Hubpages has now over-taken Squidoo once again, but interestingly, the recovery isn't yet back to pre-panda, even though some of us are showing traffic well above pre-panda. Perhaps there are some subdomains that have dropped?
Interesting. But were still not at pre-panda levels?
Don't forget the large number of Hubbers who left following the rule changes. Many of them had high traffic.
Presumably if say a third of us (not me yet) have seen rises but the other two thirds have been junked, it will show a decline post panda .. maybe this is it .. the good stuff rises and the poor sinks.
The Panda Update did a lot of damage, not just at Hub Pages, but lots of other places too. I have seen many people I know on Hubs setting up their own new websites and blogs and many are being successful. I have even done it myself, and many writers and hubbers have discovered a new side to earning from our own writing. And the lure of writing with fewer "middle men" is very appealing, for obvious reasons. But I will always be part of Hub pages. I love Hubs and the community and the folks here!
And the traffic will come back. It is rising - that much I do know.
Thanks for sharing that graph, it is very interesting. I never realized HP did so much better than Squidoo pre-Panda.

I've just checked my Analytics and I can see a definite change in my traffic on May 3 and 4. My HubPages account seems to be heading for the toilet again, after recovering all its traffic in the last Panda. ...
