  1. Despite posting less content on my blog over the last few months, I have seen traffic increase.

    Has anyone had this happen to them too?

  2. Maybe Google is removing all the weak content and now starting to rank the better content higher!? ;)
    Strangely enough, your overall traffic has gone down a little, but that is estimate so is probably not 100% accurate. But your search visits have gone up by 36%

    Same with ours. Overall traffic has gone down a little but search visits have increased by 52%

    I haven't checked Google Analytics yet.
     
  3. If you go back a year, page impressions have dropped a lot. Last March the forums generated nearly double the impressions that we are currently getting.

    A forum lives and dies by its activity and there has not been as many discussions being created there. Less Threads = Less Traffic.

    We have, however, seen search traffic drop at around the same rate. So perhaps Rise Forums hasn't done too well from recent search engine changes.
     
  4. I'm not sure. I'm not a pro at GA and the like. Still learning, to be honest. I attached ours, and as you can see it's all over the place!

  5. Take a closer look at your traffic to get a better understanding of why traffic is going up or down. You can monitor your search engine traffic and referral traffic etc.
