This is really bad, I found some of my site has been affected by this plugin wp mobile pack. Traffic drop from 2K unique visitors daily into 400 unique visitors daily. I try to diagnose the problem and finally found it (after a month *lol*). This drop cause by wordpress plugin called wp mobile pack. It’s actually nice plugin to convert our wordpress site become mobile friendly site with option to view desktop version or mobile version.

The big problem is this plugin will make your wordpress site become mobile friendly without change any meta including your page title. For example my meta description is article title+20 words article content+site/blog title. If we enabled this plugin it will created an duplicated meta and duplicated title, in the end it will caused big problem impact in SEO.

Solution: I try to using google webmaster tools called parameter handling. But I’m not sure if this things will affect better on next index date. Actually I was thinking about giving meta noindex and nofollow on mobile site themes but it’s looks like this mobile themes can’t modified since theme structure following desktop version. I also thinking giving rel canonical maybe can help us to fix this problem.

The result in today is better than yesterday I seen traffic growth 40%-60% from normal time. I will removed this plugin from my site if there is no working solution for this problem.
