Looks like many people cannot be objective about their own site. If I had a site like that (never built one) and it got whacked, I think I'd just say "looks like my free handout days are over." I mean, Google never said they were going to offer a money machine to all takers - even if that is how many people thought of their project.
First things first - if you want a successful web business, then it needs to be an actual business and not just a bunch of HTML and CSS. To quote Bobbie Zimmerman, "You've got to serve somebody."
