Was talking to the vp of one of our major brands. Their traffic is thru the roof so much so that they rolled out a backup server yet orders are down from resellers. They don't sell to end users so the traffic does them no good. I'm thinking maybe this is on their end, that they should no index pages etc.
Anyway traffic ended up down 18% from google, up 36% from bing and about 25% from yahoo. Google cpc impressions were down about the same as g or 22% yet ctr and cpc were both up. So whatever they're doing probably won't last long as in two days in the wild in my niche it's leading to much lower g traffic but more importantly impressions and clicks are down for the cash cow.
