Google Traffic Problem - Help Please!!!!

by Frank Ayres 10 replies
I have a site that was earning me lots of $'s a month using organic traffic, for the last 3 days i havent made anything at all.

I have checked and on the 6th August Google Bot visitied my site.
It still has the pages indexed but traffic has died.

Here are the stats for august and as you can see the traffic is getting lower and lower since 6th

01 Aug 2008 648
02 Aug 2008 701
03 Aug 2008 293
04 Aug 2008 427
05 Aug 2008 820
06 Aug 2008 803
07 Aug 2008 230
08 Aug 2008 54
09 Aug 2008 42

The site is a PR 4

    Do you know exactly where your traffic was coming from? and how it was converting.

    Without any details its impossible to know why something is not working or broken

        Have you been using Google analytics?

        You have to know exactly where your traffic comes from in order to fix the problem.

        Have you checked your Google rankings? See where you stand on the particular keywords people used to find your site and buy (Use your cpanel stats & Google search)

        You might have just lost your previous rankings or it can simply be that your regular buyers just haven't been online for a few days.

          Hi spuds,

          showing only that amount of information makes it impossible for anyone to help you with your site.

          it could be one of a million problems..

          has your site been delisted?

          How many backlinks have you created to this site?

          All sites go into google easily, get traffic.. the trick is learning how to keep it ranking highly..

          your example above looks like you found a good niche with a new website, and done no work to it since.. its just a guestimate, though since you didn't provide any more info all we can do is make guesses..

          cheers

          Pete

              What were your top traffic search terms before the drop in traffic? (No need to publish them here if you don't want, but you need to know them yourself). What were your google rankings for those terms? What are your rankings for those terms now?

              One of my squidoo lenses which was ranked #4 for its term is now down on page 3 and the traffic has dropped from over 100/day to less than 10. Google is doing a lot of rearranging of SERP rankings right now but who knows whether they will stay that way or change again.

                Dear Spud;


                I have the EXACT same problem - I enjoyed a #1 to #4 spot on google for my top keywords for THREE YEARS and made a Lot of $$ and then lost it all over night.

                I'm still blue over it. I know WHY now but I don't (can't, not techie enough) to fix it. :{

              try searching google using the format site:yourdomain.com
              Don't leave a space between the colon and your domain name. If you have been delisted you will get a message saying no pages found.
              It has happened to a lot of my adsense sites. I haven't the time nor patience to figure out why but is seems likely to be (in my case) links to some out of the box adsense sites.

                  I've given up relying on Google now. As soon as any one of my sites start doing well in Google it inexplicably dies off sooner or later. My sites are 100% white hat and I've no idea what the problems are.
