Google Loss, The Seeven Stages of Recovery

    1. SHOCK & DENIAL-
    It never happened.

    2. PAIN & GUILT-
    How could Google do it? Is it really my fault?

    3. ANGER & BARGAINING-
    Frustration gives way to anger, and you may lash out and lay unwarranted blame on Google.

    You may try to bargain in vain with the powers that be for a way out of your despair ("I will never spam again if you just bring back my traffic")

    4. "DEPRESSION", REFLECTION, LONELINESS-

    During this time, you finally realize the true magnitude of your loss, and it depresses you. You may isolate yourself on purpose, reflect on the traffic and income you lost and focus on memories of past Amazon sales. You may sense feelings of emptiness or despair.

    5. THE UPWARD TURN-
    You brain starts working again

    6. RECONSTRUCTION & WORKING THROUGH-
    You will find yourself seeking realistic solutions to problems posed by life without Google as your easy lay. You will start to work on practical and financial problems and reconstructing yourself

    7. ACCEPTANCE & HOPE-
    During this time- the last of the seven stages of your traffic loss, you learn to accept and deal with the reality of your situation. Acceptance does not necessarily mean instant happiness. Given the pain and turmoil you have experienced, you can never return to the carefree, untroubled YOU that existed before this tragedy. But you will find a way forward.

    Very clever (although, based on what has been showing up in some forum threads, I think I might change Number 2 from "is it really my fault?" to "Let's see...   Who can I put the finger at as far as blame goes?"   hmm)
