    what is Google "referral" traffic?
    When I look at my stats in Google Analytics I see lots of "organic" traffic from Yahoo and mostly "referral" traffic from Google. This means that I cannot see any keywords for this traffic.
    What does this mean?

    Most of mine is from google/imgres which is traffic through my images on google/images.

    It does not let you show keywords being tracked but in my WMT I can see which images are drawing traffic.

    Do you have lots of images on your site?

    can also be traffic clicking on a link on another web site
    That can also be traffic originating by users clicking on a link on another web site and arriving at your web site. They are "referred" to you, by the other web site.

    Traffic that is obtained from clicks on other websites Like forums signatures clicks, or social media sites clicks. Organic traffic is good as compare to referral also my experience is that organic traffic has low bounce rate then referral.
