Hey everyone! To those who dabble in SEO - how has traffic been going for you these past 6-12 months? I ask because I've focused on SEO now for about 4-5 years and have done really well - at one point I was getting 100k visits to my website a month and had about 1200 new subscribers joining my email list each month. Since about April it's been tanking slowly but surely (with the occasional bump up but the overall trend is traffic declining), and if anything I'm putting out longer, meatier blog posts since the beginning of this year, doing occasional refurbs, getting unique backlinks from reputable high domain authority websites etc. Now, just to clarify, my website traffic isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination, but this never-ending decline is making me a little worried. And I can't for the life of me work out why there's a steady decline. I'm an authority on my subject, I have a growing body of work on my website etc. I'm going to hop on a call with my SEO specialist but I'd love to hear thoughts from others too. Thanks 😊
@Victoria Kurichenko Thanks for your response! I haven't used AI tools in writing my blog posts. And I'm sure my competitors are doing things to outperform me I'm just not sure what they might be, haha. I have a refurbishing project going on but I'm only able to get to about 1 piece a month at the moment, but maybe that's where I should be focusing my efforts given what you've shared about your own traffic.
