I have noticed over the last two months or so, a substantial decrease in organic clicks. My placement for keywords is virtually unchanged. For example, my placement for the keyword "Blue Widgets", is still say number 5 on the first page. So the only other thing that I could think of that could affect organic traffic is that you now have 4 ads instead of 3 ads at the top of the listings, which pushes down the organic listings even lower.

Anyone else notice a substantial decline in organics since Google introduced the new ad placements (where they eliminated the side ads) and now have 4 ads at the top?
