Is it at all clear who, if anyone, has picked up your own referrals/traffic/business?
In our niche amazon did eat 90% of the lost traffic. But amazon began to get popular in germany two years ago. They got an extra traffic boost from google since then.
80% of friends i am talking to are going straight to amazon or one of the two big price compare engines. They use google to find this sites. Like typing in search box "amazon".
This now makes it extra silly because if google does use search metric, this isnīt realy a search because the users knows what he wants and is to lazy to write down the url.
Users get used to favorite sites. I think the overall search for for google begins to fade. The search statistic just shows the disrelevance of the current serps and that users arenīt sufficient with this.
