From an average of 200 page views per day a few months ago, my views are now down to almost nothing! Why is this happening?
sort by best latest
I have no intention of flogging a dead horse, but the question is when is is truly dead?
I agree Marcy. I have seen fluctuating views but my income overtime has increased ten fold. Not making double zero's yet but I see results when I create positive hubs. Most of my views are from google so I don't think they are the problem.
My traffic for the past 9 months has been like a roller coaster, we truly have no control over our traffic, especially if most of it comes from Google, like mine :(
The stats for HP on Quantcast.com are 4 days old but us expanded over a three year period seem to show a long term drop in traffic. Sometimes you can see why views fluctuate but normally it seems random resulting from a fickle public.
HubPages has lost about 33% of their writers over the past year, and more are deleting their accounts each week and removing their Hubs. Check out the discussions on this topic. HP better do somethng soon, or this ship may sink.
"There are some issues with traffic data collection over the last 10-12 hours, causing hub traffic statistics to be under reported during that time. A fix has been deployed, and we expect the data to normalize soon."
I checked Quantcast.com, and the stats for HubPages aren't as bad as I expected them to be. They peaked in late 2010, and have been all over the place since then. Generally down for 2012, but rebounding lately.
Check your account. It is explained, as cfin has cited.
I have been getting more red arrows recently than before the drop in traffic. But still an overall drop in traffic and earnings. Also HP seem to be going crazy idling hubs.
This is the first time I have been hit like this and just as In was starting to make some decent money.
HubPages is having problem with the Hub viewing stats. See the message they posted on the Stats page.
I notice when I open "my account" the layout is somewhat screwed.
They don't know either, it is a complex interaction and there is the reaction of the public (remember them?) to factor in.
Come on, do you really believe all these excellent writers who have been experiencing this dilemma have not been writing quality content? Like I say, there is certainly a lot of guessing going on here, but some are more extreme than others!
Newbie's words count and yours make so much sense.
Up to a point I agree with you but my point is that if traffic falls suddenly it is unrelated to the quality of the work, once you have eliminated things like spelling errors. I have been tweaking hubs since this started to no effect.
