That's perfect xcoder, you and ohno can start up a new thread about conspiracy theories with google stealing the converting traffic.
Somehow I highly doubt Google is able to pick out converting traffic and direct it towards other sites (besides yours), when they can't even serve good results or purge the index of all the spam. At some point you have to sit back and think, maybe it is actually something about my site that isn't converting....Just because your site converted well 1-10 years ago, doesn't mean that it is going to convert forever at the same rate. The web is very fluid and what people like (trust) changes. By sitting here complaining that it's Googles fault and not your own is ridiculous. Instead of wasting everyones time and making us filter through all of the useless posts, start a new thread and complain there. OR....try making changes to your site to convert the traffic you are currently getting OR go after new traffic.
