Panicking Again

OK I know things don't move in a straight line. but I had been seeing an increase in visitors (my graph just moved up a level) and an increase in clicks and pennies accumulating. All of a sudden, everything stopped. My visitors dropped to 49 and aren't moving and the pennies are at zero.

Is anyone else seeing a dip? I guess it would make me feel better if I didn't think it was because I can't write anymore....

Hmmm yes I had a dip today myself, eb and flow I suppose. I don't fret or even think about these things much.

My graph is always like a mountain range and even the peaks are not that high so I guess it would not be so noticeable. I suppose the stats. do seem a bit lower than normal. Maybe everyone is doing something else today.

From what I have read in forums peaks and troughs are part of writing online. Sometimes they are caused by things like a holiday season, the weather or even search engine updates. Most times the traffic returns, there are exceptions but it is best not to dwell on them.

peaks and valleys, yes. but things seem to have come to a screeching halt!

Oh, well, I'm writing another article anyway - just 'cause I want to!

The ubiquitous phrase "calm down and carry on" seems appropriate here.

Do you write on other platforms like Squidoo? It's less frightening that way - your eggs aren't all in one basket.

You're right Nick.

Yes, I do squidoo, Digby. I don't get much out of it though. I tried to do both but it wore me out. I'm concentrating on Wizzley until I get a few more articles up.

Hi Lana, you wrote 83 pages in 4 months. That's good! I say keep writing and make sure you interlink those pages.

:-) Mira

Thanks Mira. Keep reminding me. I do try to do that.

I am feeling a little better. I think the fact that I couldn't sleep the last two nights has an effect on my mood.

You're doing so well, Lana.  I love your articles; and you're working so hard too.  I have faith that it'll all work out in the end.

Thanks. I guess I just wrote a few articles that don't interest anyone but me. The one I just published went to 100 visits in an hour. Guess people were interested in that....

And my visits overall climbed back up and I made a sale on Amazon. I guess I have to retract what I said earlier. It was just lack of sleep.

 

On top of all that - Zazzle's quick create is working for me now....

Congrats for the Amazon sale! :-)

Regarding your question about the dip in visitors, I noticed it too. I guess part of it has to do with the fact that summer is over :-) But pretty soon people will start looking for other things, related to the fall season and Christmas season. Apart from season-related articles, people will also be reading more stuff again once fall gets into full swing and they get back to the computer to search for this and that.

Thanks.

I think it just shocks me when I have a high of visits of almost 300 and the next day it's about 30. It seems to climb up during the day, so I have to learn to relax. It will do what it will do.

I also got only around 30 visits per day on average so far :) but it is increasing and will increase for sure ;)
