@n00b1 Of course it's more complicated. I'm sure if they do something like this then it's going to be applied differently for different kinds of queries.
The pre-update flood of traffic has been observed by quite a few people.
Explain to me why Google needs to send a flood of traffic prior to an update if they aren't using it for metrics? I'm not talking about them snooping on Analytics or using Chrome data. I'm talking about them using *their* own site metrics to work out searcher satisfaction.
