Googel and the sudden drop of traffic
Google!!! Why have you abandoned my blog? Why are not sending visitors anymore? What have I done to you?!
Now, you must be thinking that I’m crazy shouting at a search engine but I’d like to share with you something that happened on June 12 (google traffic dropped on June 12). My traffic suddenly dropped nearly to half!
Statistics on the Googel Traffic Drop / Google Traffic Drop
Here are more evidences of the Googol Traffic Drop.
Do you see that? Do you see my traffic that looks like a mountain turn into a flat plain in just one day?
For June, Google Traffic is 14% while Yahoo Traffic is 55%. While in May, Google Traffic was 31.20% while Yahoo Traffic was 39.80%. It has really been a big shift in the balance of traffic between these two search engines.
Possible Reasons I’ve thought of since the drop
At first, I thought that it was because I was not blogging and writing as much that is why my traffic dropped. So I said to myself, ok, this is just a reminder from Googel that I should write some more so I started writing again but my traffic is still not back to where it used to be. Although I’ve seen some improvements but it is still not enough. I want to be back to where my traffic used to be.
Another reason I’ve thought of is that I got penalized by big momma Googol for having peyd posts. Well, guilty as charged but it has been a while since my last peyd post. (I’m guilty of writing a few of them earlier today as I missed writing them). But it is not the first time for me to do stuffs like this and I’ve already been punished by receiving an EGG ( 0 ) for my page rank. Isn’t that enough already? Does Gogle have to make your blogging life miserable just for that ? I don’t think so.
It’s happening to everybody!
So I did more research about it using Googel Search and found out that I was not alone. Many people have been hit by this weird Google algo tweak that some even lost 90% of their traffic (count me in there). I wonder what is happening.
How about you ? Have you noticed a massive drop in your search engine traffic from Google? Please share your experiences whether you have or did not have. Thank you. 🙂
Btw, you might find a lot of typos for the word Google, I did it on purpose. ^_^
