    At first I thought I must have pissed G off and I was pulling my hair out trying to find out why my google SE traffic is dropping so fast. Looks like this is updae to their algo. I have been seeing some major changes in Google since 4/1 and I dont think I am liking these changes. I dont like seeing my google SE traffic drop :(

    This part might hurt many autoblogs;
    "Simultaneously, Google will proceed to a crackdown on so-called scrapper websites"

    I hope everything will balance out in the next couple weeks. Its odd my google traffic dropped tremendously but earnings is the same. What is your experience since 4/1?

    Super Caffeine sounds a bit fishy to me they haven't even rolled out the full caffeine update yet and now there is a super caffeine one? I own a few site that relay on scrapped data only and I haven't experienced any issues yet.



    P.S I dont know if you noticed the but date on the post you quoted is April 1

    Not sure it's related, but got a lot of my sites down to under 2 second load times and traffic has increased 6x to some of them... They did have high load times before.

    Yes something is going on. I see that too. You might want to lower your speed.

    Whilst google is fiddling with Caffine, i've been concerntrating on driving traffic from other sources. Twitter, Tumblr, CHATROULETTE, Posterous. Also, there are other search engines - Bing anyone? Since i turned my attention to learning how Bing is running things, i've seen a 30% increase in traffic from them.

    Google will not always be the big boys in the search engine business, and if you don't learn to adjust now, its going to be harder in the future for yourself.
