n0tseo reading between the lines here what "we" really miss is how ranking a site.
Honestly, I miss web search as it was back in 2007-2008.
What is happening is (you already know this) is ranking for terms within the nitch your in the cost or time spent doing the work has and will continue to increase. Gone are the days when you could work 50 sites. I told my son a couple of years ago pick 5 (he built 100+ EMD's in his nitch) with and work them hard. Let the others do what they will do but put all your energy in 5. For him and his company it has paid off very well, look down the road anticipate or think if Google were my website what would I do.
IMO Google results are good I don't really have an issue finding a search, I do see the repeated stronger domains are an issue in a search and I believe this will be dealt with. Makes no sense for one website to control 3-5 results in a search to Google, not me Google, because back in 2207-2008 the same dominate websites were in the top spots. This was because we knew what would promote a website.
Ballgame has changed. I myself find this exciting. Move on your cheese is in another room.
