If G went bust at midnight tonight..and adwords and thus adsense stopped..and organic free G search traffic stopped..
Some of us would stay afloat ( but maybe lose some income and or traffic, for a while ) ..most here would fold..probably "indebtedly"..because IMO ..if you still think that TMS, netmeg and convergence and some others of us who have been saying "diverge your traffic / revenue sources" are wrong..
Then it is probably too late for you..
Because G will "take all the pie" they can ( meaning most peoples traffic or revenue sources will shrink even more drastically than they maybe have )..one day..maybe sooner rather than later..
Like TMS..I think it will be sooner..
The average G searcher does not give a rodents rear about us..just so long as they can get what they searched for ( mainly pron, bootleg movies and music, warez, pretty pictures etc ) ..they don't much care who the mega scrapers like G or ehow or the little scrapers ( like some members here at WebmasterWorld have admitted to being ) got the "content" from..G knows this..
G knows what people search for at work , at home, and in the middle of the night all alone..and how they search ..Webmasters using Ganalytics ( "webmaster crack" ) helps G to take away your bread, eventually..
Doesn't mean I approve of all that they do, I certainly don't..But searchers don't care what we think..and neither does Google..or Bing for that matter..
