Have any of you sorted out the new unspoken rules of good SEO and keyword analysis?
Since January my traffic is down from 600 views a day to around 20, with a matching drop in income.
Everything I learned about SEO and content writing is now wrong. My best articles still pull the most traffic, but they're all down from their previous first page of Google status.
Have any of you sorted out the new rules of good SEO and keyword analysis? Before you mention quality, let me tell you about the article I rewrote and beefed up. Yep, it gets slightly fewer views now. Some of you out there are trying to get back the views and the revenue you've lost. How are you tackling it?
At this point, I'm not sure anybody knows what to do. Many of us have had terrible drops in traffic and income, and most of it seems to be due to the latest Panda update.
However, I do not feel that all of the switching back and forth between domains has helped things.
Online writing is a real can of worms, and there are many reasons aside from quality that can affect people's stats.
Read the forums, read HPs blogs, follow the guidelines...that's about all anybody can do right now.
I believe the hit is so bad that it will take many months to recover. As the cowboys used to say...honey, grab another hunk of hair and just hang on!
In all honesty, right now I'm not tackling it at all. Until the dust settles, I'm not putting in a boatload of time and energy revamping or rewriting only to find out that what I've already done was the wrong thing to do. My traffic is down too, by at least 70% since February. I'm actually getting less views per day right now than I was at this time last year when I'd only been here for four months. Because of the decline and drop in revenue for me, I've put HubPages on the far back burner and I'm no longer publishing Hubs like I used to, so that could be part of my issue.
What's weird is that my blogs haven't taken traffic hits and I haven't updated some of them in a very long time.
I am afraid, most of us are in the same boat. My traffic is also down greatly since a long time. In spite of following all suggestions recommended by HP and fellow hubbers, SEO and keyword etc., traffic does not seem to improve. The SEO thing seems to change every other day. Most of the time goes in understanding new rules and promotions and the actual writing suffers.
We can just wait and hope for the things to improve.
