|1921:|| Thread of Year Nominee - Google Traffic Throttling and Shaping |
The topic of Google traffic throttling came up a good number of times over the past two years or more. Some doubt that it happens - others are convinced but have trouble breaking through the wall of other's doubt.
Last year I saw the analytics for one site that showed a drop to zero Google traffic every day at around the same time - it stayed at zero until the next day and then it cycled again. I also saw another major enterprise site that only had first page ranking for a specific 4-hour period every day. Both of the cases persisted for many weeks, but both eventually "returned to normal".
Just recently someone else contacted me with the graphs to show something very strange. Three months of nearly level Google traffic (unnaturally level in my experience) followed by a huge spike that lasted 4 hours - I'm talking up 1,000%.

|1922:|| Thread of Year Nominee #2 : SEO Benefits from Affiliate Links|
There are several ways that a site can receive SEO benefits from affiliate links. This basically boils down to being another "flavor" of URL canonicalizatoin issues. And as such the same techniques can be used to fix the issue.
Also Google cannot always tell what is/is not an affiliate link... nor do they always care or "try" to detect them. I think people are more paranoid than they need to be about this....couple of ideas that you might want to consider to eliminate the dup content and split link juice issues caused by the canonicalization problems associated with affiliate links: (-subscription required)
