Yeah but December was down as compared to November, for fairly obvious reasons. I'm sure search traffic is still growing, but a lot slower than 9% a month.

I think as people become more accustomed to searching, their searches are going to be more focused and the NUMBER of searches will drop, however the time spent on results will also drop meaning people are getting better at defining exactly what they're looking for.
