---- The folly of depending on free traffic from Google

Free traffic is like free money.
Yeah, it's a Bonus, a Gift ... Sometimes I read the posts here about people saying their 'handout' went away and wonder if what they based their livelihood on (their site) really has what it takes to be a business ... My guess is, unfortunately, most people aren't even 'break even' without a handout ... (That's not a business, it's a charity) ... Sometimes people here almost sound less reasonable than the pan-handlers on the corner, because the pan-handlers don't usually get p*ssed when you don't have some change to give them, they generally understand what a gift is.
I'm sure I'm sounding harsh, but this advice has been posted here Tons over the years and if people haven't followed it yet, now is really the time to start, because for most people and most sites, the freebies are going to seriously diminish, if not end, moving forward...
