For every site that has moved down there is a site that has moved up. The people who moved down always make the most noise those who move up want to remain off the radar screen.
I'm in agreement with the ... moved on ... strategy; But I would put it differently; "don't chase the dog's tail" Instead of following the current algos and limit the creation of content to the algo of the day. Build meaty content and let google do the hard work. Use proper semantics and structure to allow google to discern page content and importance.
That being said - looking at the forest - when I do research on google I am left with a question ... where is the beef? Seems many scientific long tail searches are not working so well at this moment; To much local content, to little results for materials that reference the agreed on set of facts, to much hypocrisy over thin content or aggregate content - and a Google ego that their robot is better than humans at sorting content hence don't show human sorted content. ... not whining I know how to use bing.com; just a PC uncorrect observation.
