Has your HP traffic taken another turn for the Worst?....

    Could it be Panda 2.2 returning to make sure there were no survivers?

    This week traffic has been hit again, I was seeing a loss of 250 views and we thought it was just 4th of July distraction but its continued pretty much all week

    Good job I have my sites now as well

      Actually, my Adsense is continuing to increase every month with payout being reached earlier each month.  Amazon has picked up a wee bit too.  smile

      If this continues this will be my best Adsense month ever on HP!

    my traffic has had an upswing the past couple of weeks. I haven't done anything differently. I'm seeing more google traffic on some of my hubs. I haven't looked closely enough to see if they are topic related or seasoned hubs.

    Yes well of course I know you work very hard on Hubpages and I'm glad  you make payout as well. However I haven't written an article now for almost a month, I'm concentrating on personal websites because I believe in the long term that is the safest place to invest(in your own projects.) * Almost half my earnings came from these last month.*
    I've been following the Ryan Kett, ThisisOli, Wry Lilt and others paths because they no longer write here.. I'm sad to say it but I may write again if I ever see HP getting out of the slump its in.

    July and August are when Americans traditionally take their big summer vacations.  It's not at all out of the ordinary to see summer slumps in traffic from 4th of July through Labor Day.

    I haven't written much here lately either.  Waiting a bit to see the latest "exciting new developments" which inevitably are predicted when a writing site has problems.  smile

    On the internet, July and August are notoriously slow. I wouldn't entirely blame it on Panda. A lot of people go through this, and not just those on Hubpages. So, I second what relache said. smile

      That's definitely comforting! (At least, to know that this is not necessarily Panda-related.)  So, this time of year, we should be concentrating on publishing for the fall and holidays ahead, and building our own sites?  Or, what would you all suggest?

      Randy Godwin, WHAT'S your secret??  spill, spill, please.

    My traffic has been low, but holy!  It hasn't been this low before.  I guess the summer slump is particularly slumpy for me.
