Has anyone else noticed a drop in their traffic and earnings. It seems as though there has been a lot more authors present. I noticed a lot more new authors joined especially around June. I think this is a good and bad thing. The good is that there is more content. The bad, well more content is more competition for traffic. This isn't my first account so do go all up in arms over this accounts join date. Has anyone else noticed this trend?
I joined recently, so I must be one of those:)
This topic has been the subject of several threads in the past few weeks.
How would you know how many others joined in June when you have only been here 3 weeks. You must be an alter-ego and just who are you? Yes I have seen a jump in more authors and I have seen a decline but I try to just keep on writing.
I noticed the drop a few days ago. But I'm getting high traffic again.
I hope you don't go all up in arms when I say the opposite, but I've seen a rise in my traffic and earnings.
And we're not competing with each other for traffic. We're competing with millions of others. Any traffic that each of us get to hubpages.com ultimately benefits all our fellow hubbers.
No. I've noticed a rise but that's probably to do with the Hub Challenge.
Re: competition - people are writing different topics, so there shouldn't really be much competition.
Hope your traffic picks up...
I notice a drop in traffic just as frequently as I notice a rise.... what goes up must go down
I am actually getting my highest traffic ever, but thats because I have more hubs than ever before....
The best thing to do = Just write through it.
All I know is I am still getting my 15,000 views a day !
Fortunately, this has not been my experience so there is hope! I have seen major increases in traffic and minor increases in revenue I don't know if this has any correlation with my increased writing or not. I agree with the others though, just keep writing because it does seem to help.
BC - Don't be discouraged by your modest 15,000 a day traffic - things will pick up once you get the hang of Hubbing. I personally get 15 Million hits a day and spend my Adsense earnings on buying cheap airlines and banks!
Actually I've seen a slight drop in traffic too in August but it is supposed to be about the worst month of the year for Internet traffic ..
One thing I've certainly noticed is a drop in fans...about 5 in four days. I don't know what's going on. I guessed I'm not loved anymore because I in a rut and can't bring myself to create any new Hubs. I've been out of commission for 2 months.
From what I've read, I don't think there is a drop, everything is going up, and down. I think it's a cycle, similar to what happens with blogs. I'm more versed in those.
I'm fairly new so have little to compare it to. But I'm reveling in seeing lots of little red arrows point UP UP UP next to my hubs! I agree, though, in that my hubs do tend to be cyclical -- one week up, the next week down. This is very unlike my blogs which are pretty consistent year-on-year (except for one seasonal blog that I write).

I've been noticing quite a drop in traffic the past 2 days. Is it just me?

Am I losing money from my writing here on Hubpages?Although my hubs have been badly hit by another Panda or a Penguin update and the earnings from my Hubs are at their lowest in a few years, I cannot say in all honesty...

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

So in the past 6 months we have all endured a real rollercoaster ride thanks to the big G. Many of us are still really struggling while some of us have reached new heights with our page views. I am happy to...

I have checked with three hubber friends. All four of us have had a reported drop in traffic of significant amount. I am talking about 30 - 35% drop over night.Is this just another temporary glitch in the Hub Page...

I've been experiencing a drop in traffic for the last week or so. I've been seeing a lot of people in the forums talking about how they are seeing increases in traffic, but I am seeing the opposite. Is anyone else...
