    Referral traffic is Google's method of reporting visits that came to your site from sources outside of its search engine. When someone clicks on a hyperlink to go to a new page on a different website, Analytics tracks the click as a referral visit to the second site. The originating site is called a “referrer” because it refers traffic from one place to the next.

    Referral traffic is used to describe visitors to your site that come from direct links on other websites rather than directly or from searches. and Increasing referral traffic is not easy, but it is possible with enough effort. Your site must be original and provide information about a new product or service before most everyone else. If you have a blog, you might also write honest reviews of other products and ask for a link, or write a series of posts on a particular subject. You might be able to use social media to your advantage, you can also buy it from freelancers from SEOclerks at cheap rates.

    There are 3 main kinds of traffic you may see through Google analytics. Organic traffic, direct traffic and referral traffic. Referral traffic, for example, when you leave a link to facebook, and some people click the link to enter your website and this is so-called referral traffic, hope this helps.
