Can someone please help me here? Increase in traffic and followers.
Last year was averaging almost 2 $ a day. Dramatic decrease in hub earnings from ad program like down to .25 a day!! What is happening ! Not adsense - I only make .50 a year maybe with the clicks from ads. I wish we can place ads ourselves in places. Anyway I am concerned about the hub earnings as I was going to write more hubs but not with writing for a quarter a day
Please please check Into this
Well I'm no expert and alot of people are talking about how their earnings have dropped because of google, but from what I see you have 39 hubs and you haven't wrote for a month! Being consistent is a very important key-element. I see people saying how there earnings have dropped so I always peep at their profile and they haven't writtin a hub in a month.. So they are sitting on what they have. To be honest I keep gaining more traffic everyday! And I am consistent, I write atleast 2-3 hubs a week. So I hope this helps, this is my perspective.
Hi weezyschannel. Most of us are experiencing the same. My earnings are down, too, significantly. I think it has a lot to do with the changes that this site is going through that affect views and traffic. PoeticPhilosophy gives very good advice. I would follow it as I do some of the same. However, there is a certain amount of fluctuations over which we have limited control. Ride the roller coaster with perspective. Hopefully, our earnings will return.
I can certainly understand the frustration as my earnings have dropped as well but I attributed mine to the fact that I just haven't written a hub in months. It is easy to get into the cycle of why write a hub for pennies but looking at it another way, sometimes hubs will surprise the writer and bring in hundreds of hits inspiring more hubs etc. With that in mind I will try and motivate my creative spirit and whip out a few hubs. Worst case, I am no worse than before. I am also going to research which hubs are traffic magnets right now and why.
I am glad to hear that a small percentage of the decline is due to the powers that be :-)

Possibly I overlooked the answer to this question in the forums, but I have noticed over the past three weeks at least, a significant drop of at least half of my traffic views during this period. And of course a...

Noticed that my earnings previously posted for Monday the 20th (which were already reflected in my overall earnings and which looked typical to begin with), have now been reduced to something that looks most atypical,...

I'm very happy with the results of the niche sites. It's a win-win for HubPages and writers like myself. But I'm a bit curious about the process for choosing Hubs that go on those sites.One of my most successful Hubs on...

Many people have asked how the new sites are performing so far. The latest Newsletter provides a general overview, but I'd also like to invite Hubbers who have had Hubs moved to discuss your experiences here. Overall,...

I started writing Hubs yesterday. I've been greeted with the warmest encouragement and praise from fellow members and I already have 12 followers, but I haven't earned one cent yet. I have Amazon and Google Ad's set up....
