@diberry Yes i see the same on my 12 year old ECOM. After penguin i lost 20% of searches and the same 20% of visitors. But throttling was in place before Penguin. I guess its all about sharing the traffic, being fair to everyone, its a VERY easy way for google to ensure that its not just those that GAME them best that get the most customers.... it seems reasonably fair to me.
For anyone to seriously think that considering the billions of websites out there that their site is REALLY the best, and they are the only one deserving of a good search result ... c'mon
