I'm probably going to curse myself, but after a six to eight week (august 23 through October 18) period where I saw a pattern of 4-5 day surge, 1 week plunge I'm seeing very steady traffic - it's been steady for the last 3 weeks (since October 19)...
Anyone other surge and plungers seeing the same?
SimeyC, I am probably jinxing myself, but things have stabilized on this end - at least no more recent plunges. Of course, as soon as I hit "submit" on this post, I'll probably plunge!
After the early Sept. drop, I didn't see much increase until about a week to a week and a half ago...was back up to pre-panda levels for about a week, and dropped again this weekend. Just waiting it out. There's one particular hub that cues me in, ranks on first place during my small surges, goes away into oblivion during the plunges, but stays on page one of other search engines. Not worth stressing over at this point.
The surge/plunge is affecting me. About four weeks ago, my traffic was nearly three times what it is today (after a phenomenal recovery from the initial Panda). This has been a progression starting a month ago, each day, each week, showing less and less traffic despite continuing to publish hubs.

I'm curious to see how long I can expect to be in the depths of Google's sandbox.I've noticed that people rise and fall in waves, depending on when you switched over to the subdomains, so I want to get a general idea as...

I was loving that my traffic was doubled for a while... it was hitting levels I had never seen before on HubPages.But today I just noticed it's down at least 1,000 views, and I check pretty much every day.I'm not sure...

By "the plunge", I mean specifically mean suddenly losing over 80% of traffic during the period from the 10th August* up until the present (technically speaking, it's the google traffic that goes, of course,...
