Have Your Earnings Gone Down In The Last Year?


This is geared more toward those who have been on HP for year/s and therefore notice long term trends, but anyone can answer for sure! I've noticed in the past year that my traffic numbers have pretty much stayed the same as previous years, but I'm now earning about 1/4 of the money I used to. Has anyone else noticed this? I personally will no longer write articles on here other than to direct traffic to my other sites. What about you?

    Yeah, I tried updating thinking that was the problem, but it didn't do anything. I'm not sure why earnings are decreasing as traffic stays the same, but it's not good!

    Yeah, I'm with you on that, in as many years. Hmm I think HP is on its way out, also a resounding YES. Time to bail!

    Yeah that was an initial hit but I recovered from it back up to my normal earnings. Then 2015 came along and my earnings decreased dramatically as my traffic stayed pretty much the same!

    Yeah, I hear ya! I used to be able to basically pay half my rent every month via HP, and now it's like not even good pocket money. It seems to be a trend that companies get to a certain size and go downhill Fast. This may be the death knell of HP..
