acee - there is no anti-trust issue because for every website that sinks, another rises. Essentially what you are demanding is that the govt intervenes to DEMOTE existing websites so that yours can be promoted back up - you'll just get the sites demoted filing a counter-anti-trust suit. You are never going to get any govt to agree to freeze the serps so that existing websites never get dislodged and new websites never get a chance to break in.
My advice would be to stop wasting your time tilting at windmills and start focusing on improving your website and developing other traffic streams. Hope that doesn't sound too harsh - just trying to save you a lot of time. If you read threads from previous months you will find some people spending literally hours and hours frothing about G - time they could have spent more productively on their businesses. Once an hour moves from your future to your past, it's gone forever
Talk of improving your website is nonsense. You were making an income from it before Panda, so why not now. Your customers weren't wrong in using your website were they? So what's changed?
You were only making an income from your website because G deemed it to be OK - and now they have decided they have found something better than you. I know it's hard to believe, but all the other websites in the SERPs were eyeing your rankings and working hard to win that place. It happens in every single business.
The ones who say "improving is a nonsense" - they are like the company Filofax in the 1980's. They had a hit product and didn't improve it - and were blindsided when palm pilots, blackberries and smart phones made their little paper organisers obsolete. I suppose they too could argue that there was no need to improve, people were buying their product, weren't they? Till they stopped.
