Traffic was steady and moving up, 17.5k unique's per month
I dropped around 30% Most others in the same situation report the same amount, however, i think the longer it's going on the bigger that percentage is.
It does seem true that Google are penalising sites for having links pointed at them and i suppose they are taking the view that dont matter who pointed them at your site, your going to get punished, but at what costs, regardless that i paid a SEO to work my site it is a quality site,
All though they have not actually said its a manual penalty they admit its the links pointing to my site
so Go figure, really not happy with the outcome, but what can you do you cant beat God, have to sit it out forever how long it takes me i have no choice
