    As a percentage, how much traffic comes to your site through Google?

    According to Analytics 7.94% of my traffic comes through Search Engines. I'll presume most of that is Google

    According to google analytics, 76% of the traffic is come from search engine



    And then among all the search engine, google provide 78% traffic



    It means that about 59% of overall traffic is come from google

    It also depends on how much traffic. If you have 10 hits only, and 7 of them are from Google, then saying 70% is a little misleading.

    I'm just saying percentages are a little misleading. I have 50% of traffic from search engines and someone else has. But I have 20 000/40 000 hits from Google and someone else has 50/100 hits from Google, so it would not be truly accurate in justifying the site's traffic.

    Not really, if someone have 20/40 hits from google and you have 20000/40000 are same in maths. If you are statistical person, you should know 10 samples are good enough for you to get the result. The only condition is the website is under stable condition.

    10 samples is nothing. Say if you were finding out the ethnicity of the population in USA and you get 10 random people. 8/10 you choose are Asian. Does that mean 80% of the population are Asian? I wouldn't think so. They are same in figures, but have different meanings when it comes to the fairness of statistical variances.
