    One of our major sites is seeing a sudden 50% drop in traffic and I am wondering what is going on. Is is due to this whole Goggle and Yahoo stuff or just spring break.

    If a very large portion of your SE traffic comes from Google, then even a minor position change makes a 'huge' difference in traffic.

    For some obscure reason, one of our sites fluctuates between first, third and nineth position for a specific search term. I can tell when it's at the first position because of the volume, and when it's at position nine, the volume is almost 80% less.

    I've also seen some fairly significant traffic changes from Google (usually starting Monday night) so you may have to wait for next week to see any differences.

    My $.02, anyways.

    What do your log files tell you ....

    That is where I would be looking right now.

    Speaking of log files... anyone know of a decent, cheap, and easy to use log tool? Maybe even something that you can download and view your logs offline to keep things simple?

    bpal: Wouldn't your web host provide you with something to view your stats? I would hate to deal with downloading log files and manully running them to check stats.
