I have observed a downfall in my website traffic (search engine) in last week despite of all the keyword ranking at same position..Is it possible that less number of people are using Google for searches or there is some other factor? (Keywords are related to social networks) Every opinion is appreciated.
Thanks

    Its possible that your site content is not good and may not providing the required information to the visitors. As its a social networking site so to gain more traffic your site should be trustable, you have to create trust policies or might be your competitors are providing better services than yours.

    According to me might be your competitor are doing quality work then you. Try to make your website content are unique and also informative to the readers. Use social networking sites. And also follow your website related followers and helpful to your followers.Your site have no more quality incoming links, try to get more quality incoming link from authority sites.

        Traffic is fluctuated based on search query and you can see impressions in the webmasters tools for your particular keywords. It's happening sometimes in google and its called google dance. You have to enhance the user metrics with your website means to provide the best user experience compare to your other competitive sites. Try to use different sets of keywords and execute them in a proper way.

    Its depends upon many factors like weekend,festival time or any other issue so that people don't get time to surf internet.So don't be panic and keep target some more keywords.More keywords in top position in Google means more traffic.

    You have to expect fluctuations in traffic. We always get a low just before the monthly pay day.

    maybe your keywords has a lot of competition that's why your keywords rank falls down.. check your website using alexa or check your keywords using google keywords tool

    *whew* I'm amazed that at least half the people posting in this thread didn't understand the OPs question at all. St Patrick's day was recently, but that's not really a large holiday.

    People are using the internet just as much this week as last, I think it's probably just due to random fluctuations.

    Well I am not sure but this might be because of less no. of people searching on Google as you are saying that your keywords are at the same position.

    How are you checking your rankings? If you're just looking at search results through Google, make sure you're logged out of Google because Google will personalize your results and show you sites you visit more often (i.e. your site).

    Another reason is that there could be something wrong with your tracking code.

      Basically I use Rank checker by SeoBook. But I checked my ranking via different tools as well and didn't observed much variations.

    This had happend to be as well,

    However, for me it is just the trend, maybe the time of year where the traffic volume is lowest, or sometimes it was just pure coincidence.

    Some keywords are seasonal. Some have high searches during certain months. What you see on Google keyword tool is actually the average for the whole year.

      I'm happy to see spike in my traffic again. Thanks for the suggestion. Although I am not able to conclude anything about my this fluctuation.

    Google has several data centers. if your IP is on a certain data center, then you will see those results... while others, G could be running a split test to get data about which result customers prefer (..in simple terms.. bounce rate,etc).

    I recommend doing something to try and stimulate Googbot.. probably not in the form of blog network links .
