I am glad I didn't quit my day job 5 years ago when times were good, lots of traffic from Google and the other SE's but from back then it just has gone downhill. We can blame Google all we want but they are not going to change anything for a couple of reasons. One reason is that they can't go back. Too much invested into what they have now and what they think is really good. It meets everything that they wanted and probably more than that. We think that they really care about us web masters that serve them with free stuff that they make billions off of, but they couldn't care less. Just wait until they have all coupons in the world on their site, then they don't need us at all so then what do we do?
There has been lots of small tips here and there to where they are going but it has been all to subtle to figure out and then BAM! Panda strikes, and who knows what a Panda does? Probably nothing but eat and poop so they eat us alive and poop us out.
Then, for every "looser" in this game there is always a winner, right? There are lots of sites that probably wonder WTH? Why am I getting all this traffic suddenly? They probably think that they are the worlds best SEO's now and sell their services worldwide, using AdWords :)
