They don't seem to get the fact that selling stuff is what pays for everything that's free on t' Web. It's getting a bit like a multi layered protection racket that's gone so far that us mugs can't afford to pay any more.
I guess other mugs might take our place but eventually no one will want to.
Perhaps when all this settles down and they correct all of the cock ups like they did after Florida and the other big changes most of the good guys will rise to the top again.
One thing I've learned over the years is that when there is a big change there are many different ways to react successfully. If you contribute here and get some ideas to help you make a decision on what you are going to do then that's really good. The thing is not to be too afraid of making a decision to either do or not do something. Over the last few weeks I've reorganised the linking structure of my main site with keyword anchor text links in an "Explore" panel above the footer. I'm adding new useful pages as quickly as I can as every one has those anchors in that panel. And I'm getting back links as quick as I can through all sorts of ideas you get when you try hard enough.
What I'm doing may not be the best thing but it is something and I don't see how it can do me any real harm. I've now gone back to #1 for a few of my main high traffic terms. What I don't know is if that would have happened if I'd done nothing.
