I have been trying to learn as much as I can over the past year about SEO and what helps pages rank better within the search engines. There are just so many factors that it can quickly become overwhelming, and all the "Google algorithm" hoopla doesn't help much either.

After the alleged Google alogrithim update probably after 10 December my traffic has fallen drastically from more then 150 views per day to 50. Traffic was steadily rising but after 10 dec it suddenly plunged showing no signs of recovery. (hubs have remained unchanged).

Hello Everyone, I’m primarily a writer, not a computer buff or web-site designer and in my other attempts at on-line writing I haven’t been trying to earn money, so I haven’t bothered about gaining traffic. I’m patient, I’ve read it takes a while to build up earnings, but...
