I'm Done With SEO Coverage - I Had Enough Of You

i am dead inside

I am just done with it all. I am sick of it. I spent 12.5 years of my life writing about the changes happening in the search industry, ranking changes, Google updates, etc. I get up every morning around 5am, I am constantly searching for tidbits and changes in Google, I am basically killing myself over it.

The best part, when I write something about 25% of you, blast me for it. I write about a possible Google update, I get 50 comments about how I am evil. I then get several email threats, threatening to kill me with weird objects, that they want me to die a painfully slow death or worse.

Why do I do it? I give more money to charity than I bring in with this blog.

That is it, I am done.

I wonder how many of you will care? Who will pick up what I've been doing for 12+ years and find these small little nuggets of changes that may impact your clients or your own web sites. Who will repeatedly badger Google about when Penguin or Panda or other algorithms will run? Who will not stop until I get answers about how a new algorithm may impact this site or the other?

Whatever - I got several successful businesses, a happy and healthy family. I do not need this.

You guys really did shoot and kill the messenger. I hope you are happy.
