Content_Ed you seem like that other poster Disgruntl_Ed today.

Remember Google is only one a search engine and there are other place to get traffic, so my advice is to try give them the proverbial finger and find some of them, because they're out there if you look and it's just going to keep getting tougher and tougher to rank from here on out ... I really think the part about it getting tougher is the point VanessaFox was trying to make, and it may not have been the right style for you (I understand your point) but there are quite a few people who need a wake-up call, because they depend too much on an algo that's not in their control to pay their bills.
I hope your site comes back, but, I hope either you find some other traffic too, because this is a tough unpredictable game we play and they probably aren't ever going to tell us the rules, except generally and from there it turns in to a 'choose your own adventure' game.
