We are constantly being bombarded with "proper" ways to do SEO and get noticed by Google. At the end of the day it's the sales that count. I have had good sales from "poor" webpages and no sales from "good" pages. Sometimes I have poured much effort in to content and linking efforts with no results whatsoever. Other times it has worked very well. Often I get surprised by success from out of the blue.
It seems as if Google has somewhat lost the plot lately. Certainly I am finding results for my own searches very disappointing and unhelpful. The Big G seems to be more concerned with putting sponsored results in front of me than in answering my query. Sometimes these sponsors take up all of Page 1, leaving me to go to the next page before even starting to see some real answers.
Throughout all this, however, I try to keep focused. Some people might call it "plodding"! And it works. The sales keep coming (not, of course, fast enough), and I take all the stats with a pinch of salt. So, please don't feel too hard done by and, most importantly, don't give up your hard work.
P.S. If you can produce content as good as your "rant" above, you must be able to do well in this business!
