Since January my hits increased nicely every day for the site but then the past week they have dropped by a 3rd for no reason and some of my pages have lost position almost totally. Additionally my old website which I no longer bother with took the same traffic hit of a 3rd also like somehow their traffic is interlinked :confused:, all I have is a backlink from the old site to my new one.
I am not sure why this has happened as all I have been doing is adding content to the new site and hoping for the backlinks to take care of them self via people enjoying my website. I just make posts as a hobby and any clicks through affiliates are just a nice bonus for now. I just want to get some traffic currently and may try to make some decent money from it later on.
Also my bounce rate has slightly increased... from 65% to 73%
I would also like more people to like my sites page on Facebook but I don't get many people liking it at all. I made 1 post on redit which got a great response and lots of thumbs up and comments, then when I submitted another a few days later my posts stopped showing, seemingly my site got blacklisted from redit? I don't understand why redit would hate it enough to block it. The same applied to stumble, I submit something and it gets 0 views.
What is wrong with the site? I don't understand why it keeps getting a bad response. I haven't spammed with it or done anything wrong. I keep advertisement to a minimum and have tried to make the site user friendly and enjoyable. The sites only hovering around 100 hits a day but my goal is to one day reach 1000. Is this achievable through just regular content updates?
I would love to get some feedback on the site from some experienced warriors Also if you find the site humorous you can like it on facebook and enjoy the occasional funny picture in your feed. Thanks.
