    Search engine traffic versus link traffic.

    I've always read (and it makes sense to believe) that search engine traffic is the best kind of traffic because it's very targetted--people are actively looking for what your site contains (usually).

    But one of my sites in particular gets a lot of traffic from a link that's on another site with a similar theme. Would that traffic be just as good as the search engine traffic? What do you think?

    Since the other site is on topic, the traffic you get from it should be as good as SE traffic. Some link trades really do work.

    Every traffic is good traffic in my book If you're getting a lot of traffic from that link - that can't be bad.

    Also, links help you get better SERP's - so it's not a dichotomy.
