The past couple of months has been bliss with rapidly raising of traffic on a few hubs particularly and overall steady rise.. However, I noticed that in the past two days traffic drastically dropped like one hub with 2000-2200 views per day is getting 300 views. Like what is up?
This is the result of HubPages redirecting everything from subdomains back to the root domain.
Thanks a lot Maffew. Do you supposed it will stabilize soon? I guess that explains why in adsense it shows earning from hubpages rather than K Kiss
It's very hard to tell. The redirection preserves backlinks and traffic because it directs it all to the new URLs, but it eventually becomes a matter of how Google decides to treat it in the new location.
In the meantime, if you're not sure where the traffic was originally coming from, you may want to consider looking at that in Analytics to get a better idea of what's happening. It's most likely organic traffic that has decreased, but social media can also be affected. There's some concern at the moment that Pinterest may be showing warnings on pins that lead to a redirected URL. Some other social media networks might have a similar reaction.
You may also want to look at which articles have moved over to the root domain so far, which you can do by searching for specific articles in Google. If you look at whether it is listed with your subdomain URL or the new URL, this will tell you whether Google has updated it in search yet. Articles with higher traffic and search rankings seem to update faster.
The HP staff did predict there would be a temporary loss of traffic, while all the redirects settled in.
