    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 to traffic from one place to the next. Referral traffic is one of three statistics tracked by Google Analytics. The others are Search traffic -- visits from a search engine -- and Direct traffic to a domain.


    Google Analytics helps you track website activity that results from links you build, bookmarking sites you submit to and social media posts you make, such as short links from Twitter. Google looks at the source of the traffic and reports statistics about user behavior. Referral traffic also can take the form of tracking code placed on other websites, including banner ads such as AdWords, to include a referral code linked to a specific marketing campaign.

    Referral traffic increases the "page rank" of your blog, which boosts it in Google search results.

    Referral Traffic is traffic that is being sent to your site from a source outside of Google. For example, whenever someone clicks on a hyperlink from another site that directs to yours, it would be considered Referral Traffic.
