@garyr_h, since wednesday i see the old serps from for two weeks. All the referrers from blogs and forums are back but direct google traffic has been gone again.We gained about 40% the last two weeks in direct traffic, conversions, time on site very significant up, bounce rate down. Since wednesday the 40% are gone, time on site is very low, bounce rate is very high, conversions slide to Zero. I think there has not been an update but a pull back of what happend two weeks ago on that tuesday/wednesday, where we even donīt know what happened.
-i see a lot of junk
-very unrelated sites in serps
-brands, amazon ,ebay ( also haevy unrelated ) are back on page 1
-search for "searchterm" brings all but the searchterm
-also we are #1 for a kompetetive key we donīt get traffic, that wasnīt so the last two weeks.
-we get lot of foreign traffic and image search
-google shopping ads now in row with serps, oragnic listings are down the fold ( googles own algorithm would kill this site )
My opinion: all but good for the user but good for google income. We did not here many from Cutts in the last time, did we?
