Thanks for sharing that dataguy
I sure sleep better at night, now
I don't, unfortunately I spend extra hours after everyone in my family has gone to bed(check my post times) just to keep up with recent events and run a/b testing since Panda rolled out.
Google just announced 40 new changes in February, that will translate into at least 40 hours less sleep for me.
I had given notice to all of my 10 employees that they were about to lose their jobs.
I had 2 full time employees in a mentoring program and 2 part time writers whom I had to let go in order to write the articles myself. Letting go of the 2 full time employees wasn't just a loss for them, I lost faith a little myself. Note that the timing was HORRIBLE too with teaching layoffs and a housing collapse.
At least the Google bottom line improved though, that's what they are all about now. How many billion per month?
I haven't pulled the plug, yet, though we are hurting now.
edit: If you're looking for reason: In a speech by Larry Page last fall he announced that Google is no longer just a search company. Google's own about page had, for the longest time, stated that Google believed in doing just one thing really, really well and that was search. Google has strayed from their core principles and so now must we from our Google love affair. It's killing some of us. - [ca.finance.yahoo.com...]
