My previous share predicting the tide is turning against Google was premonitient. Google has penalized my site and set it immediately to PR0 because a clueless link snitch claimed a high quality guest post I published for free means I am part of some network.

Influencers are starting to remove their sites from Webmaster Tools. replace Google Analytics, and find alternatives to all things Google. If Google refuses to show us quality sites we need to find a search engine that will.
AS LONG AS YOU REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE DAMAGE GOOGLE DOES you are misleading small businesses and contributing to their refusal to focus on CONVERSIONS and reaching potential customers in all other ways.
