Noticed a big drop in views today on my second site.

    Down by 2/3 all of a sudden today on my Dreamworker site.  I checked Moz and found this article, so apparently I'm not the only one with a problem.  Anybody else having an issue?  Here's a link to the article I found.

      Same here on DenGarden, an approximate 10% tailing off in the last.
      day or so. Thought it was just seasonak.

      Yes, I'm seeing a big drop too. If it weren't for having a newly written hub transferred to WanderWisdom which I then added to Flipboard, I'd be down to a very small trickle of traffic. Blue arrows all over the place.

    I never worry about traffic changes after one day.

    If Google is indeed tweaking something, then it can take them a few days to go through the process, so traffic might bomb one day while they do the first part of the job, and rebound two days later when they've done the rest.  So I'd wait and see.

    I just love the language people use. 'Verticals' is a longer word than 'subject' and harder to say. But SEO fiends could not prove they were SEO fiends if they did not use the insider word.

    For the record, my traffic is exactly where it was this time last week, but I have not analysed it by verticals.

    Affirmative. Way down. Maybe it's the weather, nobody online on a gorgeous Friday. (East Coast)
