Big Traffic Change for Top URL

“Big traffic change for top URL” is a new message sent out from Google Webmaster Tools and it can alert webmasters of both positive and negative trends on their top pages.

The message comes in two formats:

  • “Search results clicks for http://domain.tld/ have increased significantly. Yay!
  • “Search results clicks for http://domain.tld/ have decreased significantly.”

Here’s the screenshot of good one:

Traffic Increase

Note that these messages come with a message ID which can be used to ask for help on Google’s recently re-designed Webmaster Help forum. John Mueller from Google explains, “The message-ID is specific to the message, not the site. We use it so that we can find people having trouble with the messages, even if they post in non-English forums.”

  1. Got The same message From Google but According to my blog traffic stats nothing was change significantly, It was the same , And Nothing was Really changed.

  2. Dan, First Google started sending this ”  We have detected some unnatural links to your site…” Now Google comes up with this….I am sure both of the above warnings do not have any value …thye are just trying to play with web masters…keep your self calm.
