    Hi guys, i am not sure why but today i am hardly seeing any traffic on my sites. All my sites are UK based and all traffic comes from google.co.uk.

    There is no change in rankings.

    All together i normally get 5k-6k unique visitors/day but today i got only 400 visitors till now. Anyone else facing this issue?

    Your niche is obviously not holiday related OP. People are not searching for it on Christmas.

    Considering your username i guess you are targeting an islamic country. my only orders that are worth talking about have been from UAE for today...

    Understandable of course as the Islamic world are all working and shopping as they do not partake or recognize this time of the year, for reasons that are not allowed to be discussed on BHW.
