    Does anyone have sites that show up in their analytics as bringing in massive amounts of traffic?

    If so any suggestions on these types of sites as I currently receive a majority of visits via Google and direct traffic. I would like to expand onto referral traffic

    Thanks!

    If you run around placing relevant backlinks on sites you will get some referral traffic.

    I have a rule of thumb that I use where I try to get 75% of my traffic from search engines, and the remainder split across referrals and direct. The reasoning is that if you consistently show up in the search engines for keywords in your niche, then other high quality sites will do the backlinking for you as your site becomes recognized as an authority.

    Those types of backlinks will be of much higher value than forum profile spam or other sketchy backlinking techniques, and will usually result in higher converting, lower bounce, high time on page and pageview visitors.
