Lately we have been watching many changes from Google's search algorithm including the Panda, but one that hit a lot of our clients was on the 16th. Google Shopping (Google Product Search) traffic dropped sharply for certain retailers with no apparent reason why.
It's not clear if Google was adjusting the algorithm for whatever reason, but where could those clicks have gone? Some of our clients had a decrease of 50+% in clicks that day which slowly rebounded, some to their previous levels but some that are still lower than usual. Forum members were impacted as well:
Some questions I have:
Where did the clicks go on March 16?
Did you experience a notable traffic increase from any different Google channels on that day?
What are you doing to combat this click drop?
