From what I can see so far we've not suffered from a loss of traffic post update on any of our sites.
I agree , from what i monitor, no loss of overall traffic , but clearly if "Place Search" is shifting top positions to the bottom of the SERP's , Google must be compensating those sites with other traffic. Are they doing it to assist sites with the transition - no sudden shocks ?
Am i right ? or wrong ? What are others seeing. - Is Google traffic shaping more referrals into effected sites ? ( aka Google throttling )
