Can someone explain exactly what happens in simple terms and why? thanks!
sort by best latest
Hang on, I have had hubs that were getting good traffic before the September update and then a drop in traffic afterwards. So one minute the hub was good quality and the next it was not? Something funny going on here.
I agree with Alex, why are they great one minute and not the next? I get the feeling that google takes it in turn to put stuff to the top, then drop it to put good or bad quality articles there but maybe have better ads?!
I hope I don't belong to those who drags HP down. My old account is also affected but not as much compared to this one. Maybe it also has to do with a hub account's age.
That doesn't make sense either. 5 years ago when this was all up and running HP had lots of views and not taken as spammy. There were many great writers on here but when the modratrs chngd and the cmpny was sold that is when thngs took a nosedive.
Google algorithm updates the past several months also have a lot to do with it - I promise you they do. It's a Google algorithm issue and typically it resolves itself over time and traffic comes back up. Good time to revamp/update
