    I have heard people mention this term, what does it mean?

    It's more or less word of mouth traffic. This is the best kind in my opinion and can only be achieved by websites that truely offer something of value. On the flip side, there's earch engine traffic which is leaning more and more on organic links. These are links that people give to you without any reciprocation. Before, search engine traffic could be had without organic links. You could submit your site to lots of online directories and link farms and watch your traffic soar as the search engines figure you've got some good link popularity. Now they more or less ignore this type of link and give you better standings for organic links.

    I have always taken the term Organic to mean that the SE positioning and links are developed naturally rather than being paid links.

    I totally agree with Scott on this. Whatever you want to call it, word of mouth is by far the best kind of traffic to have.

    That's exactly how I believe it should be interpreted: natural or organic search engine optimization. However, it does include some of the paid links as well, RedDCP.

    Cf:

    "Organic" or "Natural" search engine optimization (SEO) is accomplished by optimizing your web pages and by increasing your "link popularity" by acquiring or paying for links that point to your web site. This gives you high rankings at the Search Engines for your chosen search terms.

    Best of luck in this new week, everyone!!!

    Yeah, cut the propaganda, guys. Tsk, tsk. You both know full well that the definition Geno posted is right.

    The word-of-mouth stuff is called "Viral Marketing."
