"- How much traffic does the graph represent?"
Not HUGE traffic. I was getting about 750 unique visitors a day. Now it is down to around 450 per day. (I know, I need a better business model... I'm working on it.)
- Which pages took a hit? Is the drop sitewide to all pages equally or are a handful of pages representative of more than 50% of the drop?
For the most part, it was pretty much equal across ecommerce (all categories) and our blog (all categories and pages).
There were a couple of pages on our blog where it went from one landing a day to, maybe, 15 landings a day, or something like that. But for the most part, it was all equal drops in traffic.
"- Is this all web traffic or does the graph have image traffic included? Image search is a different beast, do you have a chart for each over the same period?"
I don't really know how to view image search traffic in google analytics, so I tried using this report that was created by Annie Cushing
If I compare image search from the May 2013 to Apr 2013, then traffic from image search is down 17%
If I compare image search from May 2013 with image search from May 2012, it is down NEALY 80%!
However, I do not know how well that report actually tracks image search traffic. From what I understand, google frequently changes the referrer for image search, so it just might be that report that I got doesn't track it very well for this year...
