6:01 am on my 13 year old site has died. For over an hour this morning, ZERO traffic according to GA. My other analytics seem to confirm this. Apparently whatever I am seeing in the serps (logged out) is simply an illusion. It's clear nobody is finding us for any terms. This event trumps May Day 2010 1000 fold.
It's been fun, but this time I'm out, fired, kaput. Thanks Google.
Google is now manipulating results either on IP or cookies.... or something. The only way to see the true results is via Google Chrome in Incognito mode.
If I look at a site and then return to the results at a later date the position has almost always been modified. This is without being logged in and Web History off.
