Good luck everybody.
My sentiments exactly. After spending the last week researching what exactly is going on at google I've realised too that government intervention is the only answer. Realistically this will take time, there are already some elements moving 'slowly' through the courts, and more in the making (anti-trust, etc) but it's going to take time.
The index is broken (I don't need to read all the reams of complaints on this site to know this, I can tell from my own sites, the new hastily compiled drivel ranks well, the long established, quality sites are out).
I love the analogy for the UK of the yellow pages, how could you operate a business if your business was listed one week, not listed for 4 months, then listed again under the wrong section? And that was the norm for 80% of the listings?
Under these circumstances, I can't employ staff, I can't forward plan, there is only one solution when google holds 80 - 90% of the UK search market...
I'm going BH.
This makes me very sad, but it's the Wild West out there and at the end of the day I'm working to support my family, they come first. I need to mine this current pot of gold while it lasts, and hope some day soon I can go back to my 'regular' business.
