Here's another oddity to consider (and maybe others saw something similar).
On Sunday and Monday traffic to my site shot up substantially, to page view and visitor numbers that I haven't seen in over a year. There was no outside influence I could think of that would suddenly drive traffic.
The traffic tapered off just a little on Tuesday and Wednesday, which is normal, but stayed above the levels from previous weeks.
The boost came from Google. Then the drop.
