Has anyone experienced a recent drop in views? I was enjoying 100-150 views a day until just a couple of weeks ago. Now it's more like 30-50. I changed my profile to include links to groups instead of favorite hubs but I find it hard to believe that that would be it. Suggestions? Ideas? Thanks.
Many are reporting the same experience, Sinea. It seems HP is suffering from Google's whims once more. I hope the Big G self destructs and loses much of their influence on the net. Until then, we are at their mercy!
Nothing wrong with rehashing the issue, Sinea Pies. You have quite a few more comments here on your post than I had on mine and we all benefit from the sharing of the information. Hope you are getting better! The flu is a nasty thing for sure!
My blogger blogs are doing just fine. My sites are doing fine. It is only HP. Having said that, I saw a big drop over the weekend taking me back to levels not seen since I was a new user, but they have stabilised back to where they were really.
Then again, my account has been sandboxed for 7 months, so you probably can't compare.
My blogger blog is doing well. Growing traffic and many G referrals as well as Stumbleupon. I've been Stumbling both HUBS and blog posts. The blog posts are exponentially getting more from StumbleUpon than the Hubs are. Now what does THAT mean?
I don't have any Wordpress experience but I do know that some of my Blogger traffic is that I am very social with other bloggers. We link to each others sites through blog hops and comment. But, like I said, my biggest traffic lately has been Google and Stumbleupon, too.
Dale, thank you so much. Got spammed a short while ago so I've been timid about putting the email address on the profile (HP took care of the spammer very quickly. Great job HP Central!). I will head on over and fix that link! Thanks for the interest.
Yikes, Dale! Can't find it. This is soooo funny. The way I have been getting the links is when it shows up as "some of Sinea's favorite topics are" but that is on a cycle. Right now Religion and Philosophy isn't one of them! Ha! I'll keep on the lookout for my next opportunity and fix it. Sorry.
The two I like the best are called "Why Forgive" and "Joyce Meyer the Woman and Her Words".
OK guys...do you check out your hubs on Google to see where they rank? I used to but I haven't in a while.
Back when I did, even if they didn't show up in the first few pages, my more popular ones (usually about Weight Watchers) did show up.
If I got really desperate to find them, I would enter the exact title + Sinea Pies and then they'd be there.
Today they are NOT anywhere --unless it's through StumbleUpon. This is not good. Perhaps I have linked too many of my own related hubs within them? I will gladly change that if it'll get me back on the map. Any thoughts?
Really? Phew. I guess I panicked a little. Nothing like feeling like your identity as a writer is being expunged. I had tried the Weight Watchers PointsPlus2012 --one of my most Googled--and didn't find it even on page 10 and yet Squiddo articles and Ehow were showing up on early pages!. How can that happen? So then I used the exact title + my name and still nothing.
Thank you SO much for checking those out. That makes me feel a little better. TIME TO CALM DOWN.
There was an article shared by a fellow hubber earlier today that talked about links and the new Panda... I didn't have time while I was at work to read it closely...but I am going to now.
What I am finding out is it is not so much the links in an article that Panda hits, but "broken" links. That is what is apparently pulling down some blogs from my research. I would presume that is why HP has the broken link warning for us, so we can correct any issues we may have with that.
I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned...
In another forum topic thread someone mentioned Niome as a blogging site. I quickly created two posts for the site--both under 300 words. One was new content and one was a rehash of a hub I did. I wanted to link...
This past week I saw a dramatic drop in traffic to my hubs. A majority of my hubs traffic comes from searches. Analytics reports roughly 90% is search and Hubpages traffic sources is about the same. What could the big...
I just noticed five of my hubs getting unfeatured due to traffic. I was expecting this for some time now since I never really got a lot of traffic in the first place. I've joined HubPages less than a year...
