The worst thing about the algorithm change for my site, best-childrens-books.com, is that it keeps getting worse. It seems like any adjustments Google are making only hurt more. As of yesterday, traffic from Google is down 30%. To make matters worse, the pages suffering the biggest hit are my biggest earners.

I now rank behind wikihow AND ehow for HOW TO PUBLISH A CHILDREN'S BOOK. That's not just a big hit to the pocketbook, it's an insult.

I'm a writer. I'm writing the good stuff, not spam by ANY means. My pages are way longer than typical web pages, filled with original content. I have many links from libraries and schools.

This hurts.
