Organic, Social and Referral traffic drop
« on: 11-03-2016, 03:23:50 »
Hi All, I'm an SEO newbie helping with the site amritayoga dot com. On Oct 22 our Organic, Social and Referral traffic/sessions dropped to zero while our Direct traffic stayed about the same. I used Google Analytics to get this info. I'm now researching why but so far don't have any clear answers. Around Oct 22 I changed the category of some (maybe 20%) of our blog posts. Also around Oct 22 the big DDOS attacks started. Any thing else I should research about why the sudden drop in sessions? I checked and we have no Google penalty. I checked our Google Search Console and our "Total Clicks" numbers look steady with no big drops. Any insights on this most appreciated.

Penguin dropped around Sep 23rd and my Organic, Social and Referral traffic dropped on Oct 22 (my Direct traffic stayed about the same). Because of the 1 month time difference, I'm guessing the drop was *not* caused by the Penguin update? Am I wrong?

Also the Google Search Console shows no drop at all in my "Total Clicks". Any ideas what could cause the drop of Organic, Social and Referral traffic? How should I research this?

Thanks,
