Traffic Alerts from Google Webmaster Tools
Filed under the “it’s about time category” Google Webmaster tools can finally be configured to let you know if you experience a big traffic drop to your site.
The thing is, its vital to know this as soon as possible so you can start to figure out why and hopefully plug the hole that caused it. Don’t expect it to report minor flucrations, it’s aimed at the “My God Jim” level of traffic drops (yes I am a star trek fan)…
Still could be useful to save you having to use a rank checker and manually figure out where the traffic drop is. And lets face it, Google is going to know before anyone else if your traffic has dropped right ?
