  • Search Engine Funny Business?

    Is anyone else having strange drops in their number of visitors? We've been noticing that we'll have steady stream of visitors, then suddenly we'll see a drop to zero for 4, 5, 6 hours at a time, then suddenly pop back up again. We check our site and it's up, and we're getting no down time warnings.

    We're not sure what to make of it. We've noticed it started a couple weeks ago and happens at least once every other day. It's a bit suspicious that it seems to have coincided with the FCCs Net Neutrality rule being struck down.

    We're just wondering if it's just us, and people suddenly, randomly stop searching for anything we sell for hours at a time, and we're paranoid, or if there is some funny business going on...perhaps search engines testing the world of big dollar favoritism.

    Hmmm, 8 1/2 hours into the day and not a single visitor from the US. We only target the US with our Google Adwords, yet ALL of our traffic is international. Interesting.

    I guess no one else is seeing odd traffic patterns.

      Nope, I have not noticed anything like that.
