    This morning all of a sudden I have a stream of traffic from all over the place, google included. Before Penguin, this site had about 200UV a day. Post penguin it was getting between 20 and 30.

    Site is a Quasi authority site in the computer repair niche, 41 pages of good quality content.

    Suddenly this morning, so far 168 visitors coming into my site not only from google, but I am seeing an influx of traffic from forum posts, google Images, blog comments, and guest posts.

    I use Piwik, so my stats are in real time, and very detailed. I was not getting any of this volume until about 2 am (CST) May 01.

    Rankings seem the same, more or less but traffic is up....


    Dammed if I know why or how to duplicate it.

    All I can figure is that maybe all those sites are getting more traffic now, and I am benefiting indirectly from their traffic.

    Anyone else seeing it.?

    That's interesting... while my none of my sites were hit by the new algo updates, one of my sites did see an increase in traffic late yesterday - looking through GA there was a definite a shift in my organic keywords, looks like I gained rank on a bunch of tail end product related terms.

    Its Labor Day around the world. Pretty much everywhere with a western culture except US. My sites get a 2-300% surge these days.

    Interesting... makes sense for today, my spike yesterday was all US though, actually looks like it might be continuing into today.

    I'm super jealous. My rankings and traffic are as low as April 25 :(. If you find anything please share haha.

    Edit: h.udo's theory makes sense

    The question is: is any of that traffic converting? Getting any sales / clicks etc?

    Still there, not converting, and tapering off a little this morning. Strange....even pulling traffic off images with alt stuff like :"red arrow pointing left" "WPM logo"
