Could SEO Plugin Pull Down My Stats? (3 posts)

    General question:
    I had a website up on wordpress.com and was pulling in about 400 visitors/page views a day. I transferred over to wordpress.org and love it but I noticed that my stats started to stagnate and then begin to drop to about 200 a day. On a whim, I deactivated my SEO by Yoast (I found it confusing) and sure enough, within a week my stats rose back up to 400. Am I crazy? Could the app in the wrong hands (mine!) do more harm than good for my SEO?

    Shouldn't have hurt you at all. Did you take a look at your google analytics to see where your jump in traffic came from?

    It's two posts that seem to get the most traffic but they've always been popular. I was just curious if it was coincidence or something more. Thanks for your response.
