So the biggest story for my site’s traffic in 2018 is the Google Algorithm Changes that I wrote about here.
It was a bloodbath, basically.
I am currently at 50% of my traffic as compared to the beginning of 2018. But I’m hoping that’ll re-adjust as Google tries to figure out who has authority on various topics and who doesn’t.
Here’s some browser data—with Chrome still dominating.
And here’s some social media numbers.
Overall I still had way over 2 million pageviews, so it was still a good year. But I can’t help but feel like the year was a bad one due to losing 50% of my traffic starting around July.
I really hope Google re-adjusts and brings me back to my former levels—and hopefully even more given the work I’ve been doing on cleanup.
