Thanks for sharing your story, actually its a lesson thought by Google to us Not to rely on them. They just cannot see how many webmaster are relying on Google.
IMO webmasters are relying on the web, not Google. The problem though is that Google has become a monopolistic entity, tightly griping and controlling the flow of traffic on the web via their million and one arms and beckons. Webmasters are relying on free competition and a fair go for all. Unfortunately it is no longer the case. The web is well and truly controlled by this monster.
