The quality of the traffic derived from sponsored ads has diminished over the past couple of months. I've noticed this more with one of the search engine provider's of cost-per-click traffic services, more so than the other important one.
When I check my server logs I see too many, of what appear to be visitors, who spend less than one second on the web site and then just go away. This visitor is the result of a specific keyphrase search. This visitor "examined" the title and description? Did he / she see the URL? I just don't how this is based on specific search results. Luckily the another major search provider seemingly doing a better job at this, in today's search engine market conditions.
I get ticked off the most when I try to track their source, and get stonewalled at an another IP number. I don't care to have the technical knowledge of what it is. Is there some way to avoid this and regain my confidence? It's happened before, it'll more than likely happen again, regain my confidence that is.
Question : Is there a name for this type of visitor. What would it be?
It becomes discouraging to watch money get collected by the "search engine" when it could be better used elsewhere. Too great is the volume of this and too much is the cost of sustaining this visitor, one initiated by an exact keyphrase search.
Additional Questions :
Is there basis to what I'm observing?
Are there repercussions for discussing this observation?
Am I just a <<URL SNIPPED>> guy?
Or do I just feel like making a stink today? I am rather moody lately.
Comments welcomed. Call me a dweeb or whatever, but do that at my blogspot, if you can find it. That way if I don't like your reply, I can delete it. In here, as I don't enjoy debating and being challenged in public, I don't want to talk about much alse but this right now.
