    Would need to see the sites before we can tell you what went wrong and how to recover.

    Do you see changes in your page rank? Or only traffic is bad? How many days you see this change?

    You need to be more specific.

    What SEO have you done for the sites?

    so basically you lost traffic because you lost SERP on your keywords. As far I know, there's no major update as of now... but for sure you must check what link building you have done recently on that..

    Changes are always occurring but I can definitely agree that two of my sites have seen a 30% drop in traffic since Jan 9th. SERP positions have dropped about 4 positions on most keywords. I think the shuffle is more related to content and Hummingbird rather than link building. The two sites I have mentioned are not being pushed by blackhat linkbuilding tools.

    here is some other folks complaining about the changes

    You sure got hit, now do a reverse engineering and see what you have messed up in the way.

    Remember that Google gets smarter everyday...

    Looks like some links you added to your blog caused a negative response to your ranking. Bring out the disavow tool
    and add better links and more high quality content.

    You ask us to give an educated opinion on your situation
    but you do not give us anything we can make an educated
    guess with. How is that suppose to work?

    There was a Google algo or minor search refresh on January 8th and 9th, a lot of sites penalized by this update and traffic drop up to 60%. I see YouTube vids ranking high after this update.

    Reason may be heavily spammed links with targeted keyword instead using link diversity.

    Anybody noted this or any inputs about this?.

    Sorry for not replying because I lost track of my post. My blog is ppd related and multi-niche site with many keywords.In December , I bought 3 tier link building starter package on drip-feeding .After that My traffic went up from 3k daily to 9-10k daily .I don't know it is just coincidence or not .Starting from Jan 11 ,My traffic suddenly dropped to 3k-4k .I don't know what is wrong .When I checked my site in google ,I don't see many links of my site .In the past ,most posts of my site are indexed mostly on first page and now on fifth page .My site is PR0 rank and I don't know about SERP ranking .I don't know how to check it since I am a newbie in SEO . Should I build more links or just wait to come up again ?

    Although before you get too upset,

    Compare your conversion numbers between now and pre drop, as some including me found in the past that hummingbird dropped some of my long tails etc but had no impact on conversions (the ratio was higher but this was due to less visits, the actual monetary sums were still the same)

    All traffic emulator software does is emulate I.e. imitate, I.e. pretend to be, traffic.

    I don't see how that will help him. Other than a pretty line on webmaster tools.

    It won't convert, I.e. make money.

    I don't know if software is the right solution here.

    It sounds like the link package worked but too well. You might have burned, in which case a new start, though $70 a day is not too shabby, so its not a complete right off.

    Either way I think your site needs to age a little before you lose that 70 by over boosting it.

    Do some manual work on it for a while just until you get your head around what is involved and then maybe think about automation,

    You are doing not bad at all, your hits and returns are good, just do some more of what got you your 3k daily.
