    I went from 5-600 unique a day, to 28!? wtf?
    This is one of my autoblog, going from $25-$35 a day, to $0.50

    Can anyone tell me what could have happened?

    My site is still indexed on google, bing, yahoo and so on, So i cant have been sandboxed.

    Edit* I have NEVER used any paid traffic, if that has anything to say...

    Well check your referrers. See where your traffic came from on the 17th then see where it came from in the low days. There's your problem. We can't just magically find your problem for you. =]

    Just because your site is indexed in Google doesn't mean it actually rank for any keywords. Over 90% of your traffic comes from search engines that means your site is not ranking for keywords anymore. Did you do Scrapebox blasts or some other blackhat technique lately? Maybe someone reported your site to Google for scraping his content? By the way $30 every 500 visitors is not bad. Is that AdSense or CPA?

    I think i'll give it a couple of weeks or a month, and see if it goes back to normal.

    I gave it a 2500 backlink blast two weeks ago... Right.. Just remembered....

    Its just from adsense :) It also generates $2-$5 from amazon, and $0.5-$1 from infolinks, So its doing pretty well i would say :)

    But thanks anyway for your time :)

    Why don't you check your stats and see where the traffic came from.

    If it came from google or other SE's, then for which keywords...Search on those terms and see where your site is now. Is it somewhere in the 2nd page or gone from google completely.

    The site is back to normal again, looks like it was only temporary. Yay :)
    And I started out with 700 unique, and $20 from adsense, and $20 from amazon, today :)

    I use G analytics.

    And I don't buy cheap ass backlinks, just to many at one time ;)
    Though my other AB didn't take any damage :)

    This happened to me back in Nov/Dec and it turned out it was a massive buildup of broken links that I'd created for myself by using that damn translator plugin. I had 10,000 broken or missing links, and Google wasn't happy. Took me a month to get it all cleared up, and now my traffic has bounced back.
