Till May 31 I had an average page views of 550 every day. But today I have notice that it has fallen from 550 to just 150. It is too low. My highest performing hub has just 5 page view. Why does this happen? How can I raise my traffic?
Where were your views coming from? Within HP, from facebook, or through google? You can see where the traffic for each hub comes from by clicking the stats button at the top of the hub when you view it. You can also see what searchers were typing into google when they found your page. You can do the same search and see where you rank for that search. Investigate your top performing hubs and try to see what has happened.
Personally I don't see that there would be many searches for your titles, and I think I have mentioned this to you before on a previous thread.
BUT google and the internet is not a secure place, your views will go up and down due to the holidays, weekends, football matches and the whims of the search engines.
Mine have also dropped from 250-410 views per day to150-250 per day. I wonder why, it is already school opening here in Philippines and and it started to drop, but last summer, it was very high
In weekends traffic slows down usually. It might have picked up by now.
Why traffic is slowing down during the week ends?
Traffic way down of course. But I am happy to report that I did not hit a new ytd low this weekend. And I continue to do better than I was doing this time last year.
My traffic has skyrocketed and I was wondering why. I haven't written in awhile and just wrote one article, could that be the reason?
Brie, My traffic has skyrocketed also to about double what it was. I wonder if it is the new Panda changes or what. I wondered if anyone else had experienced this. The traffic seems to have come from Google.
When Google noticed you were from Green Acres, they made a positive manual adjustment.
My traffic (which has never been much to shout about) has increased slightly over the past several weeks... I'm not complaining but on the other hand I'm kinda waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Lots going on with Google it seems. I've also experienced a gigantic drop in traffic over the past week. The same thing happened to me around February but my numbers recovered nicely and were climbing steadily until this most recent crash. Fingers crossed that my hubs will recover again!
You could write more broadly on topics that people will gravitate towards. Right now you are primarily involved in writing about things that an electrician might find interesting, but even then these are specialty topics and most of your electricians who are already in the field would already be familiar with the content of your articles.
Initially I was writing on few common topics. But I didnot receive much traffic. Thats why I started writing on topics related to electrical engineering.
Electrical engineering is what you know and what you love. Seems to me you are one of the lucky ones who has found their writing niche. I'd keep going with it and let the chips fall where they may. And as a side note, people search for answers to basic and not-so-basic electronics questions all the time; your niche would be a good one.
It could also be that most of your readers are students - and when school lets out, they don't do that type of research anymore. In addition to these types of articles - which presumably do well for you - you may consider writing articles for the home handyman DIY type person..
Mine fell from 100 to 10 today.. and one hub that's been on google page 1 for months has fallen to page 4.. not been copied or any of the usual culprits.. anyone had issues today?
Search engine traffic will always fluctuate depending on search demands. Seasonal topics will receive good traffic this month, and low traffic next month, and vice versa.
You may also want to perfect your good hubs, by adding better images, revising the language there-in, and adding more facts.
Be careful though not to do too much, thereby spamming it. Google may not love too much of your additions and just devalue it.
You should also watch out for spammy links coming your way. Wanting to take advantage of your search favoritism, some spammy links may help send you down the search abyss.

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with...
