There's more than one way to use Google for traffic - and more than one keyword is a big part of it.
After MayDay? You bet it is.
MayDay hammered me. I saw a 30 and even 40% loss of traffic on some of my better trafficked sites. In a highly competitive market, I'd gone after the choice one and two keyword phrases and for years I'd been moderately successful at it. All of this to the exclusion of the long tail. If your sites were highly focused on individual keywords and keyword pairs, MayDay put you in your place. I just wish I'd seen it coming....
Adapt. I've been working night and day for weeks now to get back in the loop and am only now starting to see some tentative results.
