My traffic got hit starting Wednesday and today (Thursday) but for some odd reason my earnings are still up -- way up. I don't understand why traffic was down. Is there a holiday on Wednesday, October 17?
Well I neglected one set of sites in a niche in order to vastly improve another set of sites in another niche, and I'm paying for it this fall - traffic and earnings on that set are way down from the last two years. Some of them might have been Pandalyzed, but they never did get much traffic, so it's hard to tell. I did expect it; the sites are very thin (mostly placeholders), but it still stings a bit. But as long as they bring in enough to cover their expenses, I'm ok with letting them wait till next year.
I'm still at about 210% of last year (and it's only October) though, and we're working on some improvements for the neglected for next year. Plus some improvements for the way successful ones as well.
And I have an idea for an app too. I just don't know a lot about the whole app market.
