I was talking to a millionaire friend yesterday who has a tech business. I asked him how did you stay in businesses when your competitors went out of business? He replied "Well I always built quality products, but I decided to diversify and bring in machines to make plastic products, I didn't want to have all my eggs in one basket"
I laughed and thought, hmmm, where did I hear that before??? I have always planned to get away from Google as much as possible in 2013, but what are your plans? The way I see it, if Google doesn't want us there, than I don't want to be there. I will still try to get free traffic, but Google will be at the bottom of my list. I want to create products, list building, PPC and continue working with offline clients.
If your plans are to try and focus soley on Google, then I ask you, why?
