    Hi guys

    Before the google update I was on around 140 views per day, now down to 40 and its not rising back again. sad

    I have always tried to write high quality articles (if anything my highest quality article is the one that has been hit the hardest). I started writing in February and my traffic rose steadily until this update, now I'm back to where I was in April, however this time I'm not making any improvement.

    I have written two new hubs since the update and neither of them are gaining any hits (from both hubs 2 views from google in 2 weeks).

    Any advice? this is blooming frustrating.

      Ever since Panda/Penguin, my views have bumped along between awful and are you kidding me?.  I write in the gardening niche, so this time of year is usually slow for me anyways, but never this slow.  What little traffic I get is from Pinterest, Bing and Yahoo.

    Unfortunately my views and earnings are way down too.
    I think they're about a quarter (if that) of what they were a couple of months ago.

    Very, VERY disappointing.

    Sadly there has been NO increase in traffic after the 100K Squidoo articles were added to HP. So everyone is competing on a site with many more articles, opportunities diluted. See http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126677

    I think it's safe to say just about everybody here took one to the gut after the last Panda update. I've had days where I'll get an occasional "burst" of traffic but for the most part, my traffic is comatose.

    I thought my traffic was recovering. But, apparently, there's been yet another update and it's fallen flat again.

    My views on my main account have returned to pre-Panda levels over the last week.  Fingers crossed that I don't Jinx myself. My newer account is still down in the dump.

      Which one is doing well, the dog-centric one?

        Yes, the dog-centric one has recovered, and the CPM is going back up again after being cut in half back in July.

      How many hubs do you have in your second account? Do you think Google is mainly penalizing those thin accounts that have very few pages in that subdomain?

        The little account is very thin lol.  It has 5-6 hubs on a scatter of subjects, so it may be that Panda despised it.  Prior to Panda it was getting 200-300 views a day.  Now it is at 50-70 views a day.  I am finding it difficult to get inspired to write something for that account and try to help it out of its hole. 

        However, thanks to Amazon, that account has made payout the last 3 months.  So, I should buck-up, and try to jump start it again.

    Every time, I seem to be getting encouraged and more page views, a Panda destroys my views and about the time I start earning again, along comes another Panda!  Bad, Bad.

    Which update? There have been several.

    Apparently the most recent is an update reclassifying thin content which hit on Oct 25th. See the following:
