So if Google provides 95% of my traffic what is the alternative?
Option 1. live with the fact that at any second you could be living on 5% of your current traffic and you have no control over it whatsoever.
option 2. start getting business from other sources. amazingly (and I googled this for confirmation) there were people in business before google ever existed. in fact here in the U.S., the Ford Motor Company was selling cars nationally before google, television, or national radio stations ever existed.
google just put an ad on their homepage for their own product, a cell phone. the mere fact that google has "products" is scary enough. if I was in the cell phone niche and i depended on organic traffic from google i would be scared poopless right now. the writing is on the wall, the bubble is on the verge of bursting.
