Over the last couple of weeks I have experienced a 70% drop in pageviews. Most of the loss was from fellow hubbers not viewing...am I not showering enough? Bad breath? Offensive behavior? haha. I'm just wondering if anyone else has seen this as well.

Cam, I read your Hub "Three Ways to Save Money on Gas/Gasoline" . Good tips. Categorizing Hubs to increase viewers, see instructions in: https://hubpages.com/community/Using-a-Hub-Milesto...
All of my hubs are grouped and cross linked. I removed about twenty-five hubs that weren't doing well and were on a topic I wanted to leave off HP. Some of the reduction in traffic is due to that choice. I do have a few orphan hubs.
A lot of Hubbers have left HubPages over the past year. I mean A LOT, close to 100K or over 40% of their prior peak of Hubbers. The unFeatured change has a lot to do with it, as do other onerous changes, such as no more RSS. Time to reconsider HP?
All of my hubs are featured. I've been consistent at commenting on hubs and interacting on forums and questions. My non HP traffic may be down a little. I just don't get it. I'm not concerned about money because fiction doesn't seem to earn much.
I feel like I dropped off the planet. I have never had a huge traffic flow, but I dropped from a range of 100-200 per day to 30-50, and those are total traffic figures.
I finally read your hub last night on the subject of the losses HP is experiencing. It is disturbing. You are right too, that some of my decline may be that some I am following and who follow me, simply are gone.
Gary, I've always appreciated our camaraderie here. The similarities in background/viewpoint make me appreciate what we are able to experience here as hubbers. No worries about not reading my fiction and thanks for the thumbs up when you do visit.
I dropped about twenty-five of my poorest performing hubs. Everything is grouped and cross linked. My main "problem" is that fiction starts off with lots of pageviews but tapers off. I've done a lot of hub maintenance, but not enough I guess.
