    Dear blackhatters recently i started to finaly get revenue from one of my sites it earned something like 1,5-2,50 eur a day. not much but it was something :p

    now all of the sudden my traffic dropped massivly and its only earning 30 cent ><

    i did create backlinks with both scrapebox and xrumer and it has 445 atm, but a ton more that arent indexed by google atm, my site is still indexed so that also shouldnt be the reason traffic dropped.

    its a news site tough maybe thats the reason why.

    screens:

    traffic:
    [​IMG]

    adsense:
    [​IMG]


    any ideas as to how this bouncing is happening ? and how i can make the traffic and revenue more consistent ?

    any help , criticism , advise are welcome and greatly apreciated.

    Best Regards,

    Use something like Google Webmaster Tools to see specifically how your keywords you are ranking for are changing. This will give you a much more specific idea of what is causing your traffic to change.

    Code:

    well its a news site that uses the latest google trends to scrape articles.. so its not geared to specific keywords..

    im pretty new to those kind of sites so im curious how to rank those sites, u cant just anchor link all of them because the tags and toppics are too broad.

    If your just scraping news stories, without re-writing them at all, is it possible you have been penalised for dupe content?

    thx for the advise so far your guys are great ;)
    so i guess i should just continue building content and backlinks.
    the content is not fully unique tough as its scraped from various news sites, however i have some plugins that make the content unique one does replace random chars with html chars so it looks like &#125 for example , the viewer sees the text normal but the search engines and copyscape think its unique. also it replaces some words with synonyms so its spinned kinda.

    i still wonder what is the best way to rank high in google for a site that has not just one toppic but has different toppics/keywords each day ( google trends)

    Make sure that you haven't done anything to your site during the traffic drop, maybe that is what caused all of this.

    im not sure if i know what you mean with "havent done anything" during the drop..

    thx for helping figuring this out, the traffic dropped from 100+ visitors a day to 40-50. im increasing backlinks atm but have a hard time indexing them even while using linklicious and backlink to backlink
