    :eek:
    On Friday May 26 our traffic went down by about 70% with a corresponding decrease in business. Our Google ranking is the same and ranking for keywords seems to be about the same.
    SEMrush
    Can anyone tell us what the cause of this might be?

    If you have a lot of traffic from the states it is likely because it is a holiday weekend here, and the end of the school year for many.

    Thanks Cricket but our traffic comes from all around the world and we have not seen this sort of drop before.

    Just pointing out that it is unlikely to be the holiday weekend in the US that has caused the traffic drop!
