Yes, it's definitely early to start popping corks - especially as I have seen this twice since September now!
Considering that my main SERP has dropped from 1st to 3rd to 7th and traffic and conversions are up I have to speculate that longtail is back for me to atm.
Economy MUST have a part in this too so it is difficult to gauge anything.
Changes I have made have probably not had any part yet. I removed some footer links from 2 semi related blog shops that I own that have affiliate content on them. Don't know if they will make any difference - unnatural linking between my own sites is not as major sin as mirror sites linking from every page in my eyes - but I am not google!
