8 Reasons for Suddenly Low Blog Traffic and Its Solutions

We always think about increasing the traffic of our blog. And we do a lot for that. But sometimes in the pursuit of doing good, we make some such mistakes on our blog, which suddenly reduces the traffic of the blog.


Suppose your blog has recently had 1000 visitors. But how would you feel if suddenly your traffic becomes 500? And you will think that how can so many visitors be less?


REASONS FOR SUDDENLY LOW BLOG TRAFFIC

But this is not a big deal, because the way of searching search engines changes every day. So for any reason, the traffic of your blog may decrease.


If the number of visitors to your blog is decreasing, then you should read this post carefully. Because of this post, I will tell you some reasons for the sudden decrease in the traffic of the blog.


Which you will better understand why this happens. And what should you do about it?


8 REASONS FOR LOW TRAFFIC OF BLOG AND ITS SOLUTIONS


By the way, visitors to the blog can be low due to many reasons. But I will tell you some of the main reasons due to which the traffic of your blog can suddenly decrease.


1. PENALTY OF GOOGLE 


If your blog has got a penalty from Google, then the blog traffic may decrease suddenly. And if you do not follow the rules of Google on your blog, then Google can penalize your site at any time.


For example, if you have added many unrelated things to your site or no organic traffic on your site, then Google can block your site. Or blocks your post from indexing.


If the blog traffic suddenly decreases, you should first check on your Google Webmaster Tool whether your site did not get any penalty from the search engine.


To check this, you log in to your Google Webmaster Tools. Then check on search traffic >> Manual Action. If you see a message here, Google may have temporarily or permanently penalized your site.


2. PENALTY OF PANDA 


Google launched Google panda to close sites with spam, bad, low-quality content. Which penalizes any blog if there is low-quality content or duplicate content.


So if the traffic of your blog has reduced then it may be that your blog has been penalized by Panda.


REASONS FOR SUDDENLY LOW BLOG TRAFFIC


And for this, to check whether there is duplicate content on your blog or not, take the help of Copyscape Tools and remove them if there is a duplicate or spam content. And always follow Google Content Policy.


3. DESIGN OF SITE 


This can also be a reason for less visitors on the website or blog that the design of your blog is not good. That is, visitors are not liking your design.


In such a situation, traffic will come to your blog, but they will not understand what is on your blog, so they will leave your blog. And the bounce rate of your blog will also be higher.


So always keep the design of the blog simple and do not change the design and theme of your blog again and again.


4. DOMAIN NAME CHANGED


Changing the domain name can also reduce the traffic of the blog suddenly. Because if the URL of your blog will change then you can redirect your direct visitors to your new domain.


But the organic visitors you have will be reduced. And all the backlinks of your blog will not work. Which can also reduce the domain authority, ranking of your blog.


So never change the domain name of the blog. And even if you want to do it, then change it within 6 months of making a blog. If your blog is older than that, then do not change it. Otherwise, the traffic of your blog will decrease.


5. LOADING SPEED OF WEBSITE


The loading speed of the blog should be fast, otherwise, it will not take much time for your website visitors to decrease. Because neither visitors nor Google like the blog with slow loading.


So anytime if the loading speed of your blog becomes very slow, then the reason for the high traffic of the blog becomes low.


So keep checking the loading speed of the blog on the Gtmetrix tool. And make your blog's loading speed fast.


6. BLOG POST UPDATES


It is very important to update the post. But even if you update the post incorrectly, the traffic of your blog decreases.


I just recently updated one of my popular posts. In which I used to get 200 visitors every day. But when I updated the post, I accidentally added some new or unrelated links to it. Which was not showing up on my post search engine from the next day. And the visitors to my blog also suddenly decreased.


Checked up to 100 numbers on Maine search results but I didn't get the post. Then I checked my post and I saw that I have added a link to some of my new posts on that post. And also 1 unrelated link was added.


Then at night I corrected that post again and removed those links as well. Then the next day that post came again in the first position and I again got 200+ visitors.


That is, while updating the post, update it only after checking it well. And if there is too much work, then keep that post in the draft and update it only after optimizing it well.


7. WEBSITE HACKED


Many WordPress blogs are hacked every day. Even if someone hacks your blog, they can hack your site's identity along with stealing the content of your site. And if someone does this then you will see less traffic on your blog.


Or due to the web hosting that you have bought, your blog may suddenly have less visitors. And this will happen only if your hosting is not good, or even due to the problem of hosting mostly server down, Google can block your site as spam.


So for this, always buy hosting from any reliable company.


8. NOT WORKING HARD


If you do not work hard on your blog then you will lose traffic.


A. daily post 1 blog on your website.


B. weakly post 3 blogs on your website.


C. posts blogs in a two days gap.


for example - post on Monday then leave Tuesday and post on Wednesday.


D. do internal linking in every post if the link is needed.


FINAL WORDS


Due to a small mistake, the traffic of the blog can be very less. Therefore, always change the things of your blog after thinking carefully or by asking a big blogger. And always follow the content policy of Google.
