    I feel ya man. Lost a $200/day site too that would've been months away from selling. It's too ridiculous now that it's made website flipping unsafe.

    So are we all hostages of Google? Isn't possible to build a business without it? Receiving traffic from the other Search Engines? By Link Spamming to the death multiple websites/keywords?

    I'm the same thing here. A shitty site with 100k GSA links is now ranking number 1. Certainly a pattern here.

    Penguin updates destroy everything every time they are released. Last year I had to go on benefits for a while to avoid losing my house because my websites were tanked, all of them. It destroys everything, every time. You wil always lose everything when Penguin is released. The website above me which survived both Penguin updates is a pure spam EMD written in broken English with 10 articles with the exact match keyword in them all ranked with sitewide footer links and forum spam.

    Now Penguin updates will be released more frequently, so we will have to work in 3 month bursts as each site will 100% tank.

    Even since May I paid THOUSANDS of dollars for SEO by the biggest names on the forum but not a single site has shifted in rank. Even high PA guest posts didn't shift anything not even 1 position. I bet Google has all of my stuff linked together ensuring that nothing I ever make can rank ever again... I wonder... Wonder what I should do about Adsense in such a case as that's part of my account.

    Im not sure how much longer google can keep penalising sites in this way, because with so many peoples income being lost overnight, so many businesses going into liquidation due to being unable to pay taxes etc, the taxman is sure to lose out as a result of these changes, with all the lawsuits against google at the moment there is bound to be some regulatory changes at some point. Why can't google just ignore links that it doesn't like? there is no real plausible reason why these extreme penalties should happen, I mean, demotion to page 3 until tactics are clean up, fair enough, but this is extreme.

    Not really because as one site moves down, one takes its place, takes its money.

    2 issues


    1/ What happens when that next business gets demoted by the next google update? taxes are charged at a higher rate proportionate to income, so if seo projects are short term wins, the taxman loses out that way also

    AND

    2/ Google is not replacing like for like sites (commercial) it is actually flooding the serps full of news articles & not for profit type sites, If you look at the finance serps it is absolutely rife with Wikipedia and newspaper articles along with government organisations etc...

    What's your effort to income ratio like? What's your $10 a day method?
