Traffic Going Back Despite Higher Quality and Engagement

Last Update: August 25, 2015

I'm wondering what you're interpretations of my data are and how you're experiences look like. My website is up and growing since January 2015. Now I entered a phase with regular posts and ever more comments and interactions.

Now I looked at Google Analytics today and was disappointed to see that traffic is going back below 10 per day. Althoug in the past few weeks I put a lot of work into my site. First the traffic started increasing, of course with fluctuations. But now I'm a little puzzled. Here's the stat of today:

I don't want to appear as impatient and moaning. From the community I know that success takes its time. But I'm asking myself if there's something I'm missing here? And could you give me some SEO advice?

Thanks for your feedback, Stefan

PS This relates to my site heartbasedpower.com

Hi Stefan, I have seen the same trend in one of my sites and I was very disappointed. Not sure what the reason is and what to do.

Well, we 're dealing with AI I suppose, so it's hard to get into the brain of this robot ;-)

The experts say that this is normal. I think we should be trying other traffic generation tips while we wait for Google to sprinkle their magic dust on our website. Hope that helps.

Hi Stefan, I started my website also since January this year and had 250 clicks in the first three months, 250 clicks in April, 550 in May and around a thousand per month in June, July and this month, so you can say it is stagnating as is yours. As most of my clicks come from the US, I experienced a significant dip in the week of 4th July.
I now have about 78 pages/posts and was told that from having a solid base of 40-50 posts/pages (as of June), the number of clicks would rise significantly.
I will shortly check what my rankings per page are, I know some of them are on page one, but I am guessing that this is not the case for all of them.
I have given you this info as we could be in the same situation and maybe together we can find a way of improving.

Thanks a lot for the support. In the next days I'll delve into this topic much more and will let you know here of my results.

I think it's very normal if your site is still new, less than 1 year online. August is the worst month due to vacations and my traffic dropped from 300 visits a day to 100, 150, 200 a day.
