Similiar trend here Tom (travel site)
Same here. Updated 30+ pages since the Google dance finished, all the new pages are showing up in MSN, none showing in Google.
Yup same here. Good 20% down from the new index
Good Point Dazz.
I image we'll see quite a decline in traffic in the coming weeks.
War and Basketball?
Also down 30%
I have an editorial "content site" about European travel that's supported mostly by affiliate sales. Traffic yesterday was down 16-17% from the previous two Mondays, and today (Tuesday) is also looking a bit slow. I'm guessing the impending war is one reason for my modest drop in traffic, but another reason may be the number of U.S. colleges and universities that are having spring break.
Affiliate sales are still strong--down a little, maybe, but noticeably higher than in February.
I certainly can't blame any traffic drop on Google, which continues to provide about the same percentage of my referrals as usual.
Hi - I can't seem to create new topic!
I am seeing click throughs on all results from www.google.com e.g do a search on any term and href on tile says something like:
Can anyone else confirm this?
No change here -- in fact a tiny rise. My subject is not a million miles away from my username. Maybe people are still needing to chill out.
Likewise MeditationMan, my hits are slightly up. And likewise, my site theme is akin to my username.
Traffics gone up, orders down :( I've been chatting to a few businesses and there’re quite so maybe time of year or worries over war
Traffic is pretty close to unchanged from last month, but they should be up given my improvements in the SERPs.
The daily numbers are behaving totally different than in the past though. Yesterday the numbers where fairly normal for a Monday till about 2 hours before the shrub gave his speech and everything just about stopped.
Today is down around 15% from normal.
My traffic is up about 70% since the previous Google update. A lot of content as well as incoming links were added between the January and February crawls, and a moderate amount was added just before this past crawl, so I'm curious to see if I'll notice any change after the next update.
Thanks for the input.
For those of you that have seen a decrease in hits/visitors are you attributing it to less overall web traffic (due to economics or the threat of war) or to page rankings changing in the latest Google update?
My travel related site:
Google Update: 30% Up
Yesterday: 40% Down
Traffic today has been virtually non existent :(
Although saying that I have had some good sales today :)
Even war doesn't stop people having to fix there car :)
Site traffic up for me, 4 information sites and all doing well :)
Up by about 20% this month on average.
Mental Health related site here so we're actually up this month. The past day or so I saw a very small drop. I expect most of the changes we're all seeing are war related.
Similar situation with two of our travel related sites.
One was running at about 600 unique visitors per day and the other 400 per day, then Tuesday/Wednesday the 600 site dropped to around 400 and the other upped to about 500! Weird.
My traffic is up about 10% this month. No good explaination, but last Google update did help.
Up around 40% - but I've been promoting like crazy. I don't think much of it can be attributed to Google, as the site didn't move a heck of an amount up the SERPs.
Traffic down about 10% this week. Looking at the sector as a whole it also is down by the same so nothing to worry about i hope!
I am worrying plenty! Traffic is slightly lower than usual, but inquiries have completely stopped. I mean zero inquiries in the past two days. Somehow, I don't think it is a coincidence that they stopped coming in after the President made his 48 hour deadline announcement.
People are afraid to invest in a vacation or book flights with the threat of terrorism hanging over their heads. The fact that so many of the big airlines are in serious financial trouble also doesn't help in the least. This doesn't bode well for the travel/vacation industry at all!
Our traffic was on track to be up this month, but over the last couple of days it's definitely slowed down about 20%.
my traffic is up...but I have also improved recently in many keyword strings.
Conversions are are bit low though.
Traffic trending up, even continuing over past few days (have done very extensive tweaking past two months).
I have a Travel Site as well, our hits are trending upward today.
