    Hey guys wondering if anyone has a big traffic drop today and yesterday (xmas?) or if it's only me...

    Lost about 60% of my organic traffic from google in the last two days...

    I actually use pwik since i read on here some people don't want anything google on their sites. It's not as good as analytics, but has some things that analytics doesn't.

    It's Christmas. Happening to most people and businesses during this time. Tomorrow may be bad as well due to people traveling and what not. However, next week should pick up.

    One of my client's lost 2/3 of their traffic on 24th and 25th. I believe it's due to the holiday season people are with their families instead of Googleing. :(

    Sorry bro the internets dying quickly. Most people are reverting back to libraries, newspapers and magazines to get their info now!

    OK I got jokes and unfunny ones at that :p

    It depends on the niche though. I remember reading a thread last year how a chick was in "get your ex back" niche and she noted how it made her feel bad her traffic was going UP during the holidays. I think Thanksgiving and Xmas were her biggest traffic days. So yeah, depends on the niche.
