Any recent stats on traffic from links? Craig_F msg:414043 5:24 pm on Mar 25, 2002 (gmt 0) I'm looking for stats on traffic from links vs. serps. Anyone know where I can find something relatively recent?

Craig, do you mean something like, "The average site gets 60% of its traffic from search engines, 20% from links, and 20% unidentifiable"? I've not seen statistics like that, but they might exist someplace. I think the implications for any one web site, though, would be unclear. Individual site vary a lot, obviously, and the split would also depend on what site promotion techniques are used. paynt msg:414045 5:50 pm on Mar 25, 2002 (gmt 0)
...] was a discussion started recently asking the same question. I'm going to tie these both in with each other so we don't split the discussion too much. webmasterworld.com
I also started a discussion at
Increasing Traffic from Reciprocal Links [ webmasterworld.com] to jumpstart a discussion on ways to improve on traffic from reciprocal links.
I know none of this answered your question directly, just doing a bit of housecleaning :)

That's exactly what I'm looking for. I've actually read stats like this before, I just can't remember where. The stats I read were about how users find web sites.
What I need them for is to show the general value of links, even if they don't boost your pop.
