There are many websites like HP, for instance squidoo, infobarrel etc.....
Can anyone tell me if they have lost some of their traffic???
With squidoo there is barely a whisper on the forum... so, although I have been on there only a short time I think there was no effect on them.
Infobarrel is very difficult to tell, because they had problems with changing their layout which meant the entire site had to be reindexed by google... but if anything, I think they have been gaining traffic rather than loosing it since the algo change.
Ezinearticles has been hammered... but... none of my articles lost position in SERPs, and from my point of view nothing really changed there. I guess for people going after 100,000 views a month topics it has changed massively.
Thomas, this gives me some idea. Thanks for the insight!!
Just after the crash I saw plenty of IB threads about massive traffic losses, and I believe that you even participated in one ThomasE!
So I would hazard a guess that they were indeed affected
Ultimate Hubber, I believe that Squidoo emerged pretty well for most of their best search terms. The only overall gainers were eHow, so if you are thinking about writing elsewhere then consider trying there
But, around two weeks before that they completely trashed their indexing on google through the redesign. Pretty much all the content on the site had to be recrawled by google... and I think the entire site has been in the google dance since then.
There got to be something special about EHow. I often see an EHow page high in SERPs while browsing or researching for hubs; but they don't share impressions like HP.
I suspect bribery. I can't think of any other excuse for their high placement in SERPs!
I've written a few articles for ehow myself and know for a fact that there are some good writers there, but 99% of the ehow articles that actually turn up in my searches are written by some generic "expert" and are useless crap.
Yeah read some too, IB has not been left unaffected by G's algo changes...

Now that the transfer is finished and the HP site has been evaluated by both the new Google Panda and Penguin algorithms, the effects of the transferred content to HP can be dissected.1. In the week before the...

People have suggested I join Infobarrel so I did. I unpublished and deleted a hub here about La Guancha in Tenerife and thought I would use it as my first InfoBarrel article. The first problem I ran into was it said I...

If you do, how is search traffic to your articles there? Has there been a recent change from the Google Panda or Penguin updates? Would you recommend this site to other writers?

I will be completing 50 hubs here shortly. Hubapges is the only platform that I've written on. My question is, should I go to other writing sites and publish there, or should I continue writing more hubs here...

I keep up with Google news fairly regularly to see what's coming down the pipe. I still feel vague self-righteousness over raising the pre-Panda alarm, only to be scoffed at for suggesting that Google might start...

This drop in traffic seems to have affected the majority of us who transitioned here from Squidoo. After we updated our articles are traffic virtually stopped dead. The question is why? Was our redirect from Squidoo...
