In the last few weeks I have noticed that my hubs when when first published will have a very high viewing and then about 3-4 days later and for a week or so afterwards, they will drop to zero. It isn't just certain hubs, but any that I have written. They have never done this before and it doesn't make any sense. My stats in the last three days have not oved all that much either although I know they are being read becasue I would get a comment and it not show up on the stats page.
Anyone know what is up with all this or has anyone else been getting this too?
It's always been my normal experience that I have a spike of traffic when a Hub is first published, then the traffic bombs. The initial spike is all Hubbers, and I have to wait till my Hub moves up the search engine rankings before I get any more visitors. I've seen complaints that Google is taking a long time to index Hubs so that could be the reason behind the lack of traffic, however....
This sounds weird - maybe you should email the HubPages team.
Actually for the first time, my hubs are doing well. Hope things work out for you soon
Have you got Google analytics? The figures arn't an exact match with hubpages data but the trends are the same. You can at least see if the highs and lows are real or not.
Yes I have that. I don't know how to use it, but I have it at my Google Adsense account. I just thought it weird that they would all of a sudden fall like that. My older hubs are having no problems and are getting views, but it's just the new ones that seem to take a nose dive.
I guess no one knows or has had these problems. It's been 4 hours since someone (ME) posted last.
Usually when you first publish the hub, you get the spike from email alerts that your fans click and check out as well as other hubpage views. They drop, and eventually (sometimes) pick back up.
Lately, I've found indexing quite slow. I guess it's just me. But I have 7 days worth of hubs not indexed. They just indexed my 2nd hub from 8 days ago today. They'll probably index the next one tomorrow. One a day, but 7 days behind for me, which is hurting my traffic.
Not sure if that's something you've looked into.
