I'm having trouble understanding what happened with my site's traffic statistics.
My site, Vacation And Travel Photos, is a travel blog hosted on blogger and since the middle of January 2012 my Google Analytics account started showing a huge increase of direct traffic. Also my bounce rate passed from 65% to 95% and almost all the traffic has now no keywords or referrals.
Besides the regular article publishing I've made no other changes on the
site. I do not use any system (paid or free) to boost visits and although I have the site registered in several directories/bloggers sites (like blogcatalog, technorati, etc) this registers are much oldder than 2012 (some of them are from 2009/2010 so I'm not suspecting them).
My problem is that with the new numbers understanding from where the people are coming is almost impossible and with that in mind I have a much lower chance of optimizing my contents to target the right audiences.
Has this happened to any of you?
Thanks so much for your help, Kind Regards, Joao
P.S.: I've already checked for similar threads but since the ones I found were all a bit old I've decided to go for a new question.
P.S.2: I also have one other site under the same Google Analytics account (a Free Photo Gallery where me and some friends of mine are sharing photos) where nothing of this is happening. Today's numbers are more or less the same of last year's numbers...
