I know that its summer, the weather is nice, and we have just had July 4th in the states, but has anybody elses earnings and traffic taken a nosedive for these first 5 days of July?
It happened to me last month as well for the first week, and I ended up smashing my monthly record, so I am not worried... just curious.
It seems that almost all topics have nosedived for me, but the biggest is - naturally - my soccer hubs. With England and the US out of the competition, most English people are turning their backs to the rest of the tournament.
It is hard to ignore completely though.... a very good day sometime soon wouldn't go amiss!
Anybody else feeling the slowness? My traffic stats are very low despite me being a featured author right now, and they include my 'Hubpages Earnings Disclosed' hub which is getting a couple of hundred views a day!
Actually, this month is starting off way better for me than June did - had an $8+ day yesterday (AdSense) and I've sold several Amazon products already and overall traffic numbers seem to be up...I sure hope it keeps up like this or even better!
Sorry to hear yours is slow, Ryan - yet I'm sure it's still way better than mine!
Yeah now you mention it, I made myself a cup of tea and left the teabag in, because it tried to hide and I nearly choked on the twat!, then I slipped on a banana skin the other day, of all the things to slip on, a comedy banana skin!!!!
Oh, you meant traffic....just a normal weekend slump for me and now they are going back to normal slowly!!
lmao at waynet's crap start to July. My kid had a great time playing in the garden on 1st July, ran in, gave me a big hug, only then did I realise his arm was covered in bird poo - that was a pretty crap start to the month.
Traffic went into freefall because my Vuvuzela hub had been seriously propping it up, and now the world has realized a vuvuzela is just an annoying piece of plastic, rather than some sort of magical trumpet that will spirit your team towards victory.
Now, with your sad stories of rubbish traffic, you have given me renewed hope that traffic will pick up.
Traffic was slightly down (10-15%) over the weekend for me, and earnings were slightly below average. Looks like traffic is trending back upwards today. Mine is mostly evergreen content; a bit of it is seasonal though.
I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one that has seen a dive the last few days! We didn't go anywhere for the 4th so I've been spending some time in the last week or so trying to improve my keywords and such, as well as getting a few links out, and then had about a 40% drop in traffic so I was very worried that I'd somehow offended the search engine gods . That said, the handful of Adsense clicks I did get were all $1+ each, so I can't complain there . Today I see my traffic creeping back up, it's pretty much normal now and about 10%-15% below the temporary spike I had when I started playing with my hubs, so must just be people enjoying their long weekend and time away from their computers.
I figure it's all a circle - and ebb and a flow - it'll come back around again but yes, I do think it is summer and holidays and vacations have to factor in somewhere. But it's early - it'll bounce back!
AdSense is way down today hereabouts. Traffic seems about average. But clicks and eCPM...yuck.Anybody also having a bad AdSense day, so I can feel happy I'm not alone? Or anybody want to make me frantic by...
I discovered RedGage a few days ago. You can post photos, documents, videos and links on the site, and get paid for doing so. Only cents, but to get paid to post links to hubs or sites is novel. So I now have several...
Well, was there another black and white animal crapping overnight? I don't have a lot of views, but it was climbing. Penguin only nudged it downward temporarily, then it recovered. Panda did nothing to it. I was just...
When checking my hub account I found my hubpage visits for April 10 to be listed way below the norm, and there was no drop in traffic. I think hubpages accidently placed their 40 percent share of visits as my visits,...
