I deleted about 10 of my under performing older hubs yesterday and now my readership has really tanked for ALL OF MY REMAINING HUBS. My best performing hub that sees an average of 75 visitors per day is only showing a total of 9 views. My total view for today is at (24)!?!?!? Have I been penalized for deleting under performing hubs or is Hubpages experiencing technical issues.

Maybe they will sneak upstairs (or down the hall) to surf the net?
I have read somewhere here that google search engines take into account the page-views to compute ranking. Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an...
Is anyone else seeing a strange spike today? I've been getting less than 10 page views per day lately, but it's over 500 today and still rising. The source is undetectable using Analytics, Webmaster Tools, or HubPages...
I noticed last week that traffic to my hubs surge, and i was very happy but surprisingly things started changing about two days ago when i saw declined in my daily page views. More so, most of my hubs on google first...
