Traffic decreasing, views disappearing

  1. savorysaltysweet

    For the past 18 months, my site has been experiencing very steady (albeit not rocket-like) growth. My views have increased every single month, with traffic increasing by 100% about every 5 or 6 months. Until July, that is, when traffic suddenly began to decrease very rapidly. Now my views are down over 25% overall since July, even though my comments have increased, and I have picked up new subscribers and received a few good write-ups elsewhere that brought me new traffic.

    Does anyone know why this may be happening? Is anyone else experiencing a very sudden drop in views for unknown reasons? My views are going down every single day, and I can't seem to do anything to stop it. Yesterday my traffic was half of what is used to be, and I am starting to feel as though all my work is for naught. Does anyone have any ideas about what might be going on?

    The blog I need help with is savorysaltysweet.com.

  2. Can we get some hard numbers on that? The difference between 100 and 50 may feel like a huge change, but it's not, when compared to the difference between 1000 and 500.

  3. Id everything you publish on your WordPress.com blog all original content and is your WordPress.com blog the only place that content is published?

  4. Id was meant to be "Is"

    My site's views in July were 7,678. October's views are slated to end up being around 5,600. My site's views were by no means astonishingly huge, but they were growly steadily every single day (up until recently).

    My contest is all original, yes. The content on my site is only published on my site. I am a food writer and I write for other places, but that content is totally separate from the content on my own site.

    Just checking in to try and bump this topic up a bit. Anyone else having a similar problem, or is it just a sad fluke that is specific to my site?

  7. Please don't bump your threads. Volunteers know where to find unresolved threads.

    At that level of traffic, volatility like this is normal.

    Many apologies. Honestly thought it might be helpful for others having a similar problem. Did not realize the insignificance.

  9. Please think of this as a triage situation. There are pages of unanswered questions with blogger awaiting answers in them. Some are unable to log-in and work in their blogs.
