I think it is absolutely amazing what you're getting away with Matt in the name of do no evil, that you will absolutely not respond to even though it is obvious fact.
Your own blog, if it was any other that wasn't also enshrined in Googly concrete from a load of links to it and being a million years old would barely exist on the Internet.
You have after 12 years at this only a 17.5 percent direct following, a 80 percent bounce rate, 55 second on page read time. 300,000 visitors a month with apparently 240,000 of them saying you are irrelevant to yourself as worth reading.
You are using as your main url what we used to call doorway pages. You don't have anything but your blog, but when you go to the domain, what do you see except a landing page that is a manual doorway asking, oh, you must be looking for my blog. No Matt, they are looking for your shoe size.
Your only justification at all in this is you are not commercial or running ads, so you can sit back and judge others that are.
You seem like a nice guy on the surface but what you really are when it comes to the Internet is the hatchet man that is smiling the whole time he wreaks his havoc on others lives.
I wasn't trolling you or kidding you, although I thought it was pretty funny myself when I tweeted you the stats on your own blog and said, first thing to do if Matt Cutts wants to clean up the Internet, is quit allowing a crap ton of searching to come to him when the vast majority of users are saying, you provide no decent content and a reason to come back on their own.
