No, the economy most certainly is NOT booming.
And this has to stop.
Surely, if a site is informational, as mine is, it's possible to rank higher than almost any ecommerce doorway page?
I'm UK as well as informational and I rank above almost all the ecommerce sites. I don't always rank at the top because there are some very smart, large, trusted and financially backed informational sites which also have an ecommerce element to them.
But it can be done. Many people want to research before they buy and I see them going to independent informational sites first, like mine. From there they often click on the ads to buy.
In depth knowledge of the subject area and an understanding of what the reader wants are key to repeat visitors. And in my experience, repeat visitors = higher in the SERPS.

Last year, I stopped adding any new content (I paid professional freelancers specialized in my business niche, also for professional images). My search engine / Google traffic remained the same, but I saved several thousands of $$$. I advise other webmasters do the same because money spent on quality content = negative ROI.
