    Build quality website, engage the users, use videos, use social media, and build quality backlinks.

    Dont use shortcuts or it's just going to happen again.

    Build a freakin' list, get buyers, and make passive income.
    Drive paid traffic to the page.
    Optimize your copy.
    I don't understand why so many people are freaking out about Google, they're going to do whatever they damn well please. Risking your income by organic results is not something I would do.
    In this day and age, you NEED more than one income stream.
    So, have you built it? Did you build your fail-safe?

    google seams to deliver worst and worst results because of this latest updates (EMD, penguine ,etc) they destroy too many websites with those updates so they are not able to offer good results anymore , I started to use bing for over 50% of my searches , I was lucky that I had no EMD websites.

    Listen guys, bottom line is this; if you have a quality website offering true value then you'll be fine no matter what they do, if you have a tacky one page site with tons of affiliate junk then you're doomed to be at the back of the serps - if anywhere at all!

    Think of it like this; if YOU visited YOUR site looking for help or information, would YOU stay there and browse the hundreds of affiliate links or poorly formatted spun articles? I think we both know the answer.

    Don't create backlinks to your site. Add as much content as possible.

    Yes content is most important now.. build quality content first then build some quality backlinks

    i suggest you wait 1-2 weeks if nothing happen then remove some low quality content from you'website and add some new quality content

    FUCK google man.. just move to other traffic source.. Google is going to fall soon coz of their all scarp n stupid rules bugging all webmasters. All are now going to alternate source as Google is no longer reliable for all your time you spend on SEO on google. They come up with PANDA - PENGUINE - PENNIS - PUSSY update n will fuck all even sometime you follow white hat. SO its high time to move to other traffic source.

    GOOGLE is not the dead end for traffic. Explore you will get to know. That will take you long way not the fucking GOOGLE.

    If you chose to rely on Google as a source of traffic then Google didn't ruin your business - you did.

    Solely relying on search traffic and specifically Google with the knowledge of how volatile the rankings and updates are is a poor business decision on your part.

    It was obvious Google were going to target exact match domains from the moment Matt Cutts said the next penguin would turn the SEO industry upside down. Even before that it was clear that at some point they will fall victim to the spam team.

    Having this happen to you though is actually a positive experience. It may not seem like it now but you have learnt one of the most valuable lessons you can as a business owner which will allow you to come back stronger than you were previously.

    This is a good post. Google has smacked me once... back when Yahoo switched to Google. That was in '99 or 2000 I believe? I went from banging 100k hits a day to my adult sites to almost nothing when that switch occured. I learned then, the hard way, never ever again put all my eggs in one basket.

    So today, if I lose a traffic source I'll be ok. But if I lose two or three I'm going to be feeling it...

    Adapt and grow or else do nothing and die. It's simple.

    This is so true. I don't use Google for searching anymore either. It's terrible. If I need to lookup something or research anything I now use Bing.com.

    I think its time we start building other income stream other than relying on Google.

    There is always Bing, Yahoo, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. There is a lot of traffic out there to be had.

    You were probably hit by the Panda update, which rolled out the same day and affected 2.4% of SERPs.
