Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I have just been reviewing my stats and noticed two different sites with massive gains in organic traffic. Has anybody else noticed this today(Aug 30th)?
The second site is rather new, and had just been moved over to a new server.
The first site has regained a good chumk of the traffic that it first lost at the end of November 2006.
The google gods just seem to come and go as they please.
Anyone else notice anything?
Thank Google for trusting my site, keep updated and get TrustRank.
Best wishes to all.
It looked to me like a new set of serps Thursday with changes, some sites up some down and by late Friday/Sat it had rolled back.
The serps now look like the old serps of a few weeks back - so i cant see how this is an update?
unless you are seeing something im not?
Although this is great, I don't believe that it will last long. I've seen gains like these a few times before. After a week traffic always went back to normal again.
Still looks like some kind of roll back to me as the serps changed on Thursday with some sites moving up and some out of the index and currently it looks the same as it was before but time will tell?.
You wonder if they rolled out improved serps on Thursday and found that because they were more on target perhaps adwords income went down so they reversed it?.
Are you seeing increases on long tail or short searches?
Also, isnt a green bar update due soon?
Aug 29th: 3900 google organic referrals
We're on a run rate today to break 30k. I'm not complaining but it's mostly low-quality traffic. Our pages/visit average has dropped from 7.16 on the 29th of August to 2.25 yesterday. (though the bounce rate has improved so who knows, maybe it's "more efficient" traffic?)
Problem is, many people don't analyze their data down to this level - never understood why not, I must say.
According to G Analytics, As of noon PDT today we're at 18,038 google organic referrals across 14,500 search terms to 8,479 landing pages. On Aug 29th we had 3,813 visits across 3,064 different search terms to 2,159 landing pages.
I'm wondering if there has been a change in the supplemental listings so web sites with lots of pages which might have been supplimental before are now receiving traffic.
My site has about 50,000 pages, how about yours?
Yesterday's Google referrals:
43,000 visits across 32,300 keywords to 15,394 landing pages.
As of 2:00 am last night it looks like things have dropped back to their August 27th levels which isn't such a bad thing.
The new traffic is from long tail keywords from a variety of pages.
