Poll: Do The Google Doodles Impact Your Traffic?

google doodle pollI've never thought about this but a Webmaster in the WebmasterWorld forums felt that whenever Google put up a special logo, aka a Google Doodle, his traffic from Google would be down slightly.

This webmaster wanted to know if others noticed that the Google logos served as a distraction to those about to search for something and Google but then were diverted to click on the logo, ultimately abandoning their initial search query and thus losing traffic to your site.

So I figured I make a poll asking if on days Google has logos, do you have more, less or the same traffic. How would you know?

Check the dates on either our logo posts or the Google logo directory and compare it with your Google traffic. Does it dip at all when there are special logos?

Here is our poll:

Please take the poll and have your colleagues take the poll.
