Three Schools of Thought
Google is Everything!
Entirely rational: It's how (many of) you make (most of) your coin
You either sell SEO/SEM services or your web-based revenue thrives or dies based upon your website's position in the SERPs
The flavor of the month is aged sites, aged links, trust, link growth pattern analysis, slow and steady redeployment of aged sites. That cat is out of the bag. No doubt the SE engineers are looking for those signals, making the sleuthing and counter-sleuthing game ever more byzantine . . and what to do about all the trashy .edu links . . and what to do about . .
Brute force, cunning or?
Google Doesn't Exist!A few true believers shake their heads, look askance, roll their eyes, groan.
It's an operating principal not a faux reality.
What's the SE's favorite flavor of the month? I don't care.
IF Google doesn't exist then I don't plan and/or act and/or design for Google. That doesn't mean I'm ignorant of taxonomy, metas, good descritions and <H>, helpful intersite linking
Google exists! Whoopee! I may get traffic. Great! If I don't? I don't miss what I don't count on and I'd rather not count on Google or Yahoo or MSN. Invest SE related revenue into other efforts to gain traffic that will persist when Google again looks the other way.
Peace of mind? Yes, one version of it.
Outcome? Sustainable business model. Traffic arrives from diverse sources. Diversity is sustainability.
The less I care about Google and the more I care about users and accessibility and navigation and diverse sources of traffic the more Google likes me? Is that unreal or is that reality?
Google is a Game!You got game? Ka-ching!
Blue pill or red pill? I'm not sure which one I've taken, but don't wake me. I'm happy with this dream I'm having. ;0)
