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.

Hi Graig-F,

[webmasterworld.com...] 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.

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.
