Serps up but traffic down makes no sense.
It could do under a couple of normal conditions:
1. Are the Serps they are seeing only "their" Serps and not global/geo-targetted Serps making them believe they have better Serps than global reality?
2. In "general" (for many sites) overall traffic is lower at this time of year therefore even sites that dominate their sectors see lower earnings.
Interestingly only this week we were viewing some nice traffic graph charts for our sites and the reduction is almost identical for the last 10 years even though overall traffic has increased a huge amount.
FWIW my B&M businesses are extremely quiet with very low enquiry levels...again normal at this time of year for me.
