Referred traffic is just traffic unless it converts. Better conversion means less bounce rates and more page views on the site. If you are not getting these actions from your referred traffic, then it does not matter how much you get from your referrals, quantity is not everything.

The referral is the traffic that we get from different domains instead of from search engines.

Referral traffic is important for your website because it sends potential customers to your business thereby, increasing conversions.
When someone visits your website from another domain, they are clicking on a link or performing some type of social activity to reach your website. Search engines (Google and others) consider these clicking activities as positive ranking factors as long as they are coming from reputed and trusted websites.

So, referral traffic is pretty important as long as they are not coming from a source that the search engines do not like.

Referral traffic means the percentage of website traffic that is generated apart from Search Engines (Google). For example, when you click a link on a Social Media or another website. So the website traffic created by this means is Referral Traffic. It can be converted into conversion.
