Possibly it was some sort of unusual traffic jam or something, I have no idea.SEO ChatterHere is some of the chatter from the forums and social: Our Google traffic and overall numbers have increased noticeably in the previous couple of days, which honestly comes as a surprise for an international travel-planning site. Im happily amazed too, Xmas/ New Year has always been our sites quietest time of year however the last 3 days have been 37.0%, 54.7% and 63.3% yesterday.I spoke too soon … traffic was normal till twelve noon, at which point it dropped off a cliff for the rest of the day … UK ended up -40% by end of the day. Is anybody else seeing something unusual today?Not me … a 79% drop in house page traffic today … search is down 51%. All I can think is it must be a penalty of some sort as my ranking has actually been dropping this month and dropping … quickly nothing left.Im seeing some increase in natural traffic today as well, and anticipate about a 10% overall increase compared to the other day by the end of the day. If it wasnt an upgrade, my site finally exceeded my competitors … Today I see so much junk traffic it feels like buyers forgot Google exits all began they shopping at Amazon or something!Is there another Google update/adjustment going on right now?
Around December 27th and 28th we may have a Google search ranking algorithm shock or quick trembling. I highly question Google pressed out something over the vacations, this recently of December. It might just be some unusual modification that jolted the search results (like that even occurs as I am explaining). There was a spike in SEO chatter in the WebmasterWorld forums beginning late December 26th through December 28th and some, however not all, of the automated Google tracking tools showed blips around December 27th and 28th. It is not uncommon for Googles search engine result to fluctuation without Google to manually press an algorithm update, however this shock appears stronger than regular fluctuations. Perhaps it was some sort of weird bottleneck or something, I have no idea.SEO ChatterHere is some of the chatter from the forums and social: Our Google traffic and overall numbers have increased significantly in the previous couple of days, which honestly comes as a surprise for a worldwide travel-planning website. The development is in line with our standard pre-COVID traffic pattern: a low for the year prior to Christmas, followed by a consistent however sluggish climb towards our yearly summer season peak starting around Christmas or New Years. Im pleasantly shocked too, Xmas/ New Year has always been our sites quietest time of year but the last 3 days have been 37.0%, 54.7% and 63.3% yesterday.I spoke prematurely … traffic was normal till noon, at which point it dropped off a cliff for the rest of the day … UK wound up -40% by end of the day. I am seeing these precipitous drops nearly every day now. Traffic will appear regular up until it just drops to 0-1 per hour for hours on end. This is what my UK traffic looks like this month: Im getting a very huge quantity of traffic coming in from all over the world right now. Its been taking place since morning.I dont know if my G Real-Time has actually gone nuts or if its really happening.Im having an increase of over 5,000%. Is anyone else seeing something bizarre today?Not me … a 79% drop in web page traffic today … search is down 51%. Both USA and UK down 45-48% at 1pm, Canada down 67%, Australia not one see yet, Western Europe nearly absolutely nothing. I have never ever seen anything like it before in my 17 years. All I can think is it needs to be a charge of some sort as my ranking has been dropping this month and dropping … quickly nothing left.Im seeing some boost in organic traffic today also, and anticipate about a 10% total increase compared to the other day by the end of the day. Traffic seems regular. Considering that the majority of this site is informative, there arent any direct conversions, however well see what affiliates have to state in the next few days or weeks.Legitimate traffic. AdSense with high conversion. USA and Europe is the majority. This started today. As typical, it never ever lasts longer than 1 hour. Today its been going on for the entire day. I hope it remains that way.Yes, I won leading positions on a number of terms. When it happens, this usually appears for 1 hour. Today it spans all day. I hope this is irreversible. If it wasnt an upgrade, my website lastly exceeded my competitors … Today I see a lot scrap traffic it feels like purchasers forgot Google exits all started they shopping at Amazon or something!Is there another Google update/adjustment going on right now? Seeing some volatility in my rankings and the trackers appear to be quite hot @rustybrick @glenngabe– Sunny
