    I know I didn't put a link in Twitter or Reddit, or Lifehacker, but my traffic just doubled, and checking the various traffic sources seem to indicate that the traffic is actually result from Google searches!

    Is this a sign that HP's weeding efforts are working?

    I'm thinking it's so sudden an improvement that maybe there's something wrong with the measurement, e.g. maybe the start time has frozen so the 24 hour window is growing linearly.
    I hope I'm wrong!

    either a rollercoaster or a result of new subdomains ranking higher. I know that #2 is a fact (for now smile)

    Google has pushed some hubs in their main and local search engines.A little change made the big difference in traffic.My traffic is also climbing up, but I am sure there is a tipping point.

      Mine has spiked too - more than doubled! Wondering too when some kind of ceiling is hit or even if there is another slump coming. tongue

    Traffic is still climbing, but CTR is dead in the water for today so far! Something strange about that, my CTR is usually fairly good and consistent.

    My adsense income today has reached levels I haven't seen since pre panada and it is early yet.

    It will be a couple of weeks before we can really say what kind of impact this huge boost is having for those lucky enough to be experiencing it. And it could just disappear before then...
