I have an affiliate site with a lot of "thin content". I started in 2011, imported a lot of products from xml-feeds and hired some people to write content, category descriptions and so on.
I read all I could find about seo and optimized speed, titles, descriptions...
The website grew slowly but steady, and in 2015 the website made enough money for me and my family to live out of.
But in november 2015 something happened. The traffic took a 50% dive, and ever since, the traffic has decreased every month and is now about 10% of 2015.
Since the dive, I have tried even more articles, link building - I even tried to get SEO help from fiverr.com (don't do that), but nothing has helped.
My question is: Is the age for affiliate sites gone? Should I give up and find other ways to make business?
Does any of you have experience from affiliate sites?
