Major Drop in Google Traffic

Discussion in 'Google' started by johnrulz20032003, Oct 26, 2007.

    As of October 10, I was getting almost 1,500 unique hits from Google. Then gradually my traffic from google dropped. It was really confusing. At first I thought that it was one of those days when my traffic would dip then go back up again. But this time traffic from google decreased gradually and now it has stabilized at around 500 visitors/day from 1000 visitors per day. I was wondering if any of you could suggest what to do. Thanks in advance. :)

    Do you track specific keywords that you think you did well previously? Try to use those keywords in Google search and see if there is any difference.

    Was it a big mistake that I didn't track keywords? hehe.

    Well since I couldn't figure out how to use the DP tool that you suggested, I consulted my google analytics report. I compared my data during the times when my site was getting high traffic and my today from today. I noticed that several keywords brought me many visitors in the past and now these keywords brought zero traffic. So I'm guessing my keyword rankings did drop. Or I am thinking maybe it's a seasonal thing. The schools here are currently on a semestral break and most keywords are homework related like researches on literature and Filipino writers. So I'm thinking maybe it'll just go back. What do you guys think? I really appreciate any help you could give. Thanks.

    Yes, all my sites are down in Google Visits big time. Almost non existant now. I am also noticing that the sites with PR 2/3 are ahead in the SERPS now.

    No I dont sell links. I have kontera and adsense on my site. Yesterday I noticed that my PR went up from 1 to 4. My other sites which does not have any backlinks now has a pr of 2 from N/A. This is all so confusing. My adsense earnings also dropped relative to the drop in visitors. What made it even more confusing was the chaos in adsense reporting.

    My google activity is increasing, but the serp referrers isn't changing much. I still get around 1000 from Google and the same from Yahoo, but the adsense CPC has really changed in my favor.

    So while I see nominal increases in Google's referrers it's making a much bigger impact when considering my adsense results.

    My keywords are kinda seasonal, fitness related. Often more in January and in summer than the rest of the year combined.

    No I didn't buy any links.

    I am hoping that this is all due to the semestral break in schools here. Additionally, we're having an almost 1 week holiday. So I'm thinking maybe normal traffic would come back on Nov. 5th. Thanks for all the replies guys.

    Don't you know what rankings had these words that brought you traffic before? Compare them with the ones they have today and you'll find out if you lost your positions in SERPs or not. Google Webmasters will help you with this :)
