We are in a unique situation however I believe that this situation will become more mainstream in the very near future. You see, we are in competition with google. Last year google invested in a direct competitor of ours. After that we were in the position of getting the majority of our traffic/customers from our competition. Not a good spot to be in. In a way (a few ways actually) I think we are lucky, this has made us stronger, we were too dependent on google and they showed us what a mistake that was.
Now, a year later, we are stronger, strong enough that google can not kill us, hurt yes, kill no. Next year we hurt them.
