      Yep, Penguin 2.1. Google has been so unpredictable lately; my traffic has doubled due to this change however I am trying to diversify my traffic sources because you just never know what's coming next.

    That sounds like a coincidence, to me, and/or possibly also caused partly by SERP's changes?

    Does most of your traffic come from Google? If so, ranking changes will probably be the answer: there have been some recent/current algorithm changes affecting the SERP's, as so often happens.

    You can perhaps learn more by investigating your rankings (but don't forget to clear your browser cookies and history first, or just use a different browser, otherwise where your site appears to rank for various keywords when you search, yourself, won't be what other people are seeing).

    I went from 800 plus to 80 a few months ago just after a Google Update. Am STILL trying to recover.
