Our site is Q&A, in a specialised field. We use our own custom software, it's similar to stack. Our bounce rate is 55%, which is good for our industry.
Over the last 3 weeks we've lost about 30,000 people a day.
What has changed in the last 3 weeks, what are the new signals? We grew throughout all the panda/penguin stuff.
We don't have VCs or any other backing, this is a real project done by real people. We only run adsense to support it (down 50%).
We've never used any blackhat techniques or tricks. We've followed all suggestions by Cutts and crew since the googleguy days.
We don't track /analyse / focus on SEO / focus on links / we simply focus on content and inovation- it's paid off until this month.
Any idea what algo we might have tripped? Looks like it's time to get back into SEO :(
