Decimation of traffic, how to rectify?


Since September, traffic for all my hubs have drastically gone down and still not revived its original status. Do you know the reason and how do I come out of it?

    It has cycled back each time for me. Sometimes it takes a bit longer than other times.

    Very good advice. If you want your hubs to be successful, you have to go out and promote them. Not everyone has time to do that though, but it certainly helps drive traffic to hubs.

    It does appear that HubPages overall traffic dropped when the idle hubs policy was implemented.

    I think that it will be going up again. The traffic here comes and goes in waves. Many people talk about refreshing hubs, but I suspect that is just due to time. I don't have time to re-edit and re-fresh and my hubs tend to spike after a slump.

    Thanks so much for all the suggestions and propable reasons for such downtraffic. I will keep patience and do some refreshing, though good thing is that all my hubs are featured!

    Hey, if you know SEO, you're aware of the Panda 20 update that clobbered Hubpages traffic across the board on September 27... Right? ;)

    Seriously, while SEO can help a little, there's only so much we can do until Panda stops downrating HP sitewide.
