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: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/121989
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
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
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.
CPM values are $10+ ,? I never thought that is possible here, most of us only experienced having $2-$4 CPM which is very low than having $10 CPM. I wonder what type of keywords and niche would generate higher bids. Pretty awesome!
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!
I know, right? I plan on it., I know there's someone on here that writes about electrical stuff. (how to install a 3-way switch, hang a ceiling fan, etc..) Now that's some year round stuff. And probably very busy traffic. People want to save money. Being a pool guy, I know what I charge for certain services. It ain't cheap. So the average "do it yourselfer" will turn to the Internet for answers. That's why I am cranking in the crazy traffic right now. Good niches would be.... Automotive maintenance, plumbing, electrical, well, you get the idea. People want to save money!
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.
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.
After the alleged Google alogrithim update probably after 10 December my traffic has fallen drastically from more then 150 views per day to 50. Traffic was steadily rising but after 10 dec it suddenly plunged showing no...
Google just released what it is calling "Panda4.0", a new addition to its formula for ranking content on webpages. If you have noticed a significant change (up or down) in traffic to your Hubs today,...
For anyone seeing a sudden dip or rise in traffic, be aware that Panda is rampaging again:http://searchengineland.com/panda-update-rolling-204313This may be good news for some who lost traffic in the August update, and...
