I've read similar posts in the past but no one seemed to have a good answer. My traffic has dropped drastically .. like about two thirds less views in the last few weeks .. I've kept my hubs updated and met all the requirements yet out of the blue ... it drops. I don't get why that happens. Anyone have a clue?
sort by best latest
You too Georgie? I wish I understood HOW to follow up on technical issues like this ... I'm a writer not a google geru.
Usually, I'll go back and look for confirmation that it was an update and see what changes they'll admit to then see if I can make changes to suit that. It's been a busy couple of months, though.
How do you go back and look Georgie?
Most of the time, more tech savvy Hubbers than I will post info on them in the forums here on HP. You can actually Google "confirmed" updates (Penguin or Panda) Sometimes they're not official updates and it's harder to tell what has happened.
Thank you Georgie - I'll look into it when I am done writing today.
Just doesn't make sense to me .. The writing is quality and it is kept up to date so why does traffic suddenly drop. Hmmmm
I keep at it too Carola since I've been here for 3 years and I LOVE how hubpages works overall. the encouragement from community and help from the HP staff is the BEST.
That is a drastic drop. Maybe a lot of people were on vacation last week, with it being the Memorial Day holiday weekend ?
dj, have you found a site that equals HP's community support or template and site options yet pays better? Do share please. :)
Yes, I have, they are my own sites! I dont need community support for my own websites, I know how to manage them, I create my own site options, and Im not publishing content to the same domain as 1 million other people.
dj, thanks, I have websites from blogger & wordpress too. Just now learning to join communities in google+ Also developed a fb page to host my various writings on my sites plus I feature other authors I respect. Traffic increasing huge but no
Sounds to me like you have the right idea Mekenzie! Google+ is actually the driving force behind my websites, and it could very well likely be thr driving force behind yours as well.
Thanks for the affirmation dj, I am beginning to see results. :)
