Blog Stats Have Dropped Dramatically

  1. My blog: aclassblog.wordpress.com has been averaging 1000-1200 hits a day for the past 2 years. In the last couple of weeks, my readership has dropped dramatically to around 400 hits a day. Why would the amount of visitors to my blog, which was very consistent for a long time, drop by over 50% in the matter of a week? I'm wondering if it's anything I've done or if it's a WordPress issue? Any help would be great because I'm completely out of ideas.

    The blog I need help with is aclassblog.wordpress.com.

  2. Do you have an image rich blog? If so, are all of the images yours?
    Or are your using images without receiving the copyright holder's permission to use them?
    If you do have an image rich blog then do your posts contain nothing but images ie. no text?
    Is all the content in the blog original or has it been published elsewhere?

    Those are rhetorical questions. Please don't post answers to them here as we don't assist with search engine issues. They are between bloggers and search engines. However, the answers to those questions may assist you to determine what happened to your traffic. http://en.support.wordpress.com/search-engines/
