Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I detect no keyword loading using my site analysis software, yet they -100 just half my site's keyphrases. Very suspect.
4. On good days, the traffic source countries have a higher percentage from the US and UK. On bad days, a high percentage of traffic comes from India.
2. The traffic share to the free pages has increased, and non-free pages decreased.
1. Google has perhaps weighted my site as having a high percentage of free content and sends a larger proportion of non-paying users my way.
The real question, and I presume the reason for this thread, is to figure out how they are doing this.
I still wonder what would happen if you:
--Got rid of any Analytics, Adwords, WMT, or anything else Google could possibly be using to know about your traffic
You'd need to block any visitor using Chrome. And even then, there's a good chance that some ISPs sell their data to Google. I'd say it's very futile - Google (and Bing) will be watching website traffic and using it in their algorithms.
there was no loss in traffic, yet there were very unnatural flat sales periods
