I don't see how anyone can run a business over time by trying to "guess" what's supposed to be done.
I dont know how anyone can run a business and depending on Google alone, i made 5 years ago my aim to get rid of Google eventually. I looked how much do i earn without organic search, and based my whole business operation around that figure, everythign that was above that figure was invested in getting even more independet from Google. (Offline advertising, building of community, getting real life events etc..) I am still away from being totally Google free but i am half way down the road, and G sponsored (thanks to free traffic) my independence, hows that? The question is what are you guys all doing with the traffic you getting? Is your site interesting enough for the visitor to come back without using Google, refer it, make it sticky?
in any case good luck with your business... :)
