My traffic just crashed! Is anyone experiencing the same? Is there anything I can or should do? What's up? Is google trying another apocalyptic algorithm? did HP change something?
Don't despair. There must be a few hundreds of us experiencing the same. Its almost crazy here these days, and its becoming such an effort to keep our chins up.
And its a shame that we mostly dont know what to do about it.
HubPages has just made their featured/noindexed hub choices active. I think it will make a difference for a while, with a dip now, and hopefully a rise later. I've seen a drop off of 1/3, but consider it very temporary.
My account also lost about 1/3 of the normal traffic. Maybe it's really the new feature.
Wait I am confused. What do you mean featured/nonindexed?
My traffic has been pretty bad lately compared to how it used to be....The latest hubs I wrote are not performing well either...
Yeah I thought I was the only one. Just checked my stast and my traffic is crazy low today. This is the lowest I have ever seen my daily HP traffic since the beginning of the year.
Mine has actually improved somewhat. Is it because of the 9 hubs I killed? I have no idea.
From what I can see, no-one on this thread has had a visitation from the Google bots since the new feature was introduced, so traffic changes are something else.
Yes, I agree Izzy. Plus it's a weird time in the USA - Labor Day weekend, which is similar to the August Bank Holiday in the UK, followed by many kids and students starting school again. Very difficult to judge traffic. Though if you've lost more than 50% traffic, it might be a Google/HP problem... difficult to say for sure.
Both Pinterest and Twitter are busy little beavers today.
Something interesting happened two days ago. My pageviews doubled! and it's getting consistent. I wonder what caused that.
Mine spiked on Labor Day weekend and crashed on Wednesday. I lost ALL of my Google traffic. That's a bummer for me because most of my traffic comes from Google. I can find many of my articles at the top of searches but my most popular titles are buried in Google Purgatory somewhere. I'm frustrated and am not sure what to do about it. Gahhh!

My traffic just dropped by about 33% similar to like on weekends. I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this. Some of my hubs that normally give me 100+ views during the week have dropped to way below 100 like...

Well, my hub traffic has hit yet another new yearly low. I've thrown in the towel as far as doing anything about it; the one exception being the writing of new hubs if/when a brilliant idea comes to mind.I'm going to...

This morning I received an email from a Hubpages staff member regarding Google snippets (ie, Google Answer box) with this link. I would just like to say that this is something VERY worthwhile. I have been working on...
