You might want to be a little more specific about your revenue stream if you'd like to start a meaningful conversation. Adsense, CPA, membership sites, etc. all of them might have different sales fluctuations over the same time period.
If you're traffic is the same, it won't be due to any drop in rankings then most likely. What is the website? Is it an e-commerce store?
what niche are your targeting?
Adsense, CPA, PPD, ?
Selling a service - no adsense, etc just plain old sales.
I'm sat here scratching my head, cannot fathom why sales have suddenly ground to a halt - everything is the same apart from the money.
Im testing a new site with amazon aff. not much traffic. I had two sales from 65 clicks in january $7.34 or so revenue. And I have around 120+ clicks but not a single sale :/ This is my two pieces. You have to be more specific on which network you are talking to
I'm not talking to a network, it isn't affiliate or adsense or any of that, it's a service - how much more spcific can I be than that without telling you the niche I'm working in and having a 1000 keyboard warriors all suddenly competing against me.
I sell a service - sales have dropped off a cliff with no drop in traffic.
The question is simple - is it just me or is Feb proving to be an utterly shit month for other people too.
No other information is needed.
Try offering a sale to boost income?
thank you - a sensible, non-fishing response - In actual fact I tried that with no response - I even tried lowering prices on the main 4 products - no response.
I don't get why it's just hit a brick wall.
Maybe it's one of those things and it will pick up again later. I hope.
Well... maybe people don't need your service anymore or you got some bad rep somehow..
Also Jan and Feb are always slow months people still have to recover from the holidays
February has not been a particularly good month for me. I won't worry about it unless the trend continues over the next couple of months.
Did you try increasing prices? Or changing things to a limited time offer?
I increased all my prices this year. Causing better response.
My traffic has been consistent, but income down both on CB and Media.net i suspect that it is quality of traffic....Google probably bombarding sites with bots testing our reflexes, last 3 days have been much better but first couple of weeks of February were BAD!
interesting to see other people not having the best month either.
May be demand for such a service has dropped? Or perhaps there is another provider offering something similar which is diluting your sales?
Hmm, any new direct competitor around? Any new negative stuff (ratings, reviews, forum posts, etc.) popping up when doing a brand search?
It's because everybody's credit card statements from the christmas season have arrived.
An CTO at a processing company once told me that that feb is historically the slowest month for commerce worldwide, for reason mentioned above.
February is legendary in sales for being slow...stop worrying. If this persists into May, start worrying. The global economy couldn't be more fragile at the moment...
Kveldulv and jnilij42 - thank you very much, that makes perfect sense!
