Okay I've had a couple days to stew over this. I'm close to hitting panic mode. The only couple sites that mattered to me are essentially MIA with this update. My income is MIA also. I'm sure I'm not alone.
The freak out part of me thinks nothing is going to improve. My dumb luck. I haven't seen any movement on anything.
So my question is, if you've been "bombed", where are you at on all this? I'm not going to change a thing. No way. I've been segregated because of the color of my skin on this one. I truly feel this way.
How long are you guys going to wait this out? Are you launching a new site? Are you going to 301 this if things don't pan out or change? Do you feel as pessimistic about this as I do?
One thing is clear to me. Time invested in websites is a real sketchy investment of time. Organic traffic suckers. After experiencing this, I'm not sure how I can move forward.
I've had a wide range of horrible experience over the years. With that said, I've made the most money ever this summer of 2012 and peaked with Adsense in December 2011. The fall from those accomplishments has been so severe, I'm really struggling to deal with this. This is absolutely the WORST ever that I've felt from any Google update or penalty. Ever. Nothing compares to being smashed in the teeth like this one. I'll leave it at that. My point is made.
What's the plan now? I need some other thoughts on this right now.
