Support » Fixing WordPress » big loss of visits on my site

    My site averaged 10,000 users per month between October 2018 and April 2019 in the google analytics report. In the month of April, which started breaking visit records, there was a sudden drop in visits, which decreased every day until in August there were only 3667 users. I wonder what might have caused this? Is there a way to tell if the site has been penalized by Google or something else? I contacted the server, but they said everything is fine about the server. Thank you for your attention.

    There are two ways to find out if your site was penalized:

    1) Using Google’s Webmasters Search Traffic Tool
    2)Check if your site was penalized with one of those pages that lets you check it.

    I don’t believe your site was penalized. Check your analytics stats, find out which pages were the most visited and then find out the reason of that big drop in visitors.

    I checked analytics and everything is fine.
    I checked the most visited pages, decreased the visits, but I don’t know what happened to drop the visits.

    Are you sure you were not being targetted by spammers?

    I recommend contacting Google Analytics and asking them better ways of tracking your user engagement and more information on your analytics. Analytics can also be used to track drop-off points.

    I made the spam filter and seem to have about 3% spam.

    Could it not be something else that caused it?

    It could be, however you need to check your logs (access, error, and even tracking)
