On August 26 it will be one year since my hubs took a 90% hit. It happened without warning or explanation, but when the ashes settled, I only had 10% of my former views.
I went crazy trying to figure out what went wrong.
I removed 47 articles so that I could create a niche site.
I revamped every single article.
I asked everybody for suggestions and took most of them.
As time passed, I realized what happened. School started. Summer vacations ended. Nobody really needed to read very much of what I was writing about.
So, I waited.
Spring eventually came, and views slowly started climbing.
Tomorrow, the number of views I had left after cleaning out my site will have doubled!
I better enjoy my little victory, because school is starting again this week.
There has to be groups on FB and elsewhere who are very into camping and RV-ing. I recommend that you advertise your exceptional informative articles on that subject to those people.
The above isn't my idea -- wish I could claim it. I read about it in a hub by Lyoness913 and I think she has some ideas for getting traffic that might actually work.

Hope this will help you Sandy. Your articles are so useful and I know there are lots of people out there who would love to get their hands on them (or eyes if you prefer).
Au Fait: Thanks. I will read it more thoroughly tomorrow, but after taking a peek, I think there are some great ideas there. Within the next hour or so I should hit 300,000. My goal was to make to that point before school started, and I'm happy to say it will now happen.
I truly appreciate all of the support you have given me in recent months.
PS I just looked again and 300,00 is already there...and counting! Yaayyy
Ah, yes that makes sense. You have very seasonal type articles. Some great looking ones though!
You have a lot of hubs on RVs. Why don't you change "TIMETRAVELER2" into RVTRAVELLER?

I write how-to and recipe hubs. I know the recipe hubs will make money eventually but I have read that technical hubs get more views. What is your thoughts or experience on this topic?

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned...

I've been writing hubs for over 2-4 years now and haven't made a dollar let alone a dime in a month. I keep hearing about how people make $100 a month but haven't explained all of the details on how they did that. I've...
