I hope someone with some good to expert knowledge in SEO can help me with this. It is a little complicated, so it could pose a challenge for some to answer:
The basic question is: could the new mobile version of my website be impacting my SEO? Let me give you some basic facts around this:
-My website often ranks first in its niche on Google, and has been online since Mar. 1999
-In March 2009, I introduced a new mobile version of my website, and created a subdirectory for it (m.mysite.com)
-Now, a year later, when I search for my niche on Google, I get some strange and different results. For example, I may see the mobile version of my website as one of the results, but not the actual website.
-I may see the music section of my website on the first results page, and my actual website as a sub-result of the music section.
-Looking at Google Anaylytics, you can clearly see an almost 10% decrease from the week before to the week after the mobile site was introduced, in the number of visits to my home page. And it is on almost constant decline.
I am not sure if there is a third factor to account for this, and if there is, then the mobile version is just a coincidence, and has nothing to do with the declining number of visits to my home page.
Can anyone help, or suggest anything from the facts I stated above please?
