Yeah. I run a small but popular site.
But not as many visits as before. Six months ago, I was getting a million views per month. Now I get less than half of that.
I am always adding pages, some pretty significant ones recently. I do NO "link building", yet I am acquiring new links at the rate of about 1,000 per week. Yet my traffic from Google continues straight down.
Who is getting my traffic? You got it. BIG NAMES. So, I concur with your conclusion about lack of diversity, 100%.
I hope this trend does not continue. If it does, I may just walk away, since I am about to get a new source of income. I don't mind working my butt off, but for diminishing returns, there is a limit.
