I have noticed reduced page views of my hubs in the last six days or so. The recent panda reviews seem to worry me that Google is working on something new again. Am I the only one or is it a general problem? Was forced to nose around, and the image below from Alexa shows a decreasing number of visits from search engines to HP. Any views or is there an update elsewhere in HPs?

Yes, I agree with Skarlet. It is just that time of year weddings and holidays, people are going off and vacations and doing other things. Great question though!
Didn't know about June and July thing. But must say mid June was also high for me, and then views plummeted later on.
Whats with people getting negative one's here, like is there a correct way to answer this question. Yikes!!
Good answer Skarlet.
I have noticed a marked dropoff in activity on social networking sites like Facebook this week. Everyone is outside doing things. Traffic will pick up again in the fall and winter. Now is the time to do the SEO to get ready for the searches.
Yea, US users dominate online activity and without them we are a little off beat. Hope you guys in the US are having fun time, and happy holiday.
The issue of keywords remain a puzzle to me and others out there - I think so. It is just not clear enough how many keywords are enough or not enough.
I believe clarity sinks when you publish more hubs and learning through the
Not sure why I got the negative 1 vote there, but oh well I guess there's some haters out here for sure. It's all good though high stats is high stats, and +1's or not it won't change that reality.
Yeah Amuno the keywords issue is a problem.
Good answer CloudExplorer.
I very much appreciate your input on SEO as I am still trying to figure this whole thing out.
The negative is from some crazy nut who has personal issues. Don't let it get you down.
Voted up from me. :)
Good for you John. The hub number possibly works. But am not good at spinning hub after hub. Want try that and possibly spend more time in Hubpages.
Hope not a serious issue for me and hope views get better again. Thanks for the info.
Wasn't the Google Penguin update about reducing "black hat" SEO content? I don't think people on HubPages are using black hat SEO techniques. That requires more control over the backend of a webpage/site to implement. Vacation time! Less computer
Since the April Penguin update my traffic dropped by a good 20% with no recovery yet, and I do not have 'black hat' SEO content, as far as I know.
Yes, but there was also a Panda update on June 26. Could be part of the story.
The CPM's seem normal. I have a huge range of daily CPM's from about $7 to $19 in June. So far in July, they've been about $9. A little on the low end, but I think it's because traffic is just lower,
It is re assuring to note I am not alone. Let's hope the situation improves soon.
