After a week of non-writing at STEREO website statistics showed Google search’s contribution for traffic diminished somewhat noticeably – by as much as 20% (approx).
This was deduced from observing the proportions of contributions from two of the top 3 search engines topical for STEREO – Google, Windows Live and Yandex.
Yandex is new here, yet it is perceived as important traffic supplier having provided 1/4 of the Google’s traffic during previous two months. This week the distance between the two was shrinking.
BTW “Add to bookmarks” figure in AWstats felt a bit too: from the whopping 36.6% in the beginning of the month to 34% for the 24 days of November. So you rather have a good reason to suspend writing like this.
Small wonder the traffic in general continued to grow as usual, 1% a day on average – this is the momentum at work.
