October 11th, 2005, 01:45 PM #1Recovering Google Traffic
I've been seeing quite a bit of Google recovery lately. Just curious if others are seeing the same. My last big drop was back in December and since then I've been adding extensive value to my sites. I guess it's paying off because I'm starting to climb back into 2004 traffic levels when Google was sending traffic to anybody with a PR5.
Here is one of my sites that was doing extremely well back in 2004 because of Google. Unfortunately the site wasn't sticky enough at the time, so I lost it all in August. Had a short spurt in December and here we are today. This chart represents traffic coming directly from Google. It doesn't represent my overall traffic levels.
The incline is much slower this year, but it's very steady. I can only hope that a slow incline won't result in a sharp decline. Fortunately I've got thousands of return visitors and even without this Google traffic I'll still keep the majority of my traffic.
In contrast, here is my traffic from April 2004 to the end of December. The changes were much sharper back then because the site didn't have an established userbase:

My Googliest site has been on a steady increase since this june. I had a dip during the first part of last month but is is rebounding now and I can only hope it is going to stay.
Unfortunately I have no idea how many return visitors I get cuz I don't have that kind of stats program. I haven't paid so much attention to the bookmark stat in awstats since I've never really understood how it can track that.Suz~~GearGirl~~

Now for the BIG question:
Are they *buying* (or clicking AdSense/Yahoo ads)? If revenue isn't increasing as much as the traffic, something's still wrong...There is no knowledge that is not power. ~Hemingway

Looks like just a favorable algo change, for once.
By Murphy's Law, the timing is such that making massive site changes in response to CJ could munge things up for my ranks. Not that I'm going to worry about it. After all, it took feeding Google about 300,000 404s (when I PHPized my biggest sites without using .htaccess, causing all-new paths for everything) to get them to notice my sites again the last time...There is no knowledge that is not power. ~Hemingway

I have lost 66% percent of my Google traffic in the space of a month. This is due to a slip in rankings but most importantly because a major drop in Googlebot activity (down 500%). It's a rough period but sales have conversions have remained ok, probably because the increase in spending coming up to Q4.Keep on learning, keep on earning. :fan:
