I am seeing the same on a number of client sites that i monitor. Excellent SERP positions for very good (popular) keyword sets yet hardly any clicks, and if you do get clicks...NO SALES. Traffic is considerably down on these sites.
This started happening only recently.
Very weird patterns indeed....maybe the entire world are just busy watching the 2010 World Cup...
The only other explanation is that it may have something to do with the Google auto log-in thingy. It is my guess that the SERPS probably look very different once one is permanently logged in (behaviour & history based SERPS).
As much as i hate being logged in when doing searches, I will have to try this theory for the entire month (so no more auto delete cookies, and flash cookies upon browser exit for me for a while).
