I've noticed over several days now that the longer-tailed serps I pay attention to, seem to be filled a bit more with "big-brand-names" and quite a bit more "nearly-exact-match-domains.tdl".
Our main business seems to have steady ranking of our main keywords, but like many others are reporting, search referrals seem to be off about 15-20%.
We're hopeful that the traffic/demand dip is weather related since spring is really in full bloom in most of the USA. I assume by the crowds at my local big-box-hardware store this weekend, many others are spending time in their yards also.
