---- Converting vs non-converting traffic from Google referrals and others

I would just like to echo TypicalSurfer in the "Google Updates and SERP Changes - November 2012" thread which i feel was spot on!
TypicalSurfer said: If you read the transcript from googles last earnings conference call they plainly stated that monetizing user intent was a big part of their direction.
Understanding their intent will help you understand the algorithm. Stop the magical thinking and the promotion of google as a search engine, they are interested in monetizing the worlds information, putting an ad overlay on anything they can.
You won't defeat the lion by pretending it is a rabbit.
Nothing to do with your website. They are clearly cherry picking our customers.
Their PR clown will hopefully confirm that soon... under oath.
