I think so tedster and the reason why I wonder if it's a big site thing (I'll know more in a week or so) is mine're doing the opposite... They're climbing then taking a 'big step back' then returning to the 'climbing steadily' pattern, which seems to be what some of the really big sites are doing, in reverse. I'm only watching a couple of the intermediate sites right now, but they're definitely behaving almost exactly the opposite of what the people reporting drops here are reporting right now.
I say I'll know more in a week or so, because today is comparable to the beginning of March levels... Way down from the average trend for a Monday, but they've done this before occasionally and returned to the overall trend within a few days. It's actually been going on this way for months...
I should probably also note: Last week and weekend were right on the trend, and today's an anomaly day again. Watching traffic on a graph over the last few months has actually been quite a bit like watching stocks. I've seriously thought about drawing trend lines to see if I could sell at the top, LOL.
