This week’s search is no search at all. I was surprised when looking at searches this week to see the list very short. I was puzzled since this site has always been very good in Google search results. About 70% of visitors here have always come through the Google search engine. Often pages here are at the top of the Google search results. No more.
On October 13 Google did some sort of update to their search engine and this site’s Google traffic dropped 70% overnight. All other traffic sources stayed the same. Frustrating for sure but nothing that can be done about it. Can you imagine if you made your living from a website and Google did this to it? I will continue to post interesting searches as I find them. But with 300 a week rather than 1,000 the pickings are a bit slimmer. Below is the graph of Google search visitors that shows the drop during the week of October 13th.
