---- Google Referrals Way Down Since the SERP LayOut Change?

Traffic on one crumbled today... About 25% of usual for a Sunday.
But I don't see how it could cause "major changes".
How about when they put a messed up image of the site in the SERPs rather than an accurate image or screen shot? I could see this as being one way at least.
A site I run that looks great when you visit it, but the image they show is an enlarged, blurry portion of a navigation section... (It's the site I'm referring to above.) The image they show as 'the site' is a snip of an image, and not even the full image at the correct size / resolution.
Honestly, I probably wouldn't visit it if I saw the inaccurate representation of what the site actually looks like, because it looks totally unprofessional in the SERPs even though that's not at all the case when you visit...
