Any clues what we have here on the 24th?
Googlebot activity has been untypically high for 72 hours now. Monday sales down. Tuesday sales were off the charts high. Today is tracking below normal for this time of day. Traffic in SEO and PPC is on the high side of normal. Panda seems to be in hibernation.
Yo Google, it is difficult to run a business with so much uncertainty (up and down). I bet you're making a killing in advertising as businesses spend more to stabilize. The more instability the more money... Don't push too hard, we webmasters bite.
On another note, alternative media (you know, TV, Radio and Print) is starting to look attractive.
