Is there any way for us to know where our traffic coming from? All I know, if we can determine where the traffic is coming from, we can also make a guide or table of traffic source for us how to improve our website. Basically, there are 3 kinds of traffic source and these are Direct Traffic, Referring Sites and Search Engines.
What are these? it’s simple. Direct traffic means that these are the traffic that directly came to your. Referring sites on the other hand, are traffic that came from other websites that has a link going to your site. Search engine traffic, my favorite traffic source.
