What’s the best thing to do? Make some changes or wait and see what happens?
If this has happened to you, don’t worry you are not alone. It seems to happen to everyone who runs a website at some point or another. The big question is what is the best thing to do? Should you rush in there and start changing things on the site, or take a wait and see approach to see if things improve?
Below, I’ve outlined a few things I might look at first:
1. Has the traffic actually dropped from Google or is the problem somewhere else?
You can check this using Google Analytics. Login to Analytics, then click “Traffic Sources” from the list on the left. Click “Sources” and then click “All Traffic” from the drop-down.
Then click on each “Source/Medium”, such as “google/organic”, “direct” etc. When you click into each one you’ll see a graph near the top of the page. Any major drop offs in traffic will show here against the date.
2. Check to see if the sites backlinks may be causing a problem.
Google is getting more choosy about the backlinks coming from other sites into yours. If any of these have been created for the purposes of providing backlinks, it may be a problem and you may not even know the links are there.
