    Agree. Moving to paid traffic, e-mail marketing and so on will remain very soon the only solution for someone who is searching for stability.

    i disagree with that statement, you can have stable rankings if you do the right kind of seo.

    I've seen some pretty good sites which did the "right type of SEO" get hit before.

    That's the reason why my bet is that Google will decrease in 2-3 years to no more than 50% from the total amount of searches.
    Especially if Amazon will create their own search engine which will be based on an agressive anti-Google campaign ( see the law suit Bezos already started).

    Don't think it will be that easy. I believe Google will still remains strong at least in the upcoming 2-3 years. General public/Normal users still love Google very much. I believe even you yourself use Google most of the time.

    I can only believe in 2-3 years time, many small to medium webmasters who rely heavily on Google traffic might be affected and pushed out of the game. At the same time, Google will still remain at the top with higher profits and revenue from the Google advertisements.

    Stable top ranks don't always result in traffic/profit. Some keyword queries are bloated with paid ads. All organic listings are beneath the fold on the most profitable buyer keywords in some of my niches. Even ranking number 2 brings squat for traffic when half the page is paid ads. No amount of SEO will outrank those paid ads. The only way to compete is to pull out a credit card and hand Google some money for Adwords. This problem is like cancer as it has and will most likely spread to other niches and keywords in the near future.

    Hi,

    I agree, I am using Google, but don't ignore the influence of websites like BBC or Amazon. If these very popular projects will start a powerful campaign against Google, people from US for ex. are very sensible to scandals. Google already started to lose popularity In my opinion.

    I have a project which was banned for no reason ( unique content, no backlinking, doing fine 6 months and dissapeared suddenly). The project used to make around 2-2.5k/month, after I lost all positions and traffic from Google, I focused on Yahoo& Bing and the project is making now alone, just from those 2, 1.5k. So it's possible :)
