    I'm asking this poll question because I've got a site that I've set up as a hobby (it's not anything listed in my profile) in 2009 and haven't had the chance to work on in about a year. I haven't changed layout, content, anything.

    I've noticed that, since around December 24, the traffic to it has gone up threefold and more nicely the Adsense revenues are over 400% compared to what they were before, and it seems to be continuing to grow, at least in the short run. Now, it's not enough to quit working with clients and go off and do my own thing, but it's enough to guarantee a monthly payment from Adsense and more than cover my hosting bill (along with some other sites that run it). I'm noticing more high-PPC click-throughs as well (since Adsense is tied to my Analytics, I can get that granular with it).

    Now...two things have happened that are of significance and that may explain this, but I'm not sure which of the two applies, or if both apply.

    1) I moved all of my sites to my new dedicated server on December 24. None of the other sites on my site seem to have experienced anything similar, though, so I'm thinking this doesn't have much to do with it.

    2) I read this post from Matt Cutts that suggests that an algorithm change was made somewhere in this time period, although it could have been later.

    Again, I'm trying to figure out which of these two apply, and if there's any other factor I don't already know about.
