I just managed a 2013 average day's earnings however Page Views were still way down at 65% and in comparison to two years ago that means 30% of the PVs we used to have.
With all the Google-inspired scraped crap out there, as a company, we have now taken the decision to return to much more reliable marketing strategies of trade fairs.
This is quite strange since I remember extremely clearly 20 years ago at a trade fair in Germany me informing everyone of the future and showing my first attempts at a website! Fortunately it was on my hard drive, a 14.4 modem wouldn't have got me very far in those days!
Where am I now? In China at a very large trade fair, end of April the USA, beginning May UK, end of May Germany. This reads just like my diary of 20 years ago except for China:-)
Unlike Google we have real-world employees making real-world products for a real-world market, we can't afford to wait for Google to get its house and algorithm sorted-out because it is very unlikely they ever will.
Far from organising the world's information Google's decided to cherry-pick the better-known subjects for its knowledge engine and leave the remainder like flotsam and jetsam to game the system as best they can...they've given up, it's plainly obvious.
