Anyone else seeing a Massive drop-off

Anyone else seeing a massive drop-off in CTR today?? Or is it just me? My CTR has plummeted to about 30% or 'normal'. Traffic appears to be decent, but clicks are few and far between.

Anyone? Bueller?

Re: Anyone else seeing a Massive drop-off

They have just added a lot more crawlers to the non-counting list. That's why.

Re: Anyone else seeing a Massive drop-off

1st April: 70 clicks 15 % CTR*
2nd April: 80 clicks 18 % CTR*

(*including speculator traffic)

I suggest to focus more on clicks per domain parked, rather then views (views fluctuate significantly for reasons we do not know yet). My daily clicks per domain has risen by about 20% on average since i started parking a mth ago. Might be due to better ad targeting or search engine inclusion.

I've created a "sitemap" of my arabic domains, still waiting for google to crawl the map, google seems to be getting slower and slower. I hope to be able to increase clicks to at least 1 per domain per day, now i'm at 0.2. :o

Google is very slow. It has been crawling my new multi hundred thousand page IDN domain at a rate of about 10 pages a day.

Re: Anyone else seeing a Massive drop-off

Very smart move, did you get the dictionary items from wikipedia?

I'm thinking of creating a dictionary for my chinese dictionary.cn.

btw, Даль.com isn't yet indexed by google. I just checked.

Re: Anyone else seeing a Massive drop-off

Thanks, guys. Things seems to be back to normal today. But clicks yesterday were way down (50-70% from average).

Re: Anyone else seeing a Massive drop-off

It goes up and down, rather than looking at it 2-3 hrs, i would suggest working on search engine inclusion or SEO like what blast has done.

It isn't yet indexed, but it is crawling it actively. I got the data from somewhere on the net about two years ago. I don't remember. I had to convert it into the CEDICT format.

I'm using a version of the Chinese worddict perl script that I modified, and apache config file-level (not .htaccess to speed things up) rewrite to get queries as urls, for SEO.

See: http://www.mandarintools.com/worddict.html
It is a pretty robust text file database query engine, perfect for dictionaries.
