The feeling is partly physical – I suspect somewhere in the past week of three birthday parties, one work break up party, two Christmas parties and one wedding that I ate something a little dodgy which has left me feeling queasy.
The other part of it is a sinking feeling in the guts as I look at the impact of Google’s latest update upon my blogging ventures. I mentioned a couple of days back that the update was in full swing and that bloggers were reporting a wide diversity of results – some record high traffic, others record lows and still others no impact.
The main advice coming from experienced webmasters was to hang in there and wait unitl things settle – good advice which I’ve been taking heed of. However the news so far for this problogger isn’t too good as can be seen from the following traffic graph (click to enlarge) from my Digital Photography Blog.
Of course its too soon to tell what the lasting results will be but the last two day’s traffic isn’t looking particularly positive. Traffic is down to around 25% of ‘normal’ levels and SERPS (search engine results positions) are way down. Not the nicest Christmas present Google could have given me.
