Hub Pages is faltering?


I keep seeing things on forums about Hubpages "tanking" or going down hill or traffic slowing or whatever. Is this just a lull on the internet since it's a busier time, or is Hubpages becoming a lesser place to be a part of?

    This does away with the concept that was pushed by HP about passive income. Not having to continually update your content to keep it fresh. I have articles up on my own sites that are years old that have never been updated and rank well on Google.

    How is it anything like Facebook or twitter? The format improvements aren't just to please Google...the they're to please visitors, and they're great IMHO.

    Surely it's like anything really, just the roll with the trends. That doesn't mean things won't come back around, certainly

    It's not a case of blaming HubPages, but if you look at the quantcast data, traffic has really dropped the last Google update. The platform you publish on is important, this isn't just down to individual writers. Hopefully things will improve soon

    It frustrating are the earnings it seems to take forever to get anywhere even if you hub has a lot of viewings. Perhaps this is up to Google as well.
