Since January and the release of Caffeine I've had drops in search traffic reported to internal sections of several sites. There has also been an impact on traffic arriving at internal pages from queries relevant to different sections.
Section related traffic landing on the homepages tends not to be affected. Together this suggests to me there has been a shift in the algorithm in regard to site architecture that is specifically impacting traffic to site sub-sections.
The first thing I would like to is disprove is that the Caffeine spider is not using a unique useragent. Anyone discovered this?
Positions have fluctuated quite a bit but the more established stuff tends to be ok. Thoughts?
