Did anyone else notice anything?
The only changes we've noticed this week seem to revolve around timing of referrals. Similar to other threads about Google throttling traffic, we feel that since just after Thanksgiving in the US, we are roughly 6-7 hours off timing. Almost like someone changed our hours of operation, which they didn't.
Site - Consumer informational type site. Fully supported with live phone support, office staff, etc. Normal EST business hours. Caters to US traffic.
Before 11/25-ish, we were steady busy from 8am-8pm. Then somewhat dead from 9pm-7am.
After 11/25-ish, we are busy from 2pm-2am... then dead during the other 12 hours.
Very odd throttling... although total traffic is up 15-20% month over month, its just at weird hours now.
