I've been feeling very optimistic about hubpages, seeing fairly steady gains in views and money. But the last 2 days my growing google traffic has completely collapsed. It gives me a small taste of what hubbers who have come to expect income from it must feel when their traffic goes south. If you've stuck out a bad patch, what kept you going?

That's an encouraging story, thanks. I'm doing a couple of those write for money sites, not as much fun, but you do get paid. If this continues maybe I'll try that form.
I hesitated to fill out the form, but I'm so glad I did. I can't say for sure that's what turned my traffic around, but it's the only thing I did differently. I'll try to find the address for you.
I hope that's all it is, all my lovely google traffic had evaporated overnight.
I've found that too Jamie, most losses of traffic are temporary, so I don't worry about it so much. As the saying goes 'keep your eyes on the prize' keep writing quality stuff and good things will happen.
It just seems really odd that my top 8 hubs, which all were getting 100+ views a week have all seen 0 in the last 3 days.
hum, so it just keeps being 0 on all 8 hubs? Maybe there is something wrong with HP's reporting... that is what it sounds like to me, anyway. You could email them about it. @JKenny- Yep, so true :)
Thanks for the positive thoughts.
OH MY GOODNESS! How do you keep up with 3 websites, 8 blogs, social networks, writing sites???? I have HP and 3 blogs and I am always falling behind, on the blogs anyway. Out of curiosity? How often do you update your blogs?
Jamie, I don't update them often enough. First three in importance to me are HubPages, Squidoo, and Zazzle. I try to update my five Tumbler blogs at least twice a week. I try to update the other blogs at least once every two weeks.
Sure, hubs are not the most important thing.
Thanks for the positive thoughts. It's not that it was a lot of money or anything. It just made me really happy seeing those steadily rising views. It really does feel like I've been slapped.
It's not like it was a lot anyway, but still it takes the wind out of my sails.
While I answered this my hubscore was down to 86 and now it has bounced to 89. I've been making comments and answering questions. I did rehab a couple of hubs which have made a bounce as well. I used to wig out as well - just makes you nuts.
