[edit reason] per author's request, added question to the community [/edit]
3) Be blunt. Be concise. Be impersonal.
you cannot rely wholly on Google for traffic (organic or otherwise)
(3) hitchhiker: Do we need, as a community, to establish better dialogue with Google? If so, a proper way to do that. To keep the signal to noise ratio down. Real Googlers participating, hundreds (not 2). I believe some inside the web-spam team might agree, please speak up.

Google today does remind me of that as well. But they are like this place that sells me software. You call this place and they say "your call is VERY important to us, please hold" I was on hold 6 hours (seriously). The real funny part is they call every month wanting me to renew.
Google is the same they have somebody from Adwords calling me at least every month.

@ColourOfSpring - A lot of us feel your pain, but please stop the Google bashing (as mentioned above) - it's pointless, venting won't help anyone :(
how can anyone say that's not a healthy, robust business plan?I've personally not heard anyone say that. It is a GREAT IDEA! If you can monetize outside of any SE's sphere of influence - more power to you!
the opportunities are plenty - won't you join me?

I may be mistaken but didn't the changes they made during the Panda or Penguin decrease revenue?
if you go back and look at Googles quarterly statements, they actually mention that Panda decreased our revenue
Google reported revenues of $8.58 billion in the first quarter of 2011, representing a 27% increase over first quarter 2010
Paid Clicks Aggregate paid clicks, which include clicks related to ads served on Google sites and the sites of our AdSense partners, increased approximately 18% over the first quarter of 2010 and increased approximately 4% over the fourth quarter of 2010
