Can you mention any examples of such businesses/industries? would love to hear of any particular cases (not because i dont believe you ;) just because ive been curious about this since forever - industries where traffic/business comes mostly from non-search aka non-volatile channels)
I think social media...as in forums, twitter, facebook-sort of stuff taking away from search is the future (not saying search will die ;)).
One justh as to look at the industry all of us are in - internet marketing/web stuff....How many times do you do a google search to find the content you want to find? I dont do that too often...
of course, the generic www might take decades (or it might never happen) to catch up with a niche as web-savy as this one, but i think there's a shift going on.
wait a second...is my theory wrong?lol...back in 1997 (or so), how did you people find information about SEO? (when fewer forums,blogs,etc. on the topic were around)? using search engines (much more than now)? or not?
