Thanks for the traffic answer. So with that number you pretty much gotten hundreds more sales. Did the actual traffic increase too with the ranking increase?
I am speculating that user metrics can go deeper within a site. A completed transaction may mean that user is completely satisfied to a point of completing the transaction. If google can read it they would place more importance on it rather than dwelling time, bounce rate, or any other metrics no?
Was it more profitable for the whole site after slashing the prices? With the ranking and traffic increase, what did it do to your bottom line? (I would reckon to keep the test going for longer period of time if you guys are making more money! Why not?). I do think 1 weekend of testing is not enough to get a truly great picture.
Maybe google cannot exact tell prices but rather by the increased transaction done by user...to determine that the site or product is of higher value?
I think I read somewhere Google can track downstream or visit flow. How many pageviews downstream within the site can Google track? Is there any way to find out? Maybe Google tracks users all the way to "transaction completed page"?
