    After an expected October traffic slow down, my sites traffic has really been going through the roof recently (last 2 weeks). Anyone else been seeing a nice traffic rise? Could this be the "pre-Christmas" traffic that haunts websites looking for stuff to buy later down the road (and of course buy now, too!).

    I experienced that too, but my opinion is that there must have been a change in the search algorythm of google.

    That's what I initially thought too, but, my rankings have pretty much stayed the same in Google over the past 3 months. Yet, I'm seeing a steady rise in shopping related traffic - even though the vast majority of my keyword terms have remained the same in Google for many months.

    I'm sort of hoping that perhaps all those people that have bookmarked my site are hopefully coming back for a repeat visit.

    Traffic record in September, then broken in October.

    Sales, well, that's another story...

    I've noticed a nice traffic surge, too. I see an increase every month, but this month is more than normal. Can't say it's a new Google algorithm because most of the traffic increase has been from bookmarks and direct entry of URL. Ranking for most keywords has remained the same or gone up a little. Some new holiday keywords are in the top ten results with a greybar for PR. I'm expecting that to change soon, I hope.

    Nice increase in traffic, due mainly too more paid submissions to INK. Weird thing in 3 days with BeFree i already have half the commissions i earned in Oct. CJ steady, Performics dead.
