Even with redirects for Squidoo why have the views gone down?
Every lens shows a huge drop off right at the month of Sept-Oct. I imagine all of us have to rebuild each article rep all over again as a new article. Is that because of the new url? or what? What happened?
There are many theories about that. One is related to Google's Panda update, another to competition between already existing hubs with newly arrived lenses among which many try to drive traffic from the same keywords. There is also less known fact about internal restructuring of HubPages with new internal flow of authority through the topics and articles.
The simple fact is writing for web is like every other business - you should be adaptive and always ready to invest time in new knowledge, in this case to write more articles, find new ways to promote them, in short: to work, work, work and then more work.
Thanks Tolovaj, I noticed the topics opened up and more categories were available and I've update the articles into more relevant topics.
I just want a very good theory of why the views dropped like a lead weight. It does coincide with the Panda Update. Can someone who has been here a few years tell me if their Hubs also dropped at that time?
I have been humming along for years with good views and a month after the transfer all the articles are stuck in a barrel of rotten apples.

Okay, I know it's not like hitting 1,000 per day! But for me, it's very good. I started on HubPages about a year and a half ago, after Examiner.com went to all pop culture stuff. I had 29 articles on there and was...
