backdraft7 - As tedster noted, traffic reports are likely to be less helpful than some analysis that characterizes your site and your situation. It's been so long that I've forgotten... are your product categories targeted for localized results, in the way, say, that timwilliams suggests that his are?
Additionally, are others getting throttled only on localized searches, or does this extend to searches that may not be localized at all?
Are any experiencing throttling in locations where placenames are ambiguous and there's likely to be confusion? This might apply either when you've targeted such locations, or might simply happen to be located in such a place. Please refer back to my May 2, 2012 thoughts about possible geo-confusion (or testing?) between the US and Australia in this thread...
Google Updates and SERP Changes - May 2012
Again, I'm thinking that Google may be testing more than simply geo factors at this time.
