I understand the #1 reason is google's changes that thwarts SEO but I'm wondering what I should do different since HP is no longer working for me. So I consolidated 2 hubs into one. The lower score hub at the bottom of the higher score hub, and delete the lower score hub.
But will that work? Probably not, and worry it might bring down the higher score hub to a lower score.
Is there something else I need to do or maybe HP need some changes. What if the new demographic is mobile phone browsing? I don't have browser on my cell phone so I don't know anything about it. tried to visit HP I get 'malformed url' on straightTalk network.
I don't know if it's a phone problem or a HP problem. Something to think about in 2013 is to ride the tide of changing demographics and I'm being left behind marooned.
I'm sorry you're feeling discouraged right now, ptosis! Over the past couple of months, we have been making a lot of changes (both on the surface and behind the scenes of the site) that we anticipate will positively affect traffic to our site on the whole, but it takes a long time for those changes to take effect, and Google throws a lot of noise into the system, which makes it hard for us to see what works and what doesn't work.
So rest assured we're doing everything we can on our end!
On a personal level, the best thing to do is to make your Hubs as thorough, useful, well-researched (both in terms of the content and in terms of what online audiences are searching for and potential competition is serving up), and high quality as possible.
That approach tends to do the best over the long run- and ultimately, this is a long run game. Hope that helps!
Thanks, perhaps I am being like Ed Gruberman from Ti Kwan Leep :\
Ed Gruberman: Yeah, uh, no disrespect or nothin', but, like, uh, how long is this gonna take?
Teacher: Ti Kwan Leep is not a path to a door, but a road leading forever towards the horizon.
Ed Gruberman: So like, what, an hour or so?
Teacher: No, no, we have not even begun upon the path. Ed Gruberman, you must learn patience.
Ed Gruberman: Yeah yeah yeah, patience. How long will that take?
Teacher: Time has no meaning. To a true student, a year is as a day.
Ed Gruberman: A YEAR??? I wanna beat people up right now! I got the pajamas! Hah woo yah ooomm!
Don't forget that many people will not be searching online for much other than gifts in the sales at the moment and before Christmas it was mostly Christmas stuff.. so most of my business stuff although still ranked in the same place by Google is just seeing a hell of a lot less traffic as people have better things to do with their time.. personally I will spend the next few days enjoying myself not surfing the internet!
is a website that is a smartphone simulator since I don't have one. The two column format of text on left & pictures on right seem to fit just perfectly. That's good. I'm going to stick to that format that I've been using.

My Hubscore drops after I edit a Hub. Is anyone else experiencing this situation? There have been times in which the score has gone up to reflect the editing process. I'm not sure if this is normal.

Why do you think the hub with the highest score was scored higher than your others? Interested to know.
