Definitely a change Sunday or Monday. Seeing traffic up since then.
Of course, if it's anything like the last uptick in traffic I saw, it'll be gone by next week.
EDIT: These results aren't too different for me, just some slight shifting here and there that seemed to have helped me.
Here's what I don't understand: Websites which have no business being in the top 10 are hanging out there for the past month+.
A blog which has 1 comment on all the front-page posts combined. And the posts are ripped off from other websites. It is 1 year old, poor backlink profile. TONS OF ADS above the fold. Doesn't load quickly. Has a spammy title "Tiny Widgets for Him | Tiny Widgets for Her" is the title.
And this site has MOVED UP every single week since the beginning of March. Is now in the top 5.
Exhibit B & C:
Blogs which have very few comments and are not even in English or have an English domain name. They have some ads, but not too many and are probably just OK loading time.
Here are their titles:
"Tiny Widgets for Pakistanis" and "Tiny Widgets in Urdu"
Click to the page, hardly anything is in English and it's all in Urdu.
If this is what Google thinks people want to see when searching in English, I'm amazed.
EDIT: by English domain name, I simply mean .com or .us or uk, ca, etc. They are using things like .pk, even saw .tk in there somewhere. Nothing against that and think it should be possible for them to rank there, but when the only single thing on the website is an English title, it's ridiculous to rank it that high.
