Effect Of Recession On Website Traffic
Posted 15 September 2009 - 08:26 PM
The past few months my commercial site's referrals from SEs are down about 20% compared to last year. Keywords are ranking literally the same as last year. I just am not getting as many referrals from SEs the past few months.
Has this happened to your commercial site? Would this is related to the recession/depression?

Could very well be.
Would depend on the market.

The parents work in the playground industry providing council's with play areas, equipment and safety surfacing, incidentally, they have noticed an considerable increase in web traffic and sales to private nursesries and households, but the local government money has dried up.
So there is definitely a decline due to the recession in many business sectors, but in anything, there is always one mans loss to another mans gain, so some will do rather well from the recession, while other will lose everything.
The usual key to weather any financial storm is to diversify and persevere, which is what one of our suppliers has had to do to stay afloat. Which is good because now their product base has doubled, so if they come out the otherside from this recession, they will be able to build a stonger company with a much larger product base.
Which we can then sell to our customers and thus gives us a greater product base and wide customer scope.
Hence the new 'Rubber Bollards'

Man our pound sucks, even the Thai Baht is @ 55-1 , when it is usually 60-70, ok it fluctuates stupidly depending on the season, but its been @ 55 for 6months+ , that's unheard of! well it was until now.

How much your business is affected is likely dependent on the affluence of your target market. Discounters like WalMart seem to be holding their own, while a lot of high end luxury places (restaurants, etc) seem to be struggling.
