It seems that bot traffic on the site has continued to be more search bot than human. The users online tool logs show very heavy bot traffic.
Obviously the domestic search engines are crawling the site extensively. The Huawei Petal bot has also extensively indexed the site.
SEO purveyors are about as useless as it gets. SEO is not a dark art, content is king. Meta tags are standardized and its is all well documented.
Search traffic has improved somewhat now that the site is better understood. Most likely come the fall the traffic will be better and into 2022 I expect to see heavy human traffic.
