Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I have noticed a big increase in my Blog Traffic, but my keyword traffic is down. I am going to assume that Caffeine has not hit all data servers yet ? I would assume this because my contacts in Chicago, Iowa all say my keyword rankings are -30. My assoicates on the west coast say I am on the first page. Here in Texas I am on the first page. The wierd thing is my traffic is not really down. hmmmmmm

I am assuming this on some Valid Grounds. This is based on my research and i hope it won't be ridiculed until 20th Feb....
Its toggling between 1 and 3. Now we are stuck on 3 for 3 days. This is just for competive keywords, I am on the first page for less competive keywords. Very strange....

What I think I'm seeing is a stronger weight for the "recent backlinks" factor.
Yesterday traffic to our site was rockin! Today.. down about 25% of normal. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed a shift.
the result would be a sillier search engine, one that is more focused on fad
At least according to the patents, this link devaluation factor also has to do with the freshness of the linking page and site.
The continued appearance of new links would be a strong compensating factor
Google forgot that guestbook and blog commenting also fit the bill for freshness; I'm seeing lots of sites promoted solely by those old tactics again.
It's ridiculous, but I've decided to join them and hired a blog commentor last month. Now I think I'll double his work.
