I HATE AUTOCOMPLETE!
You are on the money Hollywood. The mayhem all started around the time "auto complete" and "instant" went main stream... and if that's not enough we then got hit by penguin and panda.
And if that's not enough, they then decided to start altering page titles, hide referrer keyword strings, flood the serps with adwords/youtube/images/shopping/plus results, throttle traffic to web sites and randomize geo targeting for all... and if that's not enough, they then went on penalizing websites for back links... and if that's not enough ... "insert here upcoming (soon) new plagues..."
P.S. Adwords team decided to broaden phrase and keywords match targeting at around that very same time, make room for all them affected poor souls...
