Has anyone compared this to server speed? I wonder if google is sending traffic to test server speed?
Our server is a quad core dedicated box with extra memory and SCSI raid drives. It is easy enough for Google to see our hosting configuration. Speed has never been an issue.
have you seen the same applied to your competitors ?
Yes, I know for a fact that my competitors are suffering the same problems too. (don't ask me how, lol)
I also use MUNIN on my server and if you look at an Apache Accesses by Year graph, I can see wild fluctuations starting in May...previous years had lower statistical kurtosis (peakedness).
