I don’t know if anyone else has experienced this or if it is just a collision of consequences…but according to my stats, not a single viewer today and a total of 6 referrers the last three days has been through the wordpress reader.
Usually those views make up greater than 50% of the traffic to my blog, and obviously, my traffic the last few days has been below half.
It’s as if my posts simply did not show up in any other bloggers feeds despite those following along.
Now, I understand that it could be from those particular post titles/images not generating enough interest in these busy times for anyone to view them and perhaps that is the cause. Just seemed odd for the traffic to drop off a cliff like that and seemed reflected in reader referrers so wondered if there is a known technical quirk.
Has this happened to you before? Is it an occasional quirk of the reader feed? Is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening in the future? I guess if it is truly occurring few will see this post anyway.
Any thoughts are appreciated!
