Sweden has the answer!
Sweden is the only country in wmt that is showing a consistent recovery to april levels, massive drop 1st may then recovery 13th may.
A site: search on google.se is also the only version of google that i can get what i class as a reliable answer, it is half what every other google location shows but critically directly corresponds with the clickthrough to the site. It corresponds 100% with clickthrough, wmt and all previous statistical data gathered over the years.
So the conclusion is, dont trust site: (except in sweden for us). The pages reported as listed in sitemaps must just be on the list to go live but are not yet accessible from searches.
Same conclusion as all month - google is broke! OK OK not quite as broke but doing a massive update which seems to take us back to where we started.
To get to this ive tried over 300 different google ips - same site: result. Every country version of google, same site result. Its is only sweden that seems to give me numbers that make sense.
