    Shopping Cart Google Ranking Issue


    I have an ecommerce site that has been indexed since Feb. 04. Since Feb.04 Unique Visitor traffic has slowly increased to approx. 700 Unique visitors per day. We were updating our catalog and disabled all "add to shopping cart" buttons and did not sell product for approx. 2 months during the update. Our traffic increased from 700 Unique visitors per day to over 3,000.

    When we relaunched the store the traffic has been slowely dropping and currently is around 800 U.V.

    Nothing changed on the site except the home page flash intro was replaced with text saying we will be closed during the update and the shopping cart button was removed.

    Is any of this related? Whats the fix?

    It doesn't sound related, but i I saw a 4-fold drop in traffic when I added Flash back onto my homepage, I would certainly try removing it (replace with text and/or a graphic) and see what happens.
