Sorry. On-and-off traffic is not the same as batches of traffic that don't convert - which is what I was talking about by the name "zombie."
On-and-off traffic is definitely part of today's picture - not just from Google but also from Bing. But I wouldn't call that "zombie traffic". However, on-and-off traffic is also not the same as traffic throttling, which would be designed to enforce a maximum limit on a site. Those reports are pretty rare to.
How can we keep a focus on our analysis here? Do we need a separate thread for "on and off" traffic? It's so much more common that such a discussion would swamp zombies and throttling.
