    Google Panda 4.1 Update Will Affect 3 to 5% of Queries

    For my forum, looks like +++ for me today :)
    Google Analytics and Adsense Stats.

    Word is out that Penguin is rolling out soon too. This will be a crazy fall!

    So far it looks like i'm gaining back what i've lost the last time.

    They update it so fast now! And it's always changing after an update. Not so fun anymore. :p unless it goes up. :D

    I'm a little down over the past few days, but I can't say either way if I've been affected

    Perhaps, I know Google still has old caches of some of my pages still and it's been over 2 weeks

    My stats have barely changed overall. I've been culling things myself over the past months to lower my bounce rate, which means lower my useless sessions arriving, and trying to improve overall onsite stats, returning vs new... normal stuff.

    Even with all the Google updates that occur... my site is getting more members posting and online, less irrelevant traffic and sessions, better overall statistics based on keeping readers onsite, and ad revenue is continuing to climb each month thus far.

    I think people who target traffic versus quality traffic, will always see issues in SE updates. Mine doesn't seem to be affected by updates and just continues on at a steady stream, slightly climbing year by year and maintaining relevancy as much as possible.

    If any of my recent changes are due to Google tweaking relevancy.... then I hope they keep it up.

    I seem to have dropped one place down for 2 keywords, and moved 2 places up for one keyword.

    I've been feeling the effects of the update for a little while, and I feel it even more so after the launch of Advanced Warfare.

    The lowest points are usually server going offline. I'm optimistic, however, since everyone's been praising Advanced Warfare as of late. I've gotten more users registering, and posting threads. Once the problems are solved, Thanksgiving Day arrives, and then Christmas arrives... I have no doubt there will be a bubble or bubblegum exploding.

    Although I'm sad about this, I will not give up... and I am glad we're about to hit a new milestone: 500,000 pageviews. That's a lot of eyeballs.

    Your graph represents a period of 3 years w/496k views. That equates to about 166k views each year.

    What's the CoD player population? (Don't play, so no real idea....)

    Anyway, using the same metric as Carlos there, we're climbing the hill so-to-speak. No real negative or bursts of positive, just nice and steady growth over the last few years. (Broken down: 1.9m pv/year)

    *itches head* Is that how you read the graph? I've always thought that reading the graph means 166k ...lifetime...? Maybe I've been reading the stats wrong... My server stats are showing 2x GA's stats. My curiosity is definitely piqued now. Hm. Hmmmmmm......
    An average of 15-20 million per game title. Activision said that their market is around 100 million.

    The 496k number is representation of the graph you have selected. If you change the date ranges, that number will go up or down based on the date range you select.

    If you want lifetime: Select the start date of your site and run it until today that will show the total page views for a 'lifetime' period. Otherwise, it just shows by the period of the graph.

    Be careful though, your server log generated stats won't equal what GA sees. Your server counts every hit to your site (human or bot). I have a server logging program that claims I've had 24,620,087 page views in 2014 alone. Nope!

    That's as far back it goes.
    The April 14th date is the first time I put the GA ID into xenForo, so what you're seeing is "lifetime."
    Yep, I know.

    Noticed some 10-15% jump in traffic post 4th Oct.
