Thinking of the internet as a spider web, it took years to establish the delicate connections that were feeding traffic our way. These algo updates are like a little kid with a butterfly net wiping out the entire web structure. That might explain why we are still listed highly, yet nobody is coming to the site anymore through those connections. We are, literally hanging by a thread.
The question now is how to repair the damage. I used to think people found our site spontaneously, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Fixing these broken threads may be the only way back to success and it may take time.
BTW - can't someone slip a black widow down that little kid's shorts?
