After 5 months of supplemental hell about 1300 of my pages have reappeared in Google's index over the last two weeks or so. My traffic has risen steadily, but is still not nearly as high as it was at the beginning of '06. I have noticed that even though traffic is coming in very few people are contacting me to buy anything. Today I looked at my Google traffic and I see why...the Google searches coming in are mostly from foreign Google searches...France, UK, Germany, Poland, India, etc. While it's nice to get additional traffic, I know from experience that foreigners never buy anything. Has anyone else noticed this shift and does anyone know why it might be happening? The only thing I can think of is that for some reason my pages are just ranking better in the foreign Google indexes than in the US version.

You might want to take a look at my posting in the DC Watch thread:


I believe that on 27th June, Google introduced a bug that corrupted large chunks of their geographic and language partitioning data.
