What on Earth is going on??


I have just signed in to Hubpages to find out that my 2,000+ page views per 24hrs have diminished to virtually nothing! One of my hubs which has been receiving several hundred page views per day ever since it was published is suddenly receiving no traffic whatsoever! In addition, my 2nd most successful hub (on a completely different topic) has stopped receiving traffic too, despite being extremely popular for the last 2 years! In addition, I Googled 'Hubpages' to be presented with a sponsored ad at the top of the page offering to let me create and publish a hub-page for $35!

    Same thing happened to me.

    HP still brings in more than anywhere else but is rapidly going down hill in terms of income and traffic. I Will review again in the new year.

    C'mon Clint how do you go from 1,500 a day to 150, it is ridiculous, beyond absurd. My best Hub averaged 75 page views for 10 months straight then just drops to five, hello anybody home?

    It does feel rather degrading. That site offering hub publishing at $35 each is obviously a guaranteed scam yet Google seem insistent on advertising it to us. Google are trying to get us ripped off!

    I did experience a drop like everyone else but this was resolved once Hubpages made their changes and my traffic then tripled (as did my earnings)... until today!

    If it had not been happening for some months now I would agree with you.

    I am not however ready to keep putting effort in that brings ever decreasing reward.

    Thanks for commenting, it's basically all down to a glitch. All of my hubs are still featured, many of them still come up as the first result in Google searches, etc. Was just a glitch with HP analytics not showing correct figures.

    The hubs in question are still coming up as the 1st result in Google searches. In addition, the 2 hubs I'm referring to are both based on some of the most popular topics on the internet. The hubs are still featured. Just makes no sense!
