I'm not convinced it's traffic throttling to even out traffic to sites or otherwise simply because doing something like that could turn out to be a legal mine field for Google.
What I see are different data sets cause different traffic patterns and depending on the day, I can see several data sets rolling through.
I think it's just them testing different filters, etc. and the consequences are erratic traffic. Iíve been seeing this since the beginning of summer.
Google does not care one bit about any individual sites traffic nor whether or not these data set rolls actually decimate a business.
Thatís Google and you better learn to deal it with because things are not going to get any better.
