Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
We didn't see the kind of ratings we had before the penalty until Google's Caffeine update, this June. That was our final pardon. Now we're back at the top.
Without the Google penalty, we wouldn't be anywhere near as far along as we are. You have two choices: You can roll over and die, or you can grow beyond it.
That holiday season, we pay-per-clicked out the wang. We spent a lot of money. They penalize you organically, but they still let you buy ads.
the free search traffic is back and the business may need to scale up to meet that market demand.Actually, I don't think their traffic is back. There is an uptick on neither Compete.com nor Alexa.com traffic graphs. In fact both graphs point south for much of 2010. I don't know about you, tedster, but I read the article on Inc.com as a promotional piece brought about by their re-vitalized marketing efforts. Amazing what a lack of Google traffic would do to you (for you?).
It screams... "Internet Police" to me...Crowd Control 101
