Rambling thoughts on my stats

In looking at my stats, it appears that I’m getting a huge amount of my traffic from search engines. So…does this mean that my site is either:

* Excellently positioned to gain reasonable-to-high rankings on a wide variety of keywords, or…

* Valuless, in that visitors from search engines are only interested in one thing and will click past me once they realize I don’t have it?

So that second one brings me to a thought: which type of visitor has more value, the one who comes in from pure search results or the one who follows a link from another site? At first instinct I’d say the latter, by a wide margin, but why? Aren’t those who click thru to me from a blog following a topic-based path, just as those from search engines?
