---- Sudden drop in traffic - but still in first position

THIS might explain it -
When possible, Google will customize your search results based on location and/or recent search activity. Additionally, when you're signed in to your Google Account, you may see even more relevant, useful results based on your web history.
The following information was used to improve your search results for widgets: Recent Searches You or someone else recently searched for widgets using this browser. Learn more If you're curious, you can see what a search for widgets looks like without these improvements.
The 'More details' link on your search results page can be used to display this page for approximately 30 minutes, after which it will no longer show this page.
So the option to shut off this "improved" feature vanishes in half an hour huh. If I wanted to see so many videos ranked highly I'd visit youtube... duh.
