We are doing fine as a company (even or up over last year), but our PPC is doing significantly worse even though our site is better, products better etc and PPC has been fine through september. I'm not sure if people are comparison shopping more or what, but our CPA is flat and our conversions are 1/3 of last year month over month for Nov.

how are you doing?

Traffic is the same, but conversion rate down for majority of my clients, across several verticals. Perhaps this will finally get them to start testing landing pages like I've been advising for ever and ever...Times are tough

Everyone we have spoken with is reporting exactly the same thing, overall traffic to all the SE's is down maybe 30%+. It's hard to find anyone positive about anything other than how bad things are.

About the same, scaled to higher budgets.
