After the recent Google changes traffic and earnings for most hubbers has decreased. Are you still adding hubs to your profile or waiting for things to settle down before you plan on your strategy. I am finding it difficult to find inspiration to write more hubs. I am sure things will improve as hubpages is certainly a top website with high Alexa ranking. Would like to know your views on it.
Waiting for things to settle down or Official notice from HP on what to expect.
I'm waiting too, although I did start writing another two hubs today.
I will not be publishing a great deal even if things were to get back to normal, my portfolio will remain, but any new hubs will be promoting my other projects. The whole of 2011 is going to be dedicated to diversificatiion, including:
- Several new websites
- Several eBooks
No, am waiting for an explanation about some curious things discovered about past actions
"Are you publishing hubs?"
Not yet, but I have been fooling around with the Title Tuner.
I will go ahead and hope for the best. Still waiting eagerly to hear something from the HubPages staff as to what all of this means. Some direction perhaps?
I have published a few hubs. I'm just starting out so having those hubs out there gives me more chances to learn. If it fails to work then I can always work on other projects.
I have no problem with starting my own websites but I have yet to identify a niche on which I could focus.
Just published one..the traffic is coming back and the hubs are floating up so I guess it is time to be working.
It's Monday though, traffic always increases on a Monday.
I am keen to see what my Monday traffic is like, but it will be nowhere near what it usually is on a Monday.
My Monday will become my pre-slap weekend at best, in other words my weekdays have all become weekends (maybe even a little worse) and my weekends have become what my weekends were 6-8 months ago.
Don't worry Ryan it will soon be back to normal... you have great hubs so why do you worry so much...
Because I am not convinced that everything will be rosy, and I am pretty convinced that even if they do get bettwe, things will get worse first - remember that this is a US only change so far! If my European traffic goes kerplunk that will be the end for me on here I sense
Yeah, I am worried, and I will be until I see anything which suggests that I should be optimistic.
At least finish your Blogger SEO series before you abandon HP.
Ryan, may i ask what your earnings have been like compared to normal percantage wise?
Bizaarely my earnings havent been affected in the past 5 days even though my traffic has halved.
I don't think I am going to be publishing any more hubs until I see what happens. Hubpages has a great interface, and has a great community.
We just need to get rid of those people who barely use the site, and when they do - just as spam and copied content.
I think I'll concentrate on finding alternative sources of traffic for my current hubs, rather than publishing any new ones. The last hub I published only got two hits from Google, and I still think it has potential. So I have to find some other traffic for it.
No I want to see what policy changes or new quality standards, if any, HubPages makes, before I spend time changing or writing new hubs.
I was a bit down initially, but I love showing off, er, I mean creating quality content. So I have pretty much carried on with my mission to reduce the internet to a floating cess pit of junk.
What is nice is to get the final seal of approval from Google that my stuff really is as rubbish as I thought it was.
I so can't wait till they try driving up my road to take pictures of my house again.
A tiny increase seen in latest stats
My stat are down a little but many red arrows today.
The big question is if we have all been tarred with the same brush i.e. Is there are a universal penalty applied to all hubs by Google? Linking structure and other setup issues?
All that graph says to me is that US traffic is lower now than it was on Christmas day and that global traffic is about the same now as it was on Christmas day.
Each day around 75% of my money is being made whilst the average European person is awake. What petrifies me is that much of that 75% could also be gone.
At the current level of earnings I can justify keeping my Hubpages up, but not publishing. With a further decrease, and no improvement after a couple of months, my content would probably be more valuable to me elsewhere.
This is related to what I'm wondering. Do we have too many outbound links to sales sites, and too many inbound links from low-quality blogs/back-linking/bookmarking sites?
But I'm guessing that wasn't an aspect of the algorithm change or someone would have mentioned it I reckon.
My traffic seems to edging back to normal levels just published a new hub on the 2012 London Olympic Games in 2012
I'm actually working on my website rather than publishing until I hear from the HP staff on what they plan to do and what corrections we as hubbers need to make. I don't want to write something and then go back and fix it.
Ehh.. I've been slowing down as I have approached 300 hubs. I've been neglecting my main site a bit too much so have gone back to giving it regular attention.
But aside from that, yes, I have momentarily stopped new hubs because it makes it easier to see what the real effect of this Google change will be. If I'm adding new stuff, that distorts it a little.
remeber 75% of something is better than 100% of nothing The drop has been less than a week - Ryankett you have been here two years
That is true, but don't mistake my fear for a depression. I am taking positives out of this, but I want to focus my optimism in the right place. Being over-optimistic about this platform will detract from my new found motivation to diversify, so a slight pessimism is in itself a positive. If you can decipher that
I have actually only been publishing for around 18 months, rather than 2 years
I am a firm believer that publishing hubs that can generate unlimited income is better than playing video games. I plan on publishing 50+ hubs very soon. Well at least it is a goal of mine.
I also want to see what is up with this hubpage video thingie I've barely heard about.
