your proposed "Breaking My Addiction to Google" thread could fit here:
I'm going to try to not bog down this thread with this topic but to me, this is a problem where all roads lead to Google. Yes, it's a general business topic too but this board identifies the Google category as "So Big - It deserves its own category" for a reason. It's so big that the topic of "Gaining Some Degree of Autonomy from Google" should be a no-brainer companion subject. There needs to be some counterbalance to counteract the trap that so many webmasters have fallen into and the responsible thing for WebmasterWorld to do would be to provide a dedicated place for people trying to find some balance in their business where it pertains to the Google stranglehold on this industry.
Thanks netmeg. I'll take whatever mojo I can get these days including miracles. Having said that, I just can't help myself from dreaming impossible dreams.
