It is really irresponsible for Google to make this gigantic change during this economy, I am so sorry that you need to let some people go...
I'm sorry you both irresponsibly built the livelihoods of yourselves and others on something totally out of your control (Google's rankings), and some of my sites happen to be moving up, which is exactly what the economy over here needed.
I feel bad for your employees, but not for the people who should know better than to depend on an independent 3rd party's hand out for a living ... YOU! ... You're not entitled to your rankings because of the stinking economy!
I also think it's pretty conceited of you to think you're more entitled to your spot than the rest of us here or anyone else who works their asses off and are moving up from where we were.
And, yes, believe it or not most of those 'big players' do work their asses off to rank ... They have to because it's a constant battle to stay at the top and be ahead of the game.
SERIOUSLY! Anyone who thinks you're entitled to your rankings GET OVER YOURSELF. You're not any more entitled than the rest of us. That's the game we play and if you got in a spot because of irresponsibly depending on an independent 3rd party to keep giving you a freebie then that's your own stinking fault.
Don't blame Google for YOUR poor decision making!
Suck it up, take the responsibility for making a bad decision like an adult, then figure out what to do to try and correct your error, whether it be online or off.
