On February 2nd, our site experienced a huge drop in traffic. Anyone else see this? My first suspicion is that G figured out a way to collect as much Superbowl related traffic as possible. Our 10 years of traffic and sales records show no drops on previous Superbowl Sunday's. Looks like a big update was unleashed.

@Andem I noticed that too on several searches. It comes and goes. Not sure if they're just testing it or rolling it out

In Feb month most of our client's faced drop in rankings and as well as in traffic. Conversions are also pretty less when compare to the previous months.

@Andem - Even I saw the same design changes SERP update what you have mentioned.

Further I noticed that Big "G" is testing a new SERP interface. While searching for the term "Baby", I have come across a totally new search results page. Giving more importance for videos, news and in-depth articles. I made a screenshot of it.

I just can't understand and predict the Google's behaviour.
