The worst thing about the algorithm change for my site,, 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.
