if Google can *detect* what's happening on your site after their traffic arrives, couldn't they manipulate future traffic according to their own goals if they wanted
Throttling traffic + goal rate = throttling sales.
Just because you don't have goals set for your site in GA or any other software doesn't mean that Google does not have your conversion rate / goal calculated. They can easily estimate what your goal pages or goals are via - thank you pages, sign up pages, Adsense clicks, etc.
