the person said they were dependent upon being #1 on page 1 and would have to go out of business if they were in slot 7 or 8 on page one,
What applies to them, may well not apply to you, nor I , nor others..
I knew for me it would be an impossible task if only for the reason that my "problem" site is too broad with too many topics to always hit page one for a given key word.
Realistically , you may well not have always been at number 1 for all your desired keywords, and until recently it did you no harm, ( I'm presuming the site you mention is the big one that I know of from your profile ? )..Sit it out..
Given that G is playing "random shuffle SERPS" to smoke out "the evil SEOs" that they don't like..if they are moving some of the pieces in the basket, by definition the others that they were not targeting may also move..collateral damage..you may rise back up again like walked on grass which was in their way when they decided to stomp on someone near you or that had your "profile"..
Don't "zig" because G "zagged"...in their eyes ..only the guilty "zag"..and only the real sinners run like a guy trying to avoid sniper fire..waiting till early December is a good idea..:)
