Has anyone else seen their earnings actually decrease this week? I swear that the number has actually gone down in the past week. What is up with that? Anyone know?
Yep, drastically. I am thinking that as the hubscore drops so does the earnings. Strange also on amazon sales which used to be good and have dropped drastically despite have relatively same traffic.
Mine are so low that I can't tell. So far I only made $3.12. I never made a sale on Amazon either.
Both traffic and earnings rates are less than stellar these days. Welcome to the beginning of summer and a lot of other problems.
If you are referring to an actual MTD drop; yes, the first week of May data was readjusted.

Yes Audrey, both my traffic and earnings are down about 50%.

Sounds like there are lots of changes going on, and it seems that many Hubbers are discouraged. If you were starting from scratch on the site, would you still put in the effort to build your portfolio of hubs here, or...

On Jan 6 my traffic was very good for me from that day on it's dropped and earnings have dropped. During the holidays I could understand less traffic but now I don't get it.

Just kidding!I'm seeing dozens of threads from people stressing about losing traffic. Asking if this is the end of Hubpages. Asking if it's pointless writing here anymore. Asking if there is even a point to writing...
