    Drop in Search Queries


    Google Webmaster Tools is showing a marked decrees in Search Queries over the last month. It is not a sudden drop, but a clear decline that does not seemed to have bottomed out. There are no messages in Webmaster Tools so I am not aware of any penalties. Just a clear, steady decrease from the past month. How do I find out what to attribute this to so that I might correct it.

    Thanks
    Peter

    Peter, this could be any number of things. I would first start by looking if the average ranking also decreased. If so then you can be sure that its a domain wide issue. Then I would focus more granular to see what terms are dropping....how are those terms related? Do any certain pages drop more than others? All of these questions can get you closer to understanding the cause.

    Thanks for the reply Joe. As of sometime around March 19th all queries have been on a downward path. The rankings change is a uniform red. Some terms are showing more of a decrease than others, but all are showing a decrees in rankings. Anywhere from 0.4 to 3.0.

    Thanks,
    Peter
