What I just don't understand is people say you have to pay for traffic with Google. My Adwords are a total waste and they are lucky to break even. So why use Adwords? My rankings don't improve at all no matter how much you spend. I know for a fact that the company in my niche that is all over page 1 is not paying anything. The content is a lot of words but is not accurate. Many of the products are not even in stock. Prices look cheap but thats because the out of stock prices are not updated. I read these posts and know that some of the posters have been penalized and many have not. If you have not that is great but expect your day to come and you will be in for a huge shock. It is just a matter of time. I personally believe the Google system is hacked. Do you remember that Matt Cutts payday loans site a few years ago? Google has all this AI but yet can't tell churn and burn and PBNs from established sites? Really? Is it Google can't or doesn't want to?
I would think this has to affect Googles revenue.
Total ad sales from all sources rose almost 19 percent over last year to $21.4 billion. (from CNBC March 2017)

We have been adding a ton of content. Resources that aren't found anywhere in our niche. Word count isn't the end all be all, i get that. But about 80% of our content is anywhere from 2000 to 3500 with all photos shot in house. The rest is 1300+. Nothing thin, but not because short is bad. Just because it doesn't answer the question properly.
Don't get offensive, pls, I'm just asking the tough questions because someone has to ask them. Otherwise nobody in this forum will. And if nobody will, nobody will learn, and at today's tough environment for small sites it means people would either die off or go to the dark side (where profits are quicker).
Here's a reason @SnowMan68 's old website recovered, while your other old domains are tanking. He changed a domain less than 1 year ago. Because it was nearly , and mathematically (I am guessing), impossible to drag his old domain out of current Penguin's hell via negative link weights on all the old links.
It wasn't for another two years that we decided to migrate to a new domain.It was the acronym of our brand, much shorter and easier to remember.
They moved the cheese...
think the focus for any e-commerce site is to design it in such a way as to make purchase on mobile as easy and painless as possible. Saving users payment details, such that a user can purchase without needing re-enter their information is one such design idea.
Amazon is definitely eating Google's lunch, and the changing game should alter how ecommerce site owners approach search traffic and the rapidly falling ROI on SEO efforts.
that is not the reason why bing traffic is converting at double rate
