    I don't what happened here. I made one blog post and made a change on Headspace last night. I noticed that all of my pages had the %sitename% twice. For example, each blog post would have

    %postname% %sitename% - %sitename%

    I thought this was redundant and would get penalized so I changed it to the following:

    %postname% - %sitename%

    This morning I checked my data and I lost ALL visitors from the US which was 2/3 of all of my traffic. Does anyone know what happened? It seems counter intuitive to revert it back to the duplicating header on Headspace.
