After a major drop in traffic last week, where I'm now only getting 5 or less views from google, I'm wondering if I have been sandboxed... And if so is it because my writings on hubpages are too diverse? I have topics from weather to gardening, television, movies and recipes. If my hubs are too diverse would choosing a topic and adding more of them help even with keeping the hubs I've already published? Thanks in advance!
My hub views dropped overall for a few days like everyone else's, but since then they have picked up again. I have had more views from Google than from hubpages since about the first month of publishing. Usually 3 Google views to 1 hubpages view, and that doesn't include the Google views from outside the states. My collection of hubs is pretty diverse, check them out and see for yourself.
I have a career blog that is on first page on Google. I don't see no more traffic on that blog than I get here.
I also have a blog on all kinds of topics it gets about the same amount of visitors but I get far better Google earnings.
Finding a good niche is hard to do. What I recommend is look at your account and see what articles are preforming the best.
Lets say you have an article on "How to Fix a Dryer" and you are getting alot of traffic.
Write another article on "How to Fix a Dryer belt" you see what I am saying then link them together.
Good advice, this is what I have been doing for my whole time here. I cannot complain, well I could but no one would care.
Yeah I think that's whatim going to start working on thanks tamron
They say do not put all your eggs in the same basket. Even if Google hated Hubpages I still get good traffic by linking my content from different sites.
You wouldn't believe it but I get good traffic from the The Reviewer site. I don't know why because to me the site looks tacky.
I will have to check out the site because I have not posted on it for a long while but I still get earnings and traffic. Let me find it I will give you the link.
The name of the site I was referring to is"BestReviewer.com" Like I said I don't know why I still earn from that site but I do. I have not posted there in a long time but since I have some hubs and articles I can publish on there I think I will.
I didn't post there for a long time because there was an annoying ad on the site it even appeared when you tried to publish your top.
I complained but nothing was done. So I quit! I noticed now the ad is not there So I will publish some more tops.
I have a pretty wide array of topics as well, and have noticed a large drop in traffic, but things have recently picked up due to a hub I read yesterday on sharing. I'm still not sure how to increase my rank with google however. Anyone have any ideas? lol

If your Page Rank is 3 you're off to a great start. Especially since you have only been writing for hubpages for 6 months.
I don't know what mine is for hubpages but my career blog had a PR of a 3 its probably a 1 now because I haven't posted for about 3 months.
To get your PR higher you must post and update your domain on a regular bases which Is hard for me to do right now.
People tend to link to you more often if you have a pr of a 2 and higher.
Here's the link to find out your page rank:
I checked my rank yesterday and it was a 2. I wonder, does it vary daily? and how often should you update your hubs to keep them "fresh" in google's eyes? Once a week? Once a month? Google is so fickle!

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with...

This has got to be some sort of joke. This site is not an easy place to make a fast buck. I knew that when I started. I then did the apprenticeship. It hasn't done me one iota of good. I have written well over 70 hubs,...

When it was first introduced I was annoyed by it but made an effort to tweak my hubs to get them out of Idle status. Now, a whole load have got zzs against them again and many of them are hubs that at one point were...
