Check out this recent "news": Different Algorithms Can Apply To Different Sites At Different Times [seroundtable.com]
It's as though in different markets and different spots on a serp, different conditions trigger entirely different algos... and there might be one algo for the top half of the serp, and then different algos for each spot after that, with Google perhaps hoping to normalize these as it's tried to do with Universal.
We've been able to get a slight increase in traffic since MayDay. It was done through lots of hard work [to get to] pretty much normal in terms of traffic
Then the biggy. 12th October, huge referral shift. Traffic-neutral, but conversions back at pre-Sept level. In other words, we are now 20% up on sales. The referrals are NOT the same (even particularly similar) to the the pre-Sept level. It looks alot like a 6-week algorithmic test-program for our site, and we passed.
When did the... quality... returnWent 1st Sept, came back in spades 12th October. Raw traffic up 20% the whole time.
They are tiny sites compared to the people who post here.
with flushed cookies and not logged in, we're not getting matched results.
why would google show different results per the way we are referred to them? New way of split testing perhaps?
