Something major was released about 3 days ago here too...traffic has dropped like a rock. My site used to "wake up" around 4am with plenty of visitors, today it's been at 0 visitors for hours (now 10am). I run a dedicated server but now I'm wondering why? I could handle this traffic with a free hosting account. Google continues to cherry pick keywords for their own interests. No government agency will ever find them at fault of having a conflict of interest though since they ARE the government.
This is typically our busiest season, but it's already lower than our lowest period in July.
Trickle down economics will soon choke off one of their best income sources....us.
