Anyway, I've just be struggling for the last month to get sales. I had a high for my sales for the month of June. In July, Google decided to sandbox one of my sites. Well, I assume the term is sandboxed. All the pages are indexed, except I don't get any traffic. None of my long tails rank in the top 10. Even the unique name for the site doesn't come in the top 10, some articles on EZA rank for it because the name is in the resource box.
But that is besides the point.
The point is my other site has really picked up the slack after the sandboxing. A lot more SE traffic.
My main traffic sources come from article directories and the search engines. I do some web 2.0 stuff too, but that doesn't really give long lasting traffic.
It just seems lately that I've been struggling to get sales. I get them though, it's just that I have to work twice as hard for them. Like, today, my clicks to my sponsors have gone up by a good 50% since June, yet my sales have gone down.
I'm not sure if this is part of the summer low that is experienced or what, but it's just demoralizing.
I'm sorry if this comes off as whining. I'm action oriented, but it just seems nothing is making it consistent.
