I completely revamped my site http://maravillamountain.com in the last few months, but have it up and seems to work fine. Trying to optimize, though and figure out what is going on with my stats at awstats.
The no. of unique visitors has been falling...thought it could be seasonal, but now not sure.
I did make and submit a google sitemap, and I think that worked ok.
What I find strange at the moment, is that, under the statistics for browsers, Firefox is now on top (about 60%) and IE under that at about 30%. With the reduced number of unique visitors, I'm wondering if I've somehow cut myself out of IE searches or something. They usually have been in reverse position and the numbers higher.
The google numbers also are lower than before, yet when I google the site, it seems to come up just as quickly for me as ever (I mean in the first pages where I would expect it to be, for my search terms)
The business is a niche variety, so huge numbers are not as important, but I'm just confused as to why the stats seem to have changed so much.
Is it my re-design, my attempt to rename pages, renaming of photos, any of the things I've been doing to optimize it?
Also, almost forgot, I was doing VodaHits, and stopped a few months ago, so I at first thought that was the problem.
I'm pretty confused, (not to mention ignorant!), so would appreciate insights!
