I joined the other side because of gratitude and in no way to look or feel noble.
About a year ago I started a thread titled something like “Life without Google”. In that thread a lot of us that were hit with a penalty or for some other reason lost our Google rankings talked about how to make it without any Google listings. From that post a couple of people on this board and of course GoogleGuy helped me get my site back in the show. Well even if there is life without Google, being back in the show gave me a 20K increase in sales this year. I know there are people here that make more then that in a week, but to me it meant and still means a major change in a 30-year-old business. Things have never been so good.
Straight up, that’s the reason I coughed up the money. I’ll still use my free Opera but I also don’t have any problem sending some green energy toward an open place like this.
