Everyone keeps saying there are lots of alternative ways to promote a web site, but this is moot. You should be doing this anyway. The fact is for most of us if we work on every possible way to generate traffic, then Google is going to provide us the most, reliable and probably relatively less effort and cost than the alternatives. In fact alternative is not even the right word, it's additional. Anyway, I am not about to give up getting Google visitors.
Like others I am investing $$$$$s in developing new and better content. I am losing income from ads that I have taken down. But I feel I don't have a choice until I can past Panda, and I am likely to keep trying for sometime.
