Okay, this is bizarre. For the past three days, Google.com has sent me the exact same number of searches. And once it hits that number, it stops sending me searches for the rest of that day. This sure sounds like throttling, which I thought in the past had been reserved for bigger sites than mine (which is relatively tiny compared to the throttled ones I've read about).
Has anyone seen throttling in relation to Panda? Or did we ever figure out what throttling was supposed to achieve? And yes, I know no one's proved it happens, but it's awfully strange to have exactly the same number of searches from Google.com three days running. Nothing even close to that has ever happened in the history of any of my sites. Sometimes it's close, but never exact.
ETA: I just searched myself and clicked a time or two, just to mess with it, LOL. So today's number is now slightly up, but still? Too strange. I'll see if I get anymore natural clicks tonight.
