wow! - we spend so much time pandering to the Google God, it's a wonder that we have any time at all left to work on creating real quality content.
True that. It seems so, but then again, after 10 years of profiting from search engine referrals, not surprising.
But I see it as the opposite. I've killed off various sites over the last 18 months, simply because I'm NOT going to continue to try to read Google's collective mind. I also believe it's an impossible task to figure all this out, because I believe not even google understands how any one site will fair until it goes through the meat grinding algo.
Sometimes it's time to NOT struggle with impossible tasks, and since some sites don't have a great track record of success, there's not any point in trying to figure it out.
