My website scare.
Last Update: Feb 4, 2016
Things were going along well for me on my WA journey (I'm coming up on three months soon). I was building my social media numbers and getting some traffic on my site. Not huge numbers, but coming along. Then the traffic seemed to dry up completely. For 7 days now there hasn't been a single visitor. At least that's what Google Analytics told me. Non one for 7 days! I could swear I saw tumbleweeds roll across the screen.
I though, maybe analytics is broken, but I though, well how could that happen? But when I looked into webmaster tools it did say that my site was not verified. All I can think is that I did changed my theme at about the time that the traffic stopped.
So It was a little frightening but now it's fixed and I am glad to learn a few things.
That my site is fine and I need to have more faith in it
When things look broken maybe they are
When you make changes you need to check that everything is working
When things are broken they are not that hard to fix.
And of course I have to thank the WA community, because when I did start to look for the answers they were right there.
Thanks for sharing. What was the main problem?
Thanks, that's good to know. I'll be prepared for that now. I'm so glad you got it fixed. All the best, Gareth.
So how did you find out you were not verified???
It is strange but for the past week my traffic is getting smaller and now down to 30 visits a day
Great to hear that everything is in order and that you've learned a thing or two :)
BTW, I've read the title of your post as 'My website care' :)
