@jester - yes, of course we are getting a trickle from bing & yahoo, but not enough to even consider keeping the doors open. I am seeing exactly what you describe with the keyphrase decay, but in my case it's more like rotting, festering, gangrenous keyword trench foot. Last year for a single month the site would rank for 15k keyphrases, now it's more like 3k and dropping each week. Google continues to nit pick anything to exterminate our kind and resistance is futile.
I now feel like trying to work with Google is like trying to work with a business with Alzheimer's. They seem to forget that we've done business together for 13 years. All those computers and zero memory.
