    Got Hammered with a platform change
    This is a question from my new affiliate too: He moved from one host to another and my traffic ranking went down 1/3 or better. Went from 400K to 600K.
    Anyone have any ideas why?
    The switch happened quickly. I unplugged on the 5th, within 2 hours ,we were back up and running. By the 6th, everything was up and sailing.
    The market I am in is homeschooling, so it could just be a natural economic downturn.
    Yes, I have invited him to join ABW and he will be doing so soon!

    I'm confused - are you speaking for someone else?

    I am speaking for someone else. He's a new Magic Cabin affiliate who hasn't joined ABW yet. I told him I would ask his question for him.
    He's had a website for years, but has just recently entered the world of Affiliate Marketing. I posted a question for him about microsites, so if you have any knowledge of that, please post!
    Thanks!
    Sorry for the confusion!

    The problem was that the site was actually unplugged. If the site was moved correctly (IE. - add the nameservers and have the new host up and running while you transition off the old host and allow the DNS to propagate, SE bots etc)

    If nothing else changed, everything should bounce back* once everything adjusts accordingly

    * bouncing back meaning if those levels were consistent traffic numbers and not just a good month's numbers.
    Continued Success,
