Somebody's playing games alright!
The past few days have exhibited very strange patterns of low, yet highly convertible traffic vs. high traffic levels than don't convert at all. The biggest differences on the two group are the referrals. It's the casino wheels spinning again, now in real time.
When everything stated going TU in 2010, these periods stretched for days or weeks, now it seems they've go it down to "minute by minute" if not nanosecond to nanosecond.
On a good day, we convert multiple times on the hour, all day. Now our pattern of conversions is very, VERY flaky. one in the morning, always around the same time (7am), then nothing for hours, then BAM! three in a row, separated by only 2 minutes each. All the while our serps look unchanged. Google remains a riddle wrapped in an enigma.
