Direct Traffic - This traffic comes from directly accessing the site's URL without the use of search engine. Example of this are:

Typing in a website URL in your browser’s address bar

Clicking a bookmark in your browser

Clicking a link in a document (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, etc.)

Clicking a link in an application (Outlook, Mail, etc.)

Clicking a link from an instant message

Clicking an HTTP link from an HTTPS website

Bots crawling the site.

Organic Search - This traffic comes from Google searches.

Social - This traffic comes from people clicking a link through the use of social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)

Referral - Referral traffic is Google's method of reporting visits that came to your site from sources outside of its search engine. When someone clicks on a hyperlink to go to a new page on a different website, Analytics tracks the click as a referral visit to the second site.

Email - This traffic comes from links clicked through email messages.
