If a site was deemed poor by its (once)users then if it were an ecommerce site it wouldn't have sold much. What about the ecom sites that were selling just fine up until these so called quality updates by Google? Have Google deemed them poor quality hence the lack of traffic which = reduced conversions? If that were true why would said sites seem to have on/off periods of conversions? How would this fit in with new sites? Would Google give them a boost to gather data? Personally I think the algo is just not working plain & simple, making any changes right now would be pointless. What I'd love to know is how Google seems to be able to limit conversions by monetary value rather than quantity of sales as that is what our figures seem to suggest. It's almost like once we have made £X our traffic & conversions all but go. Spookily we also see Gbot starting a cart session, I don't recall that happening prior to this year?
