and especially not e-commerce
That's an interesting observation. I wonder if this was a desired/planned outcome or just the result of the fact that ecom sites have a different "finger print" in the overall scheme.
It helps build direct traffic and goes directly after serving your market instead of using Google as a (not so dependable) middle-man.
This is going to be difficult for some to grasp but I've been saying it for years, google must be considered competition, we must get our traffic before google does.
