I mentioned this in another thread but thought it deserved it's own. Check out where Ezinearticles was last year, and look at it today: I circled the bottom parts so you didnt miss where they get their traffic from and what types of terms get searched. Looks like 1/2 their refer comes from google, but check out those numbers. This time last year they were sporting over 11 million uniques, and now just over 8 million!!! That is a whopping 38% drop in traffic! I think this has a lot to do with their editorial policies. However, their downward trend took place at the exact same time Google update their search as well. What do you think, has EzineArticles killed themselves? Oh and btw.. this is not happening with other article directories. There are others who are actually gaining more traffic now. Will Ezinearticles survive till next year? At the going rate it doesn't look like it!
