Google Analytics recognizes an extensive list of popular search engines, that can, optionally, be edited. The resulting traffic is then distinguished as either organic or paid. Traffic from unknown search engines is attributed to Referral Traffic.
In addition to Organic Searches, other common traffic types (called Medium) are Direct, Referral, Paid, and Email.
