Google teaches you discipline.
Post A Prayer recently had some site issues that hurt its SEO. We are working to climb back up the SEO ladder after 4 weeks of bad luck. First are robots.txt file was blocking all google bots from going to the site. Next the SSL certificate was broken for about a week and we couldn't get visitors praying as a result.
We were at the SEO highlight of the sites prime when it came crashing down. We knew what it takes to reach the top and learned by discipline that Google will not allow your site to have errors on it long.
