hey there, just thought id chime in to say that we noticed a sharp decline on June 28th as well. We also noticed another sharp decline on July 18th. It seems very odd, our main keywords that show our products are still showing up in their regular placements but since April we've dropped to about 25-30% of the traffic we were previously getting.
As well, we've begun using product listing ads through adwords, however we are not seeing the same rate of conversion as well, we can not really track anything as we have a Canadian billing address and AdWords will not let us link our Merchant Center acct. (we were able to input our Adwords id through the Merchant Center, but not vise verse.
I wish there were more people chiming in on this thread, however when the big changeover rolls out I bet this place will be lit up like Christmas (or the adwords forum will be at least!
