Every blogger wants their stuff to be read and that means maximising visits to the site.
My blog has more than 200 articles posted on it and you folks out there do seem to enjoy it. But suddenly the river of hits referred by Google searches has dropped to a gurgle. Why could this be?
I used to get lots of hits from Yahoo too but these suddenly fell away to a trickle and then last week my Google hits as good as stopped. Previously I was getting a total of 200 hits a day but that has now halved.
Previously if I did an appropriate Google search, my Blogspot would appear very high up but now it only does if the search is vey specific.
Can anyone tell my why this might be and if there's anything I can do about it?
Other bloggers have lots of little icons all over their blogs, I guess to maximise traffic but I have no idea what I should do to this end. Again I need help!
I track the referrals on my magic 'sitemeter' and it could be that it is simply failing to record referrals that are actually being received... though I think that's unlikely.
To me it's a mysterious world so can anyone enlighten me, please?
