Zero Traffic

    I have Zero hub views. I am hoping that is a problem with reporting or something. But, since valentines day I have zero hub views minus two that I viewed myself and one that came from Bing. But I can't find my hubs on Google either so I don't know what is up? Any hints would be nice?

      You don't write enough hubs, participate in enough activities. You also need to tweet or facebook your new articles to your audiences.

      Who cares if your audience is only friends and family right now? Work to build new online audience and then they will get some relief! ha ha!

        Seems to me OP is describing a drop in traffic from previous traffic level to essentially nothing.  AND hubs are now being ignored by Google.  This is very different from never having developed a following or traffic.  Sounds like situation described by Izzy and others.

          I see. So something may have caused the hub to drop from Google. That is scary. But I'm used to zero views...

          You are correct. As someone posted here I don't have huge numbers but enough to notice that I have not had one google view since valentines day. When prior to that day things were going along pretty well. Thank you all for your help in advance.

            This is what happens when google decides to place you in the sanbox.  It matters little if you have thousands of organic links or not.  Almost all google traffic will disappear literally overnight.  Hopefully, you are not in here with us.  smile

                My sandbox vacation began just over six months ago.  I've lost thousands of dollars since then and there's no end in sight.  Sorry to be so glum about it, but there it is!  smile

      I just commented on your Sunbrella. See, if you see one view.

        Yes I see your view as coming from hubpages and also a couple views from yahoo search but all of google is dead. Hopefully the sandbox doesn't last as long as six months like Randy's.

      really? that's a wonder indeed. I've checked your profile and you have good hubs. Even i am new here on HP so far, I am receiving google traffic everyday. I am curious about google's sandbox, gonna research on it.

    There are tons of threads on this topic ever since the big plug last Feb, and lots of threads in the last few weeks with various hubbers reporting ups and downs, and possible sandbox penalties.
