If you give repair work a bit of a try, the experience might shine a light on something new that you can take forward, even if you can't fix it all the way.
Oh wait! It was Thursday, the day they turn off the internet for cleaning.
Something substantial appears to have rolled through my niche today, big drop in decent referrals.

And what we see looks very similar to errors while changing the system.
So its temporary, right?
How can inventor of a niche be gone?
The pattern that I struggle with is little-by-little ranking drops that just keep going. After a couple months, it's as much of a traffic hit as a fat penalty or a major algo change, but it's almost impossible to pin this little-by-little "traffic erosion" down to any one date.
I'm now involved with two sites that have been showing this pattern over the past 3 months. Any ideas what this kind of thing represents?
