    you guys shouldn't rely so heavily on search engine traffic and then you wouldn't be losing so much when these updates roll out.

    DIVERSIFY/ADAPT.

    Enough with the sob stories.

    OP, I agree that people should diversify but this is an SEO forum, so it is understandable people will be talking about an update when it happens. Proper discussion will help the community, in a few days after the hysteria has died down, we should have some facts.
    Also not everybody has a sob story.

    I have to agree with OP somewhat. The guys that relied solely on search engine traffic should have seen this coming.

    It's the same as using Adsense as your only income stream. You're very likely to get banned eventually, so diversification should be a no brainer here.

    Hello. I think it's a good idea to build your links outside from engine traffics. I've gotten screwed before by google many times so now I build traffic on reddit, tumblr, twitter, etc. In long term it's been working out better! My humble opinion.

    You are partly right - diversify and adapt is important but you are partly closed minded in thinking that one has to get different traffic sources to do that.

    Every bit of the traffic to my money sites is organic... my adaptation is not generating other traffic sources but working to build sites and backlink infrastructures that are not affected by updates.

    If you do it right, this is what you wake up to on a day like today:

    From when the Panda update hit my websites I started to build my IM
    business outside of Google.
    When these new updates hit and wipe out people's earning i'm like

    "I hate to say I told you so"

    But having said that, there are still REAL SEO GURU'S here that are
    Raping Google everyday even with the new updates.. LOL
