May 2014 will be the worst month of all time
Nah. The data is in.
Just the worst month since August 2008, after my May 1, 2014 demotion/ downgrading/ penalty/ execution/ whatever.
I wonder if I will ever be able to recover from my $20K/month peak in January 2013, to $3K/month in May 2014. Especially, since I STILL don't know what happened.
I have made MANY changes (disavowed a few nasty links, removed my 10% lowest performing pages, improved navigation, changed color scheme, gone more "social", slapped my ugly kisser on all my top pages with a link to my bio, gone all 300x250 from 250 square, enabled text plus image everywhere), yet I remain in the doldrums. The "switch" has not been flipped back! Yet. We shall see.
Weeding through the mess and finding what's pertinent to you is the tricky part.
Amen to that, brother! Trying to prevail in a situation where the sauce is secret. It ain't easy, when unknown forces/algos are working against you.
How did I screw up? Go fish. I simply do not get to know.
Is this crap shoot still worth 10 hours/day, 6 days a week? If things don't change soon, the answer will be no.
