My part time job - 100 computers that are scrubbed each shutdown/boot up cycle. 5 shared ips but it's random so 1 user may touch all 5 in a week. Gmail is blocked. How could they accurately profile in that case?
Almost all our converting traffic is widget a blue, red widget c. Our best traffic is brand widget c. Any of those could be informational or transactional.
Those two searches meant something different 12 months ago where 70% would buy. Now it's lower as the economy slides. Is that going to be misinterpreted?
I think they know this, and whatever metrics they are using are based more on original clicks. I will say since the uptick in traffic our bounce rate is 10% better.
Also. Maybe what we thought was branding was the pooling of searches into the informational bracket. Therefore the brand was first. I do believe they are not far off from a major layout change and that's is part of this test too.
