Okay, so everyone has had enough of G bashing, and let's be honest - we had to vent somewhere if you're suffering from lack of conversions. This week has been particularly awful for me personally. Anyway, i decided to do some more research on the topic aside from WW and see what came up.

I found this old thread on the G product forums, and it is quite similar to what we've been experiencing. Seems like some people have linked it to the Panda update that was occurring at the time. If that's the case, then I think we may have found our culprit.

Check it out

HeeHee I am tempted to buy the domain as we speak, but then again I think the whole thing maybe just flux
