Hi there, Adder:
Thanks so much for the suggestion to go back and look at my traffic and compare it with the SEO moz chart.
- March 23, 2012 (Panda 3.4): Drop of 32% in visits according to Google Analytics
Apr 19, 2012 (Panda 3.5) Another drop - this time about 22% in visits from google.
From May 1 2012 through Dec 14th, it is pretty smooth, but it is definitely a slight DOWNWARD angle. Dec 14th saw a 22% drop in traffic, but that is to be expected because of seasonality (most people finished up their online shopping around then).
Things were improving slightly (up about 6%) over the late January through Early March period of 2013, but then the graph looks like a saw tooth wave from about mid March until late April.
Then it looks like successive drops on:
May 1, 2013 (No known update)
May 8, 2013 (Phantom Update)
May 21st / 22nd (Penguin 2.0)
Wow! I did not realize that google HATED my site so much!
If I compare the Month of June, 2013 with my BEST month (which was January 2012), I am down 77% off my busiest month.
Wow... this has been an eye opener... I don't even know what to say...
