What gets me is that Google KNOW exactly how well my e-comm site does - because I use Google Ads and PLA (Product Listing Ads). Conversion rate is around 5-7% on any given day which I think is very good for a <my niche> site. Yes, I have Google conversion tracking and it reports in my Google Ads campaigns how I'm doing. So Google know I'm converting well (and I mean....who knows really the intentions of every visitor - competitors, tyre kickers etc) - I guess the sites above me (including the junk sites) must be converting even HIGHER? Wow, never realised how easy it was to sell <my niche products>! Before anyone asks, my conversion rates were similar when I exclusively had organic traffic from Google. I guess they got what they want - a regular selling advertiser because they know I'll plough my earnings back into more ads. That's why the rubbish is at the top of organics....they're not going to advertise anyway, and 18 months after Penguin 1.0 people have been sufficiently trained to click on the ads....
