We are US based ecom site, since last Friday, April 27, 2012, we noticed that our google traffic has dropped about 20%, but the conversion rate has gone up about 80%. Has anyone else noticed such pattern? Can this be possibly related to recent google changes?

If your traffic has considerably dropped but your conversions are increased, I would look at your recent content updates or Paid Search campaign adjustments. Take a look at your referring domains and the traffic from them to find out where you've lost traffic and where you've gained conversions.

...and your complaint is? Count your blessings, because not many others are seeing this pattern.
