    So this site has been up for a couple years now and I decided to update it. It has not been updated in a very long time(months). So I deleted some content, added some, and changed things around. Then all of a sudden I lost over 2,000 visits:confused: Does anyone have any idea what the heck I did wrong? I could really use some help to try to figure out what happened. Also I see that I have 0% traffic source from search engines. Does that have something to do with it? Is this info correct or is it just a glitch? Any help is much appreciated. I hope I can figure things out:(

    probably was a bad idea to delete your content. they say don't fix what aint broken. restore your site. im not sure if you have a local backup, but if you don't, use wayback or something. once youve restored the site, begin adding the new stuff.

    best of luck man.

    The things is that I deleted old information that needed to be changed. Is there any way that I can restore that information but not have it viewable to a visitor? Would that help things?

    It's possible you deleted a page that was bringing in a ton of traffic that you didn't know about

    Lol, it makes no sense deleting a page without viewing the statistics....

    If you backed up your file you can upload that but if not.. tough luck mate

    I did not delete though, just deleted content and changed the wording. There is one page that I did delete that may be the problem. I just restored it.

    If contents are old use StrikeThrough for those contents, or write a warning this is an old article/post.
    If you have changed the look of website, restore it.
