Concerning the thread
that Brett_Tabke started here [webmasterworld.com...] which I am hoping we'll discuss it here, Brett raises an interesting point which a lot of us myself included failed to raise.
Google Referrals Way Down Since the Change?
The last week was the biggest single change in our referral profile graph since florida 2004.
Well, since mayday, one major site of mine has seen a sharp drop in the G* referrals, that was incremental, but aggressive, lower and lower as days go by. One major thing stands out though is the sharp rise at the same time of the Gbot activity while that was / still is happening. I second what Brett thinKS, I have not seen this since Florida either.
This mayday update is IMO equal if not of higher importance and significance than Florida, where true BOOMS and BUSTS will truly be seen again. For Florida, we seen a lot more Busts than Booms, the media attributed it to all sorts of macro-economical variables, attributes, causes and effects, but forgot G* was behind most of it, many massive entrepreneurial ideas and sites just vanished then or reduced to a grain of their former mass!
