I read on this Google blog, that starting the week of August 22, 2022 Google will be changing their search algorithm to find blogs and web sites written by real people.
Being a real person, I decided to grab some screen shots of all the blog stats that matter to me: ForCarol.com, TechyMike.com, and TracyReaderDad.com to see if, after August 22, 2022, my stats go up, or down.
Since they can’t go any lower than they have been for the past few years, no loss.
But…..if the new algorithm finds my blogs and AND if the traffic increases…..
Well…..that’s a good thing…..right?
We will see.
The following stats were snap-shotted on August 19, 2022.
I will track the usage stats over the next few months to see if traffic increases, decreases, or stays the same.
Update August 29, 2022: Daily traffic is too granular to track. BUT…..weekly traffic is better, and if I am patient, monthly and yearly would be even better.
Update Sept 9, 2022: Google announced that it has completed the helpful content update as of today. My traffic this week has crashed, so we will see if it picks up, or if this Google update is not going to help. I’m not hopeful. 😦
Update December 6, 2022: TracyReaderDad.com (book reviews) is booming! ForCarol.com (Charity, movie reviews, STEM/ STEAM and College Scholarships) and TechyMike.com (Geeky stuff) are busting! 🙂
More GEEK stuff…..
