On the other hand, places like facebook and leading portals are grabbing up some of the search traffic. People are basically performing other activities besides search.
Who is getting the traffic? I'd like to know.
seems more like a Google system problem than actual serp related problems

max - no, it's not personalized results, I have that turned off and I am signed out of my Google WM account.
The question is, how can traffic be regained?
Either the web designers in my city are all fantastic at SEO or you can't sign our of personal results.
There are two different phenomena:
1. Personalized results based on your search history. Happens when logged in and Search History is active.
2. Customized results based on your IP address and cookies. Happens even when you are logged out.
My site has been pretty consistent across the different datacenters, any time it's been hit and dumped from the first page to the nether regions it has not been a result of the top ten sites making any changes I can see,( I do check their code and links on a regular basis).
