Anyone have any ideas on what kind of update it was?
Google's been doing this for a while now to give big buisnesses a boost at Christmas time. Normally you'd have to really analyze the data to notice but Google didn't even bother hiding it. I wonder if they're even going to bother removing it, just sneak in a permanent change under the radar.
I've been saying for years now, do not put all your eggs in the Google basket, whether it be Adsense or relying on visitors from Search. They will screw you over if you are not a major player. The internet is moving towards big business just like brick and mortar stores and Google is leading the charge.
