    Daniel – Thank you!!!

    I’ve been tearing my hair out for the past week trying to figure out where all our ‘search / organic’ traffic went! It’s really frustrating that Google didn’t mention anything before or after making the switch.

    Forgot to ask… are you also seeing traffic drop after the Feb 1 ‘search / organic’ change? Did they also change how they calculate the traffic?

    Thanks again,

    Ben Krull

    Ben, I am almost sure that the change does not affect the calculation of traffic, you should still see the same trend for organic traffic, the only change is in the distribution.

    Hey – does this mean that internal traffic, i.e. site search queries, will no longer be counted as ‘search’ too?

    Or do sites still need to ‘addIgnoredRef’ for that?
