    Anyone else noticed a drop in traffic the last couple of days when they announced Hurricane Irene's path?

    Just curious to see if this is why I've lost traffic... My rankings are the same... But traffic has decreased. I know a lot of people have evacuated their homes, but I'd be interested in finding out if this is the reason why I've had a drop in traffic?

    Who knows, just a thought...

    Interesting! Maybe it is maybe not. However, if you watch CNN you will see that something like hurricane, earthquake, etc. is happening all the time in the US. So in fact counted, it has permanent influence on the traffic, so no special movements should you see :)
