Let’s all keep in mind that Americans' confidence in the economy is lower than at any point since the depths of this recession. The Conference Board reports that consumer confidence fell to 39.8 in October. The WSJ says that “Economists called the new reading worrisome but said a silver lining is that plunging confidence hasn't translated into less spending—yet.” We webmasters are a leading indicator because we’re looking at our metrics almost real-time. So how much of this is Panda or bad quality traffic and how much is consumer confidence?
Are folks not hit by the algo changes seeing roughly the same conversion?
