You two are definitely not alone. Check out this thread - it gets positively creepy:
Be sure to read Drall's posts (and Tedster's responses) if you don't want to read the whole thread. Drall offers some solid numbers that solidly indicate *something* extremely unlikely is going on. No one can figure out how Google could be doing this (especially to sites that don't run Analytics), and yet no one can come up with another explanation (and they really do try).
I would LOVE to learn some day what's really going on with these sites. It's just too odd that it's always Google that seems to do the compensating to keep the traffic static. It's hard to imagine it's NOT something Google's doing, and yet... how can they know or even accurately guess our overall traffic? What could they have in place that would allow them to do that?
