A Sudden Massive Drop in traffic to one of my hubs


Hi, I wrote a Hub about 2-3 months ago which was getting pretty decent traffic (150-200 views daily), when suddenly yesterday it dropped to about 30 hits. I thought it might rise back again but it hasn't changed much. Most of the traffic came through organic search of course (google). Does anyone here can give me an idea why it just happened? I haven't really done any external backlinking of my hub, most of the links were internal (from hubpages). do you think doing some backlinking just now will improve the traffic. though I am sure it's not the problem. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    sounds to me like you might be the traffic to your hubs. It does count your own views, I didn't realise until a few days ago. Welcome to hubpages!

    well it's not the same but surely it's a similar problem, as now after dropping from 200, my hub traffic has settled down to a figure around 20-30. one of my other hubs which was getting around 30-40 hits is now getting under 10 vpd.

    thanx for your response. I ran a google search of opening sentences. even checked it on copyscape for similar content but this doesn't seem to be the problem.

    Well i wasn't hoping it to last forever (as it was about few gadgets and topics like these are destined to suffer low traffic eventually), but i wasn't expecting a sudden drop in traffic like this either.
