Traffic got Reduced for this Blog. Is it because of Google's recent EMD update?

Yesterday, I have noticed a huge "traffic drop" for this blog ( in the AdSense Report.

I had checked the Google Analytics Report also to confirm the drastic reduction in the web traffic. And, I came to know that lot of keywords which were ranking well in Google search results got affected heavily.

Even I got an alert message in my Google Webmasters tools with the subject " Big traffic change for top URL"

I couldn't understand the reason for this sudden traffic reduction.

According to the Google Analytics Report, the traffic reduction got started on September 29th.

By doing some Google search, I came to know that Google had released EMD (Exact Match Domain) updates on September 28. Many people reported that traffic got reduced for their sites also.

So, I am thinking that the EMD update may be the reason for this traffic reduction. But I couldn't understand the reason why EMD update should hit this blog as this blog domain name is NOT an exact match Domain.

If you have any comments about this traffic reduction, you can share it thro' the comments section of this post.

Hi Raj,
Nice to be here after a bit gap.
This is really a surprising news. Today i received a notification from Google adsense saying about its closing down/retirement of Adsense for feeds. Is there any connection with this to the new developments in this traffic reduction?

PS. Pl. remove the word verification from this blog. it irritate your readers and commentors. Best

We’re contacting you because you’ve enabled AdSense for feeds in your AdSense account. After carefully evaluating the product, we’ve decided to retire AdSense for feeds.

Starting December 3, 2012, we’ll discontinue serving ads via AdSense for feeds on RSS feeds and you’ll no longer see feed units in your My ads tab. To check if you’re currently generating any revenue from AdSense for feeds, visit your “Products” performance report and look for recent data for “AdSense for feeds”.

Please note that reporting on your feed ad units will remain available following the product retirement. FeedBurner URLs powered by Google will continue to function, but will no longer serve ads. As a result, it won’t be necessary to redirect your subscribers to different URLs or to take any other action in your account. For more details please visit the AdSense Help Center.

Rest assured, this upcoming change won't affect the availability of other AdSense products that you're currently using.

We appreciate your understanding and thank you for your patience as we continue to develop new features and offerings within AdSense.
