This current situation is hurting Goog, too. How much has your adsense revenue dropped? Timews that drop by thousands if not millions, and that is what Google is loosing in adwords revenue... we don't make money, they don't make money (in much larger quantities).
>>> very true
>> You make them money Google returns a bit love your way.
Revenue dropped to almost 0 so am assuming it is the same in a millions of smaller/bigger sites.
In my opinion they did either clean house on their Db's or rewrote everything and re-indexing everything now. Time will tell.
Or PLan B
How about if google decides to direct traffic from them only to adwords advertisers and only sites they own (youtube...) and do a big dump on rest of us that rely on search traffic:(
