Anyone else notice a drop in Caloriebee traffic? Rankings have also taken a big hit. From #4 for a term for at least 5 years to #92 since last night. This is the first time it dropped below #5 and until over a year ago it was #2 for a few years.
This is in line with the new June update, so I'm wondering if it's just me or if it's across the site.
I decided to check SEMRush to see if there has been a hit and Caloriebee took a beating. Down near 50% are the estimates compared to last month. Also, SEMRush updates keyword rankings on it's own timeline, so this drop of 48% is considering that some keywords that are hit are not updated yet, so the drop is a lot more than this estimate. I have also attached a screenshot of dengarden and I would think this update has hit health sites as all the recent updates.
Youmemindbody seems to be doing better though. What are the other health based sites?
Thanks for posting this thread lobobrandon.
My DenGarden hubs are down by 50% in the last 24 hours. I assumed it was because they are seasonal, but now I'm guessing it's the Google update.
I don't have anything on CalorieBee but my WeHaveKids traffic is BAD. Pretty steady everywhere else though for me.
Sorry, I'm posting three times in a row but do you think this looks like an algo update? It is the beginning of the month and we haven't had one (that I've noticed) in a while.
Oh geeze, I totally missed it. Well, my traffic always takes a temporary hit after an update. The only time I didn't fully recover was that Medic Fix last summer.
Yeah, same here. But I track my main keywords using a tool and this is the first time they've dropped from #4 to 90+
Lots of sites are being affected by Google's Core June 2019 update. More details here. https://searchengineland.com/early-data … ers-317861
Just logged on to see my wehavekids articles have taken a nose dive :-(
On the upside some of my own sites are doing well but I think that is just because of Eid.
My website appears to be unaffected. I knew there was an advantage to having a no name, obscure website that nobody knows or cares about.
Same here, nothing from nothing leaves nothing
I noticed a 20 per cent drop a couple of days ago, but Owlcation and Dengarden seem to have held up reasonably well, so I am not suffering that badly.
Lol, all my site view updates are showing zero at the moment. That's an issue with updation, I understand. However, google adsense is showing the same number of hits. In fact, there is a 22% increase in views. That said, I am not sure if the adsense views are updated or not. Anyway, hope things are fine!
Wehavekids traffic decimated [cry].
Same on my pregnancy site. I'm thinking of moving all product pages and pages with affiliate links to a separate site.
Sorry to hear that. Might not be product related but maybe an experiment will help you decide.
I think it would be worth looking into some top ranking websites and see what they have in common that you do not have. It could even be backlinks from "reputable" sources.
Looks like Google is continuing to ramp up their slaughter of anything even remotely medical that is not written by .gov or well-known medical companies. I threw in the towel on writing anything medical awhile ago for just this reason.
Yep it's always worth an experiment.
Some good incoming links would be very nice. Why do google's algo's always seem to squeeze out the little guy in favor of sites with massive budgets?! Annoying!
I would think it's because the folk with massive budgets have a lot of paid backlinks from good places, not some crap.
You are vested in the notion that SEO works.
If you want to approach the truth (however reluctantly) I would recommend disindentification.
Good luck with a Google search on that term, by the way, lol. You need to go back to the source...
Sadly, I cannot provide a link. The internet is cr p for anything that matters.
Search Engines are algorithms, figuring out how this algorithm works and using it to your advantage is SEO. If someone thinks SEO does not work they do not know that search engines are built on algorithms or they do not know what an algorithm is.
Disindentification: https://www.diamondapproach.org/glossar … tification
Did we just have a spiritual discussion? Disidentification and all....
I didn't realize I had posted that comment, lol. I was trying to say something about Brandon's faith in offsite SEO, when I thought I had better check that "disidentification" still had the meaning I remembered. Which it didn't.
Anyway, I thought I had given up on the task and hit cancel, but obviously not.
I will award myself ten out of ten for idiocy.
Well, you are not completely wrong.
A Harvard study shows that a random number generator can be influenced to generate the number that a person wants. The trick here is the power of intent.
And not only that but the chances of the intended number increases about 25% (I don't remember the exact numbers) when two people in Love expect the same number to flash.
Nobody knows how it happens. The algorithms should not permit it and yet something inside us is so powerful to override the algo.... As I said, you are not completely wrong...
Disidentification - anybody?
Interesting. What is this study called? A link maybe?
The first I read this was in Anthony Robbin's "Awaken the Giant Within". This was 15 years back when I was doing my MBA. Later, as our college had Harvard Business Review access, we saw the actual study. So, that's as far as I remember. However, if you are really interested then you should get that book by Anthony Robbins.
Besides, it is not to say SEO does not work , but to mean that the power of intention is so strong that it can override things that we think cannot be done.
Take a look at this video where Deepak Chopra is doing an experiment and showing Oprah Winfrey the power of her mind... That's the closest I could give you today:
Lastly, disidentification is a very interesting fact, which I personally feel all humans should go through. In fact, your link itself is more than enough. Do read and you will see what Will Apse was saying earlier.
Thanks for the recommendation and the link. Watching it now.
My argument about SEO working or not is two fold: it's an algorithm and experiments under controlled conditions with just one variable at a time have shown that some things affect rankings.
I came across it in the Jungian connection where it has a particular meaning.
But then I took it for my own meaning, largely to do with disinvesting in stuff like nationalism, slavish allegiance to ideologies.
I like perspectives these days. They do not need to add up to a coherent world view. They just need to add dimensions to an understanding of an issue.
This is more a Derrida way of looking at stuff.
There are around 200 pages on wehavekids with Amazon capsules.
There are around 300 pages on owlcation with same.
Owlcation seems to doing okay.

Just logging in now after being gone for several weeks. I don't have anything on Caloriebee, but all my articles have taken major hits. Worse being wehavekids and Owlcation. My top article (Owlcation) lost over 400 daily views. Whether that is just today or has been like this for weeks I don't know. I'm assuming for awhile since there is no blue arrow.
My traffic has dropped 10% just this week alone. My traffic has been dropping every week since March. I haven't recovered at all. I'm down over 30% so far, from where I started the year at.

Has anyone else seen a dramatic decrease in their hub traffic?Where has all the traffic gone? Has anyone else seen a dramatic (as in 50% or more) drop in traffic over the last week or so?

I get quite a bit of traffic from Google, but for some odd reason I get nothing at all from Yahoo or MSN. I even took the time to submit a couple of hubs to both sites and still nothing.I was just wondering if its just me or if it is common among hubbers? Any ideas on how to get the Yahoo bots...

My traffic statistics were updated 36 hours ago. Did this happen to anyone else?

My CTR at Hubpages has been taking a nosedive, about half from normal. I decided to not panic, figuring Hubpages was just experimenting with ad placements or something similar.However, it's been a month now, and still my click-thrus are way below my normal rate. I thought maybe it was because of...

I was walking down the street this morning when I suddenly got a real bad craving for a boiled egg. I could almost taste it. There was no reason for this to happen and I haven't had a boiled egg in weeks. Anyone else get weird cravings?
