Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
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

Traffic on my biggest moneymaker site is up almost dramatically starting Friday, but I don't see any change in kw ranking myself.
For over a year now, I've been #1 for my biggest traffic keyphrase. Yet traffic for that keyphrase is up 50% or more since Friday.
Most other keyphrase ranking and traffic are relatively unchanged. I get traffic for 1,000's of keyphrases here, and don't know yet if longtail has increased.
Anyone notice a small tick in the SERPS today (2pm PST?)
Yes unfortunately but perhaps we will get a tock pretty soon. I can't quite figure out what the change is. I'm looking at the hypothesis that back link quality from on topic sites have lost some of their weight. One competitor I watch closely got a boost and this is the only thing I can put my finger on.

caffeine is served directly on google.com on 3 out of 10 proxies i tried yesterday...
All rankings now are about -30, very strange. I hope its temporary....it looks as if big companies are winning the prize and small companies are getting the big queeze... I smell class action law suit....
Whitenight: Spyware? What did I miss?
