Google traffic remained the same, so it doesn't seem to be a seasonal drop for our business.
My guess would be that Yahoo has launched their redesigned homepage on a large scale in the US last week, and it doesn't convert to searches as well as the old one used to.
Did anyone else notice this?
i am confused for it
welcome to the yahoo-yoyo. my site went missing a month ago. i contacted Y! support and asked them to check. didn't get a reply but my site suddenly came back at #50. then it went up to #38. two days ago, i added an rss feed at Yahoo's mySites. yesterday, my site went missing again.
am i worried? no... not anymore. this is the Yahoo YoYo. I've given up worrying. if your site is white-hat, give it some time before your contact them.
But the weird thing is that the search rankings for my site haven't changed at all. Our pages still rank very well. I was convinced that it happened because the new Yahoo homepage simply discourages people from searching (there's more original content on it). But if noone else noticed the referal drop, I guess it must be something else.
