@Sgt_Kickaxe: ripples - agreed, good point.
@tedster: ripples of ripples - yeah and the understanding of it is good SEO, I guess.
I already started to work hard on the internal link structure to make it (more) flat, released 2 press releases (in German and English) to get more link love, etc.
In a situation (and I have been there Florida & BD) like this, it is hard to focus on the long run and ignore such sudden changes in traffic and ultimately money flow. I also agree that it is not a nice business to rely on G for traffic, but hey: most of the sites do.
Now back to work: more content, more links, better weighting, improved internal structure... don't we just love the game ;-)
