I hope this information provides inspiration to all
I am among many Hubbers who have suffered in recent times through new algorithms in the search engines. I lost about 75% of my HP traffic - but lost a far higher percentage of traffic elsewhere...
One of my best performing Hubs was number one on Google UK for a long time. I soon noticed it had been relegated to page insignificant... I revamped it and saw it sink further...
These past few days, I have seen traffic increase significantly. I am not back to number one, but I am second only to Jamie Oliver and outrank not only the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) but all three of Britain's biggest supermarkets, as well as the top recognised foodie sites.
I'm not sure whether to leave it alone for now or revamp it again (probably the former, to be honest) but I hope all Hubbers can be inspired by this minor success and the fact that Hubs can rise again!
Obviously not providing info here but happy to provide screen prints (to HP staff only, if they need them!) from Google UK.
Good luck, everyone!
Well done, Gordon! Nice to hear something positive!
Congratulations, Gordon Hamilton! I'm so glad to hear about the comeback!
Hi Gordon. That´s fantastic, but your hubs and the images that go with them are so good you deserve this victory, well done.
PS. I hope your journey in the snow wasn´t too terrible .
Looks like the current Panda(monium) has settled and has been a boon for some. It will still be some time until we see a (positive or negative) outcome and then Panda/Penguin will run again for sure.
Sounds like you benefited from Google Panda Update 25, which supposedly took place around March 15 to 18. Yet, details on this algo update still unclear.
That's good news, I hope they ship the Panda off to a Zoo.

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic...

With the recent google algorithm change, i noticed that hubbers who have spent 4 - 5 years are those having their subdomain slammed by google. Why?
