Hey Izzy, much of my problem is just as much my fault as it is Panda(Google). I made tons of changes from my originals, just so I could attempt to deal with Panda. And, none of it worked. I have continued to make changes, testing out keywords, editing hubs and the alike.
My traffic is back up around 1000 views a day, but that's just been the last couple of days, yesterday and today. The other day I had a spike to 1100, but then it went back down to 800 views. I have been constantly in the range of 700-1000 views for the last couple of months, which is better than the original Panda hit, which my traffic dropped down to about 250-400 views per day.
Hey Izzy, I am here to make money too. Write for earnings, just like many others. I've always had a slow learning curve and must learn at my own pace. So when I mean I make changes, I make those changes and then wait at least 2-3 weeks before I even think about making any other changes.
If my traffic increases, then I hold off on making any further changes. I continue to monitored my traffic and review where I was previously. I cannot do any more than that.
I'm sorry you're not doing well or having problems bouncing back, I truly am. I recently made layout changes and not going by what I was taught when I first arrived on HP. I am constantly testing different things to get the most impact per hub. Never mind writing a hundred more hubs.
I'm still continuing to write hubs. However, my most recent hub was for the benefit of Hubbers and not really for my benefit. I like HubPages and I've enjoyed my time here and all the people(including YOU) I've met.
Thank you Wilderness. Take all the time you want reaching 300,000....once I pass 500,000 at least for me, it's a race to 1 Million. And, I'd rather it didn't take 2 years and some odd months to get there.
Cool beans, Cags! Like you, I should have reached 500,000 several months ago but Panda slapped me in Aug. as it did Izzy. But today my traffic has suddenly shot up to almost pre-plunge levels, so if it keeps up I will be right behind you! Maybe Izzy will get a break too!
Congrats, that is very impressive and very inspirational, especially to a new hubber like me. I haven't had a bad start here but things can always go better. Keep it up and I wish you a very speedy million hits!
Congratulations Cagsil, hey pop over and look at my profile when you get a chance. There is something there which can get the views you need quickly and keep them coming. It took me a while to talk Paul Williams into letting writers join his platform. I have heard of people ranking on Google within hours and days but never with the three minutes he has had them ranked first page in. Just think you can write a short blog that will feed people to your hubs and get them ranked within, at least days. My blogs there are ranking first page within 48 hours searched by keywords. I gain nothing except the ability to talk to hubber friends a little more often. He gains new friends who will help his platform move forward faster. It is free with no OTO's or upgrades.
Congrats Cagsil, see that's what I was talking about when I was merely trying to reach 100,000 views a few months. I just added to your views, because I wanted to know what kind of hubs could get that many views, with so few of them, in such a short time. Well I got my answer, "well written, informative, things people really want to know," not all that personal stuff I write about. Now I have to go and start writing about things people really search for. Because I only have so many followers, and friends, now I got to reach out to the world. Thanks so much Cagsil, for the "unintended" education. LOL!
Hey Fastfreta, don't let my views misguide you. Remember my OP said that I had 681,000 slideshow views which come from my Celebrity hubs. I get more traffic from those hubs than I do with my written hubs.
It's never over!!! I'm a little over 800,000 views. I guess if I had stayed active I might have already hit a Million but I haven't written a single hub since March, and I have actually moved over 50 hubs to my other blogs.
Let me put it another way: to catch up to you (based on number of hubs and the time here difference) I would need
5,000 views (your views per hub) times 330 (my hubs) less my current views (81,000) or 1,570,000 views over the next six months (our age difference here).. and if you think THAT is going to happen to me, I have a wonderful investment opportunity I'd like to discuss with you!
Great job Cags! I have enjoyed reading your hubs, even though I find that I haven't commented on as many as I would like. I was feeling pretty lucky that I hit 10,000 not to long ago. That is awesome that you have managed to hit 500,000. Congrats!
You made it, Cags! I would have reached the 500,000 mark several months ago if Google hadn't suddenly sandboxed me! My little 2 day spike got my hopes up but they were short lived! Glad for you, though!
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...
My hub about gay themed movies has surpassed 90,000 views. The traffic on my other hubs is climbing as well. I actually earned more money this month then I did in 6 last year.Help me get my hub to 100,000 views. That...
First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I...
I just reached 100,000 views on 35 Hubs. (I only had 2 beginning in May of this year.) So, you can get great traffic from Google on HubPages! I'm happy about the traffic, but I wish the CPM were higher.
A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day...
