Did anything happen today, Thursday?
My Penguinized site sailed through the Panda refresh of Monday just fine - in fact, Tuesday and Wednesday were my best days in several months. Suddenly on Thursday, a really steep drop - we're talking low double digits.
But the strange thing is, my pages are still ranking where they have been, give or take a position here and there. I looked at them through various proxy servers, hoping to get as objective a view as I can, given the way Google seems to be localizing results and testing various datasets.
I don't get it. How can your Google traffic drop that much when your page rankings haven't really moved at all? It's as if everyone just spontaneously decided not to search my terms, or not to click me even when I was a top 3 result.
