I am fairly new to the IM game but feel that I have been making some good progress lately.
Anyway, yesterday something really odd happened. My best site, a lawn mower review site lost basically all of its traffic literally over night. All my visitors came from about 80 different long tail keywords with five of them being responsible for 80% of the traffic.
From constant 60 - 90 daily visitors over a period if three weeks, first down to 12, then down to 3.
The point is that I have not the slightest idea what this could have been caused by.
- I have not done any backlinking yet so it is utterly impossible that Google has penalized me for a too aggressive strategy.
- I have written some real quality content that is actually helpful to people.
- Bounce rate and average time spent on my site look absolutely acceptable, too.
- I have not made any changes to the website
Is it possible that all this has to do with the fact that my site is quite new still? It is about one month old now.
Any suggestions on how to deal with this issue will be received with a smile! Thanks in advance, guys.
