Awful weekend here too Martin, in fact awful for a Monday thus far too. I really can't live like this. Right now I feel physically sick with worry.
Take it easy mate, i feel your pain. We often go for days now with no sales (and we have a number of ecom websites on a range of topics as well as web stores over popular third party platforms). Adwords is no great help either, it is fast becoming extremely expensive, rigged and the conversions simply suck. Sales are way too far and in-between this year.... and getting worse.
Google are messing way too much with the secret sauce. It is virtually killing the web as we know it and will eventually turn back and bite them .... but until such time i think it is safe to assume that any business model relying on Google paid or free traffic is doomed to fail... i think webmasters need to start adjusting to the fact that Google is no longer a friend and try and build a business model that has no Google factor built into it... hard but very much possible.
