Terror attack harms websites

By Mohnish On December 4, 2008 2 Comments

Due to that terrorist attack in the city of Mumbai (India), traffic on Sensonize.com was reduced for around 2 to 3 days. Most hurt sites were educational and job related sites.

After the terrorist attack on Wednesday evening, the traffic reduced for the day. On Thursday, for some of my sites the traffic was reduced to around 50%. And so were the earnings. The traffic slowdown even carried to Friday and somewhat on Saturday as well.

When I checked my stats for those days, I thought may be something went wrong. May be I lost some search engine rankings, or my server went down temporarily. I checked all of it. No rankings were down. No server went out. The traffic was reduced for many of the sites and across the servers. So the only explanation I could give myself was that this happened only due to that terrorist attack in Mumbai. For those who don’t know, I am from Mumbai and I was around 1 KM away from the place the firing took place and I lucky to leave my office about 15 mins early! 

Did any of your site suffer such attacks? Or, did you even check your stats for those days yet?
