When a big update took place a few months ago some writers noticed that the hub stats that were available to view on the Hubbers success profiles had disappeared. Many Hubpages writers believed that this was due to their profiles losing views and $$$$.

My traffic doubled with the changes at Google. And that's with Hub Pages cutting my list of articles in half, dumping the one's that are not viewed very often. I know how I could make money--do what I'm doing much faster!
Glad it's working for you, Billy. It worked for me too at one time. To each........
Thank you Randy and Billy. This is some hard data we can use!
Hey Randy I have experienced the same drop in traffic as you and have been moving idled hubs to another website slowly but surely. Moved over 40 so far and probably 30 more to go for now.
I don't think it is your subdomain that is ranked 475th in the world, but the whole site HubPages.com. What does Google analytics tell you about your traffic?
I agree with aa...hook yourself up Google so you can see what is going on for yourself. Just use their webmaster tools and you will be able to clearly see if the stats match up.
Some website the other day told me I make 15 cents a day on each of my blogs. What a joke! Those estimates are usually way off in favor of far higher than real earnings.
Alexa.com sucks along with all the ones that look like it; ha!
yeah but I didn't search under Hub Pages, I searched under somethgblue, so I really don't know what to make of it, on another site it listed me with over 650,000 page views and yet I only have 152,000, makes me wonder . . . .?
Hey, somethgblue, once you get your other websites and blogs set up, your stat-counters will be more accurate... StatCounter.com has always worked for me.
When you were receiving 1500 views a day what did that translate too in $$ versus 300 views a day? I am curious what kind of payout on can expect if one ever gets approved by Google AdSense.
There was a big drop around September 2011, as a result of a major Panda update (adjustment to Google's way of working). These have happened from time to time. Some, it appears, permanently lost traffic. Others, like myself, saw a temporary dip.
