Dealing with Organic Traffic Declines

12 August 2021

  • Listen now on

iQuanti Vice President of Search Strategy Wayne Cichanski breaks down the three elements involved in identifying what’s causing organic traffic declines and how to combat those issues. Hint: It’s usually a combination of all three (rank distribution, search volume and CTR). Later in the show, Cichanski gets into the “wildcard” element of schema and how that can affect traffic and how consumer intents have shifted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Wrapping it all up, Cichanski discusses Google’s recent page experience update.
