One of my sites that had basically no visitors at all went viral across a wide range of social media platforms.
Now the traffic is 99% social media (spread out among Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, as far as I can tell).
I got very nervous about this.
This site, despite not getting traffic, usually has a VERY HIGH CPC due to the subject matter, so I began to see some very nice clicks.
The CTR was LOW and has stayed low, which is GOOD, it means these are valid clicks.
Some of those clicks occurred last month and I've yet to have much of anything removed from my final balance earnings, so that is good as well.
I'm just very concerned about it, because I know Google wants to see SE traffic, and to some extent I see why. BUT not all social media traffic is "bad", either!
(As reported in a previous thread, I reported what I thought *might* be invalid clicks when this all first happened and I had NO IDEA what was going on, I reported it to Google cautiously, but heard nothing back.)
a) Is this serious? It's about 500 visitors a day, a couple clicks. How worried should I be? It's probably a very small drop in the bucket in terms of volume, in terms of what Google is looking at everyday in the size of their operation, but it's a nice little income boost for me.
b) If I create a LANDING PAGE with NO ADS ON IT that LEADS to my site, could this cloak the social media traffic source -- or will it just create another problem?
