    Default Did you see a decrease in USA traffic the past few days?

    Did any of you experience any significant decrease in USA traffic the past few days (from the Thursday onwards and continuing today) without any apparent ranking changes or penalty?

    Related question: Did you see any unusual ranking changes during this time frame?

    I believe something is up but not sure what. My traffic is massively down (like 20%-30%) since Friday but no major ranking decrease or penalty.

    Yep there has been a decrease in overall traffic but targeted traffic / keywords still seem the same . My alexa rankings are down big time, but my rankings for targeted keywords are good, and things are converting.

    There was a slight decrease, but now things are getting back on track.

    I saw a slight drop in affiliated traffic from around the 7th of the month. Lasted a few days and seemed to pick up again.

    That did coincide with the release Google made to counteract doorway pages. Might be just coincidence though?
