time is also very low?

The source of mine turned out to be the vendor from whom I purchased leads. It was a scam and they have been reported.
