I found it more difficult than average but not radically so. The 74.7 difficulty rating seems odd.

I think a good measure of the difficulty of a puzzle is how many people manage to solve it and how this compares to other puzzles of the same type. This latter figure is distorted by whether or not the puzzle is subscriber only.

The last time the Saturday 9x9 was subscriber only was 4 weeks ago and it was solved 101 times. Today's puzzle has been solved 71 times so far, which suggests that fewer people in total will solve it than last time around. To access whether this is significant or not, I think a few more data points would be helpful!
