I know this whole game with Google is getting tiresome. There is no security writing.
that might be part of it Barbara Kay, my class had a discussion about the privacy issues of google. It seemed for many in the class that its just too much to deal with anymore and they are using other search engines...
Are there any articles that you haven't written because you thought that although you would really enjoy putting them together, that they wouldn't get you any traffic? Well why not write them now and just enjoy the process? You won't be expecting traffic, so you won't be disappointed, and you will be really enjoying your writing?
I hope that your traffic slump is very temporary Stacie, and it's always hard to lose the earnings, especially if it is money that is needed rather than for extras. I was plunged along with Randy, Izzy and others back in August and have spent a lot of time make changing changes, removing hubs etc etc et to no avail, the worst thing being there is no sure-fire way to improve things, you just have to wait it out.
So I have had a long hard look about what I really set out to do - which is write, so am now only writing about things that really interest me and concentrating more on fiction - my book is nearly finished! It's hard because I really need the income to return, but for me its better than wasting my time and energy on being negative about it, which I did for a while. I really believe that multiple income streams are the way of the future, so that when one slumps for a time, there is another one doing really well.
But its different strokes for different folks, and we all need to find our own way forward.
Looking forward to you updating us with the news of the highest traffic that you have ever had!
I had a look at your pages and all the ones I checked seem to be sandboxed. I couldn't find one coming up in the normal way in Google search.
Its a miserable experience- my second account was hit in the first Panda. That account never recovered but plenty of other accounts have, so there is always hope.
It is worth unpublishing any really poor performers (pages that never got traffic) and waiting a few weeks. It is also worth cutting Amazon and Ebay capsules. The learning center page on sudden traffic loss has useful advice.
Well, my traffic certainly isn't good. I am not sure whether it is stable, or gradually going down, as a gradual decline from Monday to Saturday can fit with a weekly cycle. I will have a better idea in a couple of days and I can see what highs (or lows) it reaches on Sunday and Monday.
I can say for certain though that there is no dramatic upward trend! ;-)
I see signs that Traffic is Starting To Come Back After the Latest Panda? It is hard to confirm since HubPages is not providing traffic stats during their changeover to a new data provider. Has anyone else...
Everyone I know here seems to have their Google traffic back. I don't know about Randy, he hasn't posted recently.I am taking a long hard look at my writing, and I guess it falls at every hurdle, somehow.Yet when I...
I don't get involved much in the forums, but I have been following with interest the ground-hog day discussions about the latest Panda update at Google.I think we'll find that, after a brief period in which everything...
About 1-2 yrs ago,I heard many hubpage writers talk about how the "Google panda thing", interfered with the ir income on HP.Is that still going on, and what have people done to help themselves?My earnings are...
