I am experiencing record low traffic and earnings today as seen in my HP account. This all started with Panda 3.4 update and my traffic is going down and down. Any help for improving traffic and earnings will be highly appreciated.
No I don't think so. From low I mean very very low. Can you imagine that my account with 800 plus hubs were generating up to 15000 plus daily views but right now I am only generating 7000 views so that's half of what I was getting two to three months back and the major decrease in traffic happened with Panda 3.4 google's search algorithm update.
As a serial plunger, I feel your pain Soni, but I doubt you'll get a straight answer. There's been quite a few site changes that maybe affecting everyone, but to be honest I've given up trying to work it out.
Thank God for that It was about 80% for me - so all these reasons + a weekend hmm that explains the 50% fall from the US but overall my traffic is constant as HP views from 0 almost everyday jumped up to about 100 today (small numbers but my hubs haven't aged yet - they're slowly moving up)
While it is a given that views do go through seasonal swings, it does not account for the major shifts in traffic. With just 48 hubs I was consistently averaging 400 views a day until the 2nd week of March when traffic dove to 12 views overnight and has stayed there since. I have no doubts that the google refresh had a major impact and knocked virtually all of my page 1 rankings to the cellar. Before the crash, 95% of my traffic was organic google traffic. Since then I am getting only 2-3 google visitors a day. The sad part is that my hubs are much better info and quality than what's ranking now. The only way to navigate all of the search engine flux with any assurance of getting views is not necessarily quality, but sheer volume.
Even the long time writers here that I talk to have experienced dramatic drops in a short time and the only reprieve is that fact that they have a large volume of hubs that allow them to retain views that will still pull in some profit.
I do believe quality is important, but unless you know for sure what the big G thinks is quality, you will always face the risk of losing what you have built if you don't have enough quantity to sustain it.
Am I the only one who's traffic is still super low? I had hopes because it slowly was crawling up about 10 views per day since Sunday, but now today it dropped by 15 views a day and is almost as bad as the first day I noticed. My earnings are about 1/4 what they usually are per day. I'm just praying its just the holidays and this week and that next week it will all be better again.
Web traffic in the spring and summer are on the whole lower than fall and winter due to people putting more energy into outdoor activities. The drop in web stats matches the drop in tv viewership every year starting with the shift from daylight savings time in the spring, as tracked by the Nielsen ratings.
Anyone with long-term stats should be able to look back at their data and see a similar annual trend.
Although my traffic was devastated by the switch to subs Aug. 10th, it has been steadily increasing as if I started all over again. It's now back where it was roughly 2 years ago. She go up, she go down!
I think I've been strucketh! Id like to think it's just the Easter holidays or the nice weather, but my views were higher than usual a week ago, and literally overnight dropped by 2/3. I don't think my views have been this low since I first joined hubpages : x As long as there is hope of recovery I'll keep crossing my fingers
Don't hold your breath! I've had my fingers crossed since Aug. 10th when I lost 3/4 of my traffic overnight. Other than my fingers hurting more than normal, nothing has changed very much. Success is a temporary thing for some of us here.
I am so glad I found this forum. I have experienced the a similar abrupt and dramatic drop in traffic, It seemed as if I had suddenly been erased from google, and like others on this forum I noticed that much of what is now in high google ranking is not great content in comparison. As a newer hubber I had been searching for information, and racking my brain to try and make sense of what has happened. Looking over this forum I think maybe I have not done anything wrong it really may be a seasonal, or SEO change that has caused the problem. I think I will just hold on tight, I have been getting small blips that I am back on the map, but my stable rising traffic is far from restored at this point.
Many people have asked how the new sites are performing so far. The latest Newsletter provides a general overview, but I'd also like to invite Hubbers who have had Hubs moved to discuss your experiences here. Overall,...
Possibly I overlooked the answer to this question in the forums, but I have noticed over the past three weeks at least, a significant drop of at least half of my traffic views during this period. And of course a...
Having been with Hubpages for getting on two years now, and having penned 83 Hubs, I think it's time I threw the towel in. Over that time, I conscientiously stuck to all the rules and guidelines, and was rewarded by...
Since I migrated here from Squidoo two months ago, I've seen a steady stream of threads in this forum, complaining about lost page views. There are a lot of theories about why it's happening, and how much it's...
My traffic just dropped by about 33% similar to like on weekends. I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this. Some of my hubs that normally give me 100+ views during the week have dropped to way below 100 like...
