I understand your optimism on the introduction of new ranking factors. That held a lot weight in the past. The worst I remember was maybe 6 months for the overall results to improve. At least I felt like , "Hey, it was worth it because search is better!"
Ever since Panda 1.0 the results just keep getting worse on Google. Back in the "Yahoo is king days" we were all looking for a good search tool then we had Google.
Now I feel like I'm back in 1996.
I mean let's be real, Google got a new CEO, 7-8 weeks later the organic results get screwed up and their profits went through the roof.
The results are leveraged for Google's monetary gain, not the users.
