So, I hadn't been here very long. I was just starting to see solid, consistent traffic from google and a small, but consistent earning. Then BAM. Google now gives me less than 10% of my page views. Bummer. And $0.04 over the last week, double bummer - without a 'first wave' invite to the new ad program (although I never counted on this for significant income, it was nice to get something for the work).
BUT, all is not lost. I noticed that my fellow hubbers are still reading and commenting on my hubs.
Even though it doesn't generate income, it makes my writing feel less useless so...
I feel your pain sister! For the vast majority of us in here we have a difficult time learning the ropes. It's hard enough without the Google thing coming on.
Things are always changing, many times for the better. This too shall pass!
New here too and my hubs have a but died in the last 36 hours. The Priest is by the bedside administering the last rites to many of them.
But, as TahoeDoc said, the feedback from the comments in regards to my writing skills has been most welcome and has given me a much need boost to expanding my writings.
Thank you everybody for your support and comments...
Been here a long time and most of mine are making death bed conversions.
Thanks and thanks for the 'follow'. You were my 100th...fan. Yay!
I understand, the choices are wait or move. I'm waiting for now, just a bit bummed, because I like this site, but wouldn't write just for me to keep reading my own stuff over and over. That's why it made me feel better to see hubbers' visits.
If I was a patient person, I wouldn't have picked a field where all my medications and interventions work in 30 seconds or less, LOL.
This has always been a good lesson for me - not getting instant results, but I don't have to like it

This is very difficult for me. I have created 3 hubs so far and am learning more and more about writing hubs as each day progresses. One of the more enjoyable and surprising aspects of HubPages is the community here. It...

Ok, so since the Penguin update I have sat here listening to lots of Hubbers complain of loss of traffic. Now we're not talking a little fluctuation in numbers, we are talking 80% gone overnight! For people...

After reading every post, every article, etc... on the subject matter I thought I'd start a post with arguments against Amazon being the source of the free fall in traffic that many of us experienced last week as I...
