I often go to Google Analytics to understand the performance of our website. But recently (since 2-3 weeks), I'm observing a dip in my website's traffic. I'm trying to figure out what's the reason behind it.
I read a Neil Patel's article that says most of the industries are seeing a traffic dip. So I thought to ask you all that are you dealing with the same situation?
P.S. My website's name is MakeWebBetter and it offers SaaS based solutions.

It depends. The Google update that just came out, as it did last year, will usually be geared towards e-commerce websites since this is their month to shine. You might see some fluctuations, but you shouldn't be seeing anything too major. I'm not dealing with the situation and not expecting to.
Have you done a backlink audit? Maybe you got an influx from somewhere and it gave you a quick boost and Google just needs some time to even back out. Have you made any other big changes recently?

Thanks @DavidDennison that makes sense.
And we haven't made any major changes lately. So I hope things will get back on track quite soon.

Could just be some slight growing pains. Hang in there!

Thanks for reaching out! HubSpot also did a study regarding this traffic dip. Here's the study with some helpful tips on how to respond to seasonal trends!
I'll add some members of our study group to our conversation to get their input!
Hi all! @Sam62 has observed a dip in his website traffic in the past few weeks. Have you observed this dip in Google Analytics or another web analytics software as well?
