I would imagine this is from indexed pages that are now removed or a listing/auction has ended, so a redirect is in place.
Huh? Maybe for you however our factories still have another week's holiday, I don't expect normal Indian traffic to return until next week however I am making realworld products, not here today gone tomorrow.
Just give until Wednesday.
Seeing changes again this morning... when will this end :(
.. Google ultimately clearly wants the SERPs to just contain paid entries and they are already getting close to the first page being that in some niches / keywords
Google won't be happy until we are all bidding each other up to spend more and more per click on Ad Rankings.

IMO, that kind of statement is hyperbole
Why mess with a winning formula? Even if a certain percentage of searchers click on ads, the presence of organic results is what brings those searchers to the search engine.
The bottom line is that Google pays partially with stock options and those employees (and investors) want to watch share price continually increase...that is going to happen anyway they can make it happen.
Google has systematically killed off traffic from organic serps since at least March of this year by loading the page with ads and many other links to its own properties. The clear intent is to drive us all into desperation and start paying Google for the lost traffic and bidding up ad prices..
Maybe in the commercial space. That certainly isn't true for most of the informational queries that I watch (some of which are quite competitive). There's a lot more to search than products and services.

you see similar statements all over the internet in SEO forums, google groups and even coming from some prominent SEOs when interviewed.
people who click through from an answer box, rich snippet, etc. are likely to be searchers who are in search of in-depth information
IMO, people who depend heavily on SEO--or who regard it as their "value add"--are going to be more vulnerable than people who don't.
As far as pages being loaded up with ads are concerned, that's less of a concern (again, in my opinion) for informational publishers than for commercial sites. The bigger issue for informational publishers is the growth of "answer boxes"
Something big may be coming in the first week of November - not unexpected. The traffic slowness is usually a good indicator of that.
Problem is the informational queries are also being targeted by the eccommerce companies - it is standard black/grey hat practice to produce various "independent" info sites that act as doorway pages to their eccommerce site so that will only get worse as people are fighting for the scraps and the companies with the most resources will be able to do that the most..

This time of year is very busy and the economy is booming.
No, the economy most certainly is NOT booming...The US economy is heading straight for a big recession.
