    For my website, GA shows more referral traffic than organic traffic ? Is it good for website ranking?

    For ranking well it depends on the kind of websites that are referring traffic, if the referring sites have high domain authority and page rank it will have a positive impact on your website ranking, and if, the referring sites have low page rank your site would not be ranking well in search results. For understanding this point you should read more about creating backlinks and social bookmarking sites.

    Yes, it's good if your referral traffic websites are truth and have high authority, in the same market and also have the high ranking.

    Try to get more organic traffic then the views will be automatically increased on your website and do some off-page SEO strategies to earn more real traffic to your website will be good for your blog.

    both are great for rankings.
    But if your website is about lets say cooking and your referral traffic comes from adult websites or forex, then its not good for ranking.

    MOZ has a good toolbar that shows the page authority and site authority rankings. Also keep in mind the timing of organic traffic. Obviously if your site is recent it will have more referral traffic than organic but over time the organic traffic will grow.

    I have to agree with one of the comments in this thread. It's true that it's important where your referral traffic is coming from. If you're getting referrals from black hat sites or sites that are deemed malicious, this will effect your rankings. But if your referrals are coming from high ranking established sites this is great, it shows Google that people are interested in your content. Also, it was mentioned that MOZ has a great SEO toolbar. I use it and I've have found it really helpful.

    Your ranking depends on the referral traffic. If your referral is good and will provide a dofollow link it will make big difference.

    Yeah, I have to agree, dofollow links are the best but sometimes they're hard to get. But the more dofollow links you have the more Google will like you LOL!
