    Our site, a price comparison site was getting about 50-60 hits a day from Google for a month then last week jumped to about 100 a day for several days and now for the last few days is back down to 50-60. I noticed we are no longer getting visits for the product specific search terms that we got last week. Such as buy Bushnell Binoculars. Our site has over 30,000 product pages.

    The only thing that I did in the past week is the google +1 exchange, but many people said that if google penalized based on that you can wipe our your competitors very easilly, which they wont let happen.


    Anyways what would be the best way to boost the # of hits from Google on our more longtail keywords? there are thousands of product specific keywords wed like to rank.

    I think traffic usually drops in summer time and doesn't pick up again until september. It can drop by as much as half especially for a site like yours where i'm guessing each visitor is clicking on a good few pages per visit.
    This may in part explain your situation.

    well check on seoserp.com or use yoursecretbrowsing.info and type in google.com there, are you still seeing yourself at the same spot? If yes, then most likely it's simply because of summer. Otherwise it's because you lose your rankings.
