One of those days
Last Update: Feb 5, 2016
We all have them. Days that the best you can do is to grin and bear them.
Our water is off because they are putting in new pipes.
My site verification doesn't seem to have taken yet (I blogged yesterday that link got broken)
So still no traffic seen in google analytics.
Blogged yesterday and was active in the community, thought my rank might improve, but it went down a point.
I wrote a post yesterday to keep my publishing frequency up. As I was getting the post written the frequency dropped 10 points so when I published I only stayed where I was.
I know all of this is temporary and I just have to be at peace with it. I think I need to let WA go for the day and tend to other things. Get a fresh start tomorrow.
I am definitely going to need the upcoming training about getting past the 3 month mark! LOL.
Hi Michael, I know about "those days" quite well and yes, you did the right thing! Just take a break from WA and totally do something that's not work-related....
Hope your day is doing better.....
I had one of those days yesterday too. Got bad family news and my took a nose dive. My point... we all have those days. Just brush yourself off and start new tomorrow. Everyday is a new chance to start over. That' the great thing about tomorrows.
You are doing great. You are working consistently and paying attention to your site so you are going to see that improve. Your WA rank is not only dependent on what you do but what everyone else does in all the different categories that they rank on. So it can fluctuate up and down each day.
If you are reading and responding to blogs, answering questions when you can, creating new blogs you are going to see improvements. I have watched you move up in the rank and you seem to be doing great. IF you have not already, sorry if you did and I don't remember, you can also use the creation of training to improve your rank once you hit your three months.
Keep up the great work. You are doing an outstanding job!
Very strange what I did yesterday was to remove and repair in all the meta tags in the Yoast page and this morning back up to 50 views
It will all come back together. We all have one of those days. I think you did the right thing by leaving WA for the day; sometimes that is the best thing to do in order to regroup. Lots of success.
Your water will flow soon, analytics will sort itself out, your WA rank will catch up as will your post frequency count. Never mind about tomorrow, TODAY is a beautiful day.
Some times taking a break can be the best way forward. You are making great progress Micheal.
Remember that famous saying: "Sometimes You Take Two Steps Back in Order to Take One Forward"

Sometimes situation force you to take a break. It refresh your brain too. It is well.
