      My traffic has been increasing day to day, but it went slightly down yesterday (not much). Prob because of followers etc..

      Are you using HP ad program? My earnings are doing good, but my adsense account is embarrassing as ---- lol.

          @Richieb799
          I was actually above 10,000 views, but am slightly below it now. My account stats differ from the stats at the top of my page, which say 7000.

          My understanding is that this is because the 7000 views are 60% of my impression share? Or it is a delay like a staff member told me.

            The stat page is pretty much up to date.  The graph on your profile seems to lag several days.  The numbers in google adsense are indeed your 60% share of the impressions.

              Yes, I figured the stats delayed. The account numbers are accurate then. I have a feeling the hurricane is taking away some of my traffic because of power outages.

              I just hope my traffic stays steady, I am quite paranoid  neutral Google seems to be unpredictable.

              One of my hubs just reached 100,000 views -- one that was published in November 2010. That hub maintained quite a lot of views per day even after panda - not as many - but still 30-50%.

              Hopefully, my other hubs will fare similar how that performed even when crippled by Google LOL! cool

                Paranoid?  Paranoid?!!  Why on earth would any hubber be paranoid about google traffic?

                You worry me now.  I haven't seen any drop, except for a little over the weekend, and I always get that.  Today set another record for both 24 hour and one day views in fact. 

                But now you report a drop - am I next?  Paranoia indeed!

                  Sorry to set in worry lol tongue

                  But I believe there are too many variables to pick out increases and decreases in traffic.

                  A lot of people went back to school today, which means less internet users online. The hurricane is another factor. And various other variables..

      I'm back to pre-panda levels both in terms of traffic and earnings. What is more exciting for me though is that pre-panda I had a couple of very active niches (about 15 hubs) that brought in probably 90% of the traffic at my highest level.

      Those niches (together with my latest niche) now pull in about 40% of my traffic - so the biggest gain has been in my 'bog standard' hubs!

      I would say my traffic has gone up about 50% on days I have no new hubs....in numbers it looks like 200 before and now right around 300 a day.....and when I publish a new hub I am reaching between 500 and 600 hits a day.

        Hmm, I guess I should try to publish a new hub.

  2. iQwest profile image71
    iQwestposted 5 years ago

    My traffic was solid to slightly improved after the sub-domain switch.  Then, my traffic began to gradually slip and fell to about 50% of the new levels I had seen after the sub-domain switch.

    Then, on August 15, 2011, my traffic fell off the cliff even more (another 50% drop).  From that point pushing forward, my traffic has been steady, but at drastically low levels I have never seen except when I first started writing on HubPages in January with a limited amount of Hubs.

    Long story short, this is the worst my Hubs have ever performed!

  3. iQwest profile image71
    iQwestposted 5 years ago

    As one more point of reference, back on March 22, 2011, according to Google Analytics, I received the most page-views I've ever received through my HubPages account - 701.

    By the end of March 2011, pushing into May, my traffic slipped down to roughly 50 page-views per day.

    After the sub-domain switch, my traffic spiked back up to a height of 232 page-views on July 26, 2011.  And now, I'm down to 30-40 page-views per day.

    In the last week or so I have been experiencing higher traffic than usual. Even better than pre-Panda. And much of it is coming from Google. But for some reason there is no AdSense income from HubPages. AdSense shows page views, but no clicks. I also use AdSense on my business site and it's bringing in some nice income there. Strange.

    1. wilderness profile image96
      wildernessposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      If you have enabled HPads then that is probably the reason for low numbers of clicks on adsense - most of the adsense ads are replaced by HPads.

      You can turn off HPads and see what happens - a very few hubbers have reported better income without them.

      1. Glenn Stok profile image97
        Glenn Stokposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        Yes I know SOME AdSense ads are replaced by HP ads. I do see a good number of AdSense views as I mentioned. Just no clicks on them. I plan to turn it off HP Ads just after I get my first payment. If I turn it off sooner I won't get what accumulated so far.

        1. wilderness profile image96
          wildernessposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          If there is even one adsense ad on the hub (and there always is, whether HPads in enabled or not) you will get a view.  And if indeed there is just one adsense ad the odds of a reader clicking it aren't very high.

          A side note - if you turn of HPads you will keep the money earned.  You just won't get paid until you turn it back on and accumulate enough (with what you already have) to reach the $50 payout.  You won't lose what you've earned.

          1. Glenn Stok profile image97
            Glenn Stokposted 5 years ago in reply to this

            I'm way ahead of you. smile  My thinking is that once I turn off HP ads I won't turn it on again for the reason you just stated. I expect once I have only AdSense, it will improve beyond the HP ads. So I'm going to wait it out to get the HP payment. But thanks for the clear explanation. This is good for anyone who may not know the details.

              wildernessposted 5 years ago in reply to this

              You may indeed make more with only Adsense.  Probably not - the large majority have reported earning more with HPads enabled, but it might work.  It's worth a trial period at least.

    Traffic has certainly increased, I mean it is almost double than pre-panda levels. Though, earnings are not as high as could have been. But, at least my hubs are now visible and getting continuous traffic.

  6. shogan profile image88

    I'm on a very small scale, but traffic levels have definitely shot up over the last five days or so.  Still not much, but it's nice to see it.

  7. Dorsi profile image91
    Dorsiposted 5 years ago

    My page views have doubled in the last few days, to even double Pre-Panda days. My earnings have also doubled to better than Pre-Panda. About 3,000 plus page views per day and $15.00 a day between adsense and HP ads. Something good has clicked in for me and I love it!! Hope it stays this way!

    Right after the Panda hit my page views had sank to about 800 views per day, so this is a significant increase.

    1. David 470 profile image86
      David 470posted 5 years ago in reply to this

      $15.00 is about how much I am making at this rate, but my CPM is not that great. My traffic is great, but if the CPM was better, $28.00 a day would be possible or more.

    Everything is way better!  I will make about 4X this month what I made in Google last month.  YAY!

    My traffic has grown considerably..  I thought I was doing good before Panda, but my numbers are nearly triple what they were pre-Panda - which is great!  I did have a slight "dip" over the weekend, but I figure that's just because of the hurricane and the weekend.. but still higher than ever.

  10. kmackey32 profile image79

    I need $6 bucks to reach payout by the end of the month. At this rate it is possable. I wouldnt have said that a few months ago though. Fingers are crossed.

    I just reached payout levels (barely) for Adsense for the first time ever - my earnings are way up (and I have the HP program enabled). Both HP and Adsense are doing really well this month - I hope this traffic increase sticks around for the long haul. This is a very happy month! smile

    Well, I'm definitely doing something different, and it's not just that most of you have more hubs and tenure than I. Perhaps it's that I have no backlinking. I'd barely begun when Panda struck. Since then, however, traffic has been flat or continuing to taper off (except for an odd spike last week when Fbook picked up one hub for a day--I even beat $0.20 three days in a row). An average of 8 page views per day for 53 hubs all together is lousy! My wife is getting 8 times my traffic and hers goes up and down consistent with your experiences.

  13. wilderness profile image96

    I'm doing better as well.  Although...I just noticed that I've gotten 666 views from google dot com today.  How appropriate is that?

  14. Benjimester profile image89
    Benjimesterposted 5 years ago

    Yeah, whatever HP is continuing to do, it's working great.  I'm at 5 times my post panda traffic levels.  I started a pretty aggressive link building campaign once the subdomain switch happened though.  That probably accounts for a lot of it.

      You need to be careful with 'aggressive' link building campaigns. Google really does slap penalties on people for excessive linking practices.

      Also, my traffic is far higher than it ever was pre-panda or post panda and I almost never backlink.

    My traffic is now on an upward curve (since something like Thursday last week), like it is taking up where it left off pre-Panda. It is the highest it has ever been. Yey!

    Mine has improved but nowhere near pre-Panda levels yet. I am up a solid 25% overall and holding. Traffic doubled over the last week to 3/4 of pre-Panda, and clicks are improving also - will see if that continues - we live in hope big_smile
