Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Fortunately I've been able to regain some traffic since Panda. Unfortunately this has allowed me to continued to be nearly 100% reliant on Google for my business. It would be irresponsible for me to not make hay while the sun is shining. I just hope I can put enough of the harvest away so that I can move on to a new business model.
When Amit Singhal posted the 23 questions to ask yourself if your site has been Pandalized back in May, I put up a website to allow website owners review other websites on these 23 questions, in exchange for having their own site reviewed.
Perhaps not surprisingly, most site owners were shocked how poorly their website did in regards to these questions. I know I was shocked myself.
Again, not to be rude, but I'd guess that you would be shocked how your site would be rated by others using these criteria, too, HuskyPup.
So the only way for me to not rely on G is to actively turn away all G traffic (and sales). Because if I allow G sales, I must size my business accordingly.
I am not sure I understand this...

The thing that bugs me the most. In the real world, If I slack off or screw my customers my business suffers but it suffers slowly
