How do surfers get to a web site?

Visitors to a web site get there from a variety of sources. On most of the web sites I manage this is the order of importance of source of visitors

To all intents and purposes only the first two "web site referral" and "search engine listing" are of any volume importance.

And web site referrals will outnumber search engine referrals by 2 or 3 to every 1 from a search engine, depending on the site. The longer a site has been around, and the more work that has been done on it, the more web site referrals it gets

Search engine referrals and web site referrals are dealt with in more detail on these pages
