I think you have the smartest strategy definitely. Ultimately organic search traffic is likely viewed as "those bottom feeders". It's kind of like that feeling in a kitchen in a four star hotel. It's not likely when you're the dishwasher that people care about your issues or complaints or overall well being. Make sense? Think about it.
This issue wouldn't be such an issue if 75% or more of website traffic depended on one entity. Fact is it's a slippery slope. It's like me, the webmaster being like the independent film maker. People are going to know about my movie how? Competing with Universal films is realistic? That's what I'm seeing in search right now. CNET, Engadget, the official sites, etc. That is what scares me now. If the everyday webmaster doesn't have those resources like CNET, then how can we stay fresh daily? Have huge number of unique pages? That's this issue for me here today right now. Tell me I'm wrong I'm listening. I'm crying in my beer sure.
When Google is 75% of the internet or more, then how could one get rid of Google as their primary source of traffic? It's that independent movie that is 1 out of 1000 that catches fire and might get some headlines? Like that small site out there that happens to get some +1's or mention on Facebook? Everyone else? Exactly. Enjoy washing those dishes.
