Webmasterworld seeing fewer long tail searches might be a devaluing of forums in general? It might also still be affiliate related since forums repeat things like user profile links and such many times per page like affiliate sites send links to the same re-direct page many times per page.
I did say there needed to be more questions - I only asked questions related to the site I personally saw lose long tail search traffic. That site btw has now seen it's bounce rate drop 7% since the change so maybe the algo is working, the pages visitors bounced from are ignored more now than before.
#what was your overall bounce rate? answer = before 47%, after 40%
