So overall traffic continue to rise without a slap back down to your usual levels after the initial boost? This means the more pages you have the higher your traffic will be! This is different compared to my information site where my new pages receive ranking / traffic while my overall site's traffic remains steady. The "winner" or "fresh" pages of my site sucks google inbound traffic from my older pages. Then once the "freshness" boost ends, the traffic returns to my older pages. Which kinda killed my motivation to add new content onto the site.
Are your pages automatically generated with prices pulling in from different websites? Or you manually go through the databases? In my mind with price comparison, you compare a couple of widgets together right? So that widget page A compare Widget A, B, and C. And widget page B compare Widget B, A, C. Does this entail multiple pages (URL) with same information, but only "order" or "layout" differences?
How about user metrics? Do the users typically have instantly bounces or they continue to compare more prices with different items? Do many of your pages never receive any traffic at all? It seems that with exact match in mind, many pages probably receive no traffic at all on some days. (unless they search for that exact term).
Has any of the google updates affected you in the past?
