    Hello all , I used to be a very active blogger in the past getting close to 4000 visitors daily especially from search engines, all of a sudden , i rarely get any hit from the google search engines no matter how harg i try to follow the rules . It seems the site has "DIED" in the eyes of google and i really do not understand till this very minuite what i need to do to make it start ranking again in the search engines . It is so bad now that if i dont use any bookmarking site like stumbleupon or reddit , i wouldnt have a singel hit on my blog . So sad , so annoying and sometimes i just feel like crying . I really need someone to help me out genuinely .

    Thanks , i look foward to hearing from the SEO experts in the house. I couldnt post a link to my blog here. :(

    It depends what you're ranking for? Have you checked your positions in the search engines for some of your keywords? Maybe you just dropped over time. Have you written any new stuff lately?

    go to ahrefs and run a link report for your site, you could have been hit with spam links. Also look in your webmasters and see if you have any messages from G. And like treeof1 said check your rankings, your niche may have had an influx of competitors.

    Haven't you answered your own question?

    You used to be a very active blogger. The traffic will have died out because you stopped updating your blog with fresh and unique content. Go back to blogging how you used to and it will very likely pick up again. It will take time to get back to that number of unique visitors per day but it worked for you in the past.

    The top reason that make the blog "died" may from your content. If this is true, the best way for you to amend or give the good, unique content. then google will index it again for a good position

    Sometimes it is best to let go and accept the death of your blog.

    That's applicable only in rare cases. In the OP's case, I think that he should start updating his blogs. Make some tweaks and give sometime on his blog regularly.

    OP, have you seen a plant grow? Initially, it may grow with complete ease, but when autumn season comes its leaves start falling and some ignorant people perceive that their plant is dying, but this is part of nature's cycle. What goes up has to come down, but having said that you have a choice to let the plant remain as it is or look after it and ensure that it sees many more seasons to come. Plant is just a metaphor here. Hope you understand my point. All the best.

    Then you may end up wasting a lot of time, when you could move on. I have tried lots of different things to try and revive dead sites. The best I have come is getting one back for a few weeks, only for it then to die again.

    The lack of visitors discouraged me from posting regularly nowadays, there were times i post 5 times in a day, still nothing, it became fraustrating . Truth is i never really stopped posting.

    Post slower. Regulate your postings. Post more quality content and post maybe just one post per day. Don't try to push yourself too hard.

    stop posting 5 times a day man and rely on Google traffic. While SEO is still a very good and relevant traffic but it should never be your blog's main traffic. I have learned my lessons and so should you

    Posting even just once every 3 days is enough if your post is good enough. You better spend your time for other traffic source such as engage in forums, facebook groups, youtube, or even instagram. (content creation is still nothing without marketing efforts)
