that's a cracker, they also moved the gplex to the suburbs of Amsterdam, and here is me thinking they are on caffeine!
Aha! You solved it! Google.nl is now the default.
Seriously, on one large site, I have people (two figure) coming from G* search results page 23, page 14 etc for keywords they normally land on the first page, yet they still insist on visiting the loyal site they always knew offered what they wanted by flicking the pages until they found it. Why can't they just paste the domain on the address bar and search onsite...
What this means is the results are mostly literally bottoms up for now!
You know what, why can't there be coalition of SEs, is competition has to be the only way. Cooperation could also work, when G* is doing its update, 301 redirect all to Bing and vice versa and share the revenue, at this moment in time when there is a HUNG SERPs, it's ideal!
