I know what a Referrer is.
But in analytics software, you expect to have a separate report from traffic from search engines and from traffic from people linking to you. Well, I expect that.
How do you call to the "people linking to you" report?
I see addfreestats mixed them all, and call them "referrers". As well statcounter mixed them all too, but they call it "came from".

What do you think? What's the name for the traffic from incoming static links? (i.e. rather than paid, organic, typeins)

Thanks for your comment.
I've just seen that Google Analytics call them "Referring sites".
