    Anyone saw sudden drop in traffic in past 1 or 2 days ?


    I just saw a sudden drop in traffic ie. almost 40% of original, I thought may be server outage I did not notice but today too, same trend, looking further found that for few of the top keywords .. my site is nowhere instead of 1 rank or 2nd rank. I donno hw many other keywords lost place as my site has so many keywords which gives it traffic.

    So, anyone here who also noticed similar loss in ranking or dramatic loss in traffic in past 1 or 2 days ?

    Though I saw a guy shouting similar so I guess google is again doing something.. ???

    Sorry Ricky....I manage about 20 sites and nothing out of the ordinary like rankings suddenly going down.

    definitely give it a good week or two to see if if your traffic comes back. I just had a term that was sitting at result 11 for a good month and then dropped to the 4th page for about a week. that following monday i checked again and it was back at its original spot.

    this type of fluctuation is usually indicative of a weak link base. Look for ways to gain may links from many sources.

    It is kind of discouraging when I see stats and see that years of gain is just lost in a day

    Anyways, will give it more than a week infact
    Actually had similar thing in past with one of my site which used to rank high for few very competitive topic but was already dead bcz of my negligence but it got its ranking back, but had not noticed as was not monitoring that site.
    Hopefully, I will wait here also.

    Ricky,

    I experienced this with one of my sites as well. My site was 4th for some of the keywords I was targeting and now it's nowhere to be found. Based on the changes to my traffic I would say this occurred in the past week or two. I'll let you know if it comes back but it sure is irritating.

    Don't feel alone Ricky.
    Same thing has happened to me.
    I had sites with 7000+ visits a day go to maybe 100 in one day.
    I have looked at everything and cannot figure out why.
    It reminds me of the old saying " Once you figure out the rules, we change the game."
    Good luck to you!

    For every position a site goes down another site gains a position...

    You can't have ALL sites losing rankings.

    nope, i did experienced it too! i have one of my site that was supposed to be at first page of the google serp for a certain keyword then it suddenly dropped to 200+ rank. i tried to figure out what may be the problem and i noticed that i have some weaknesses on my inbound links. what im doing right now is give more effort on looking for more quality backlinks.

    yes. that's right and i agree. building backlinks is very important. also, make sure that the inbound links you collect are quality links.
