Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I would like to get feedback from webmasters who experienced huge drop in traffic because of these (caffeine) changes. We lost almost 40.000 daily visitors.
Site is well established and quite old with lot of natutural backlinks, online since 2004.
What do you think ? Are these changes temporary or permanent ?
Maybe OT but, I found a handful of sites that have taken major hits in the SERPs. They share something in common. Speed. Every single one of them was slow. Their servers were slow to respond and the browsing experience was less than satisfactory.
Is it possible that you've fallen prey to this whole page speed thing?
Oh, the other thing that handful of sites had in common was AdSense. Since it was just a handful of sites, that doesn't really prove anything. Personally, I think I'm close to the target.
Okay, I'll go back outside. :)
After the huge drop in traffic I experienced in the middle of december, things started getting better and better. My traffic increased a lot till...two days ago!
Now, in a span of less than 48 hours my traffic is halved! (seriously!)
All my major keywords have lost from 3 to 10 positions.
Anyone is experiencing something like that?
It looks like Google screwed something or that something went out of control.
I would appreciate if sombody could share his thoughts.
