We should band together and keep a tally on how much the new google update has cost our businesses... a daily tally... then send it to our congress people. Additionally we should also keep a tally of how many employees and contractors we have/had to terminate as it relates to this craziness.
Then add up all the money the page(s) in the top 10 now made and I'll bet it balances out ... Once again, Google did not eliminate the top 10 results ... They eliminated your page(s) from them ... Your rankings aren't an entitlement because you've been there or done something ... If they were, then the sites that were there 1st would have never moved for you to be there in the 1st place ... You took someone's spot away ... Someone took yours ... It's up to you to get it back, not an obligation for Google to give it to you.
"There is a theory floating around that the cause of this massacre is too many pages with not enough link juice to support each page."
It's apparent that the media has its eyes on this update and on this webmasterworld thread for gauging its impact. Shouldn't we try to give more specific examples of "update gone bad" and/or "update gone good" if we can do it in a way that doesn't violate this forums TOS? This could give journalists real examples of which they can maybe help us and google fine tune this thing..
