Is anyone else noticing a drop in their traffic this week, but no loss of rankings? I have a <snip> website that used to bring in about 400-450 visitors a day pre-penguin (before april 2012). After penguin the traffic was nearly cut in half, and then I got hit with a manual penalty bring the traffic down to 50-100/visitors a day.
I filed for a reconsideration request and got the manual action lifted 13 days ago. After just a few days traffic slowly started climbing back up.
I know that it is still a bit too soon to see where the true rankings will be, after the manual action was removed, but I am trying to determine why yesterday and today the traffic was so bad when none of the keywords that were ranking previously seemed to drop. If anyone can offer any insight on this it would be greatly appreciated.
