    Last summer vacation, my traffic was pretty high it reacher 250-400 plus per day now, I only got 150-250 views per day. I was wondering because it searches must increase since it is school opening in Philippines now. I wonder why, hmm. My earnings every day is starting to decrease too.

    Is hubpages hit again by this update? Can we do something to alleviate this traffic decrease?

      Yes, my traffic has decreased too, about a few weeks ago during the update but it has risen since. Don't despair! Your hubs should pick up soon, make sure that they are all high quality and check their rankings. You will find more info in the link below:

      I had the same problem. My site alexa rank decreased and the traffic also decreased. But when you create quality content by researching keyword then again with few days the traffic also increased and so alexa rank

      Since Panda hit around May 21st my traffic had been falling but the last two days has seen a big increase.

      I have heard it takes about 10 days to roll out completely, I guess they are still tweeking it and making improvements.

    Just a few days ago I was up to 1350, now they are around 300..very frustrating.

      What? That is so high, I never reach that number before. Amazing!

    I seem to be pretty steady at around 3,000 views/day.

      3000 per day rob? You're hubs generate too much traffic, never reach that views in my one year of stay here on hubpages.

        It took about 4 years to get to that point.  Also my traffic is extremely seasonal as most are about pool service.

    I'm seeing a downward trend as well, but not too drastic.  I wonder if some of it is due to just summertime drops - people are out of school, vacationing, busy outside etc. I wonder because my traffic from other sources besides Google has also dropped.  I am going to wait it out (what else can you do?) and see what happens.  I think overall it will end up balancing out.

    I am seeing a down trend. I had 300-350 views per day and it is reduced to 80. I think hub pages is on a downslide. It happens to all. Suite 101 and helium network closed. I am keeping my fingers crossed about hub pages. Lets see 8 months down the line.

      over the years I found that it is not Hubpages.it is what the search engines deem to be good or bad content.  I am first page of Google for several of my articles with very general keywords.  Like "green pool"  I am currently blasting around 3,000 views/day with only 20 hubs

          yes, janshare, I wish i could reach that views too, 3k per day is just a great number!

            As I said though,  that only lasts about 4 months out of the year.  During the cold season I'm lucky to get 2 or 3 hundred/day.  Right now my earnings are between $25-$35/day.

                  3000 views a day at $5.00 CPM would be $15 a day,  different topics have different CPM values.  I guess if the CPM was around $10, $25/$35 a day would be feasible. On Youtube videos, the highest CPM I have ever seen is $147!
                  This reinforces crazyhorsesghost's comment in this thread and others, focus on a niche that you know well and create high quality, useful pages.

                    Supposedly we aren't supposed to talk about specific cpm values,  not sure why,  but whatevs.  Mine has been greater than $10.00

                    Wow. That's amazing. Seasonal topics tend to very well in their peak times, you must be really rolling in the cash these days! Imagine the potential of writing more hubs in the "swimming pool" genre, you'd be rich!  smile

    I keep saying this but stop depending only on Google. Again stop depending on Google. Look for on topic niche forums that allow a link in the signature and post there. Look for related Google and Yahoo Groups and post there. Do guest posts on Blogs. But the real key thing is to do Evergreen Hub Pages. Always over 1500 words, photos, videos, polls, etc. Offer real help to the person looking for the key word or key words.

    I guess I should start working on my hubs again. I was at 300 views per day last year, but now I am down to 10 views a day if I am lucky!

    Ahh well, I will work on getting my hubs back up since my freelance work is drying up!

    Mine have bombed! I went up to 5,000 a day, for about a week, usually around 1,500 a day! Now its down to around 500! ah well, it was good while it lasted!

      What 5k views that is sooo high! You are amazing Nell. I hope I could reach that number in the future here. It seems you are a SEO master

        lol! no Ken it was a pure fluke! goodness knows what happened but the smile on my face was huge....then it dropped big time, I think they got my hubs muddled up with someone else, so they dropped me like a stone!

    My traffic was cut in half but I strongly believe it is due to the enormous amount of hubs which are stolen. I think I have been Google slapped because so much of my content can be found elsewhere. Hopefully as I remedy the situation my traffic will return.
