And my earnings too!
I must have lost 90% of my Google traffic on that day - what on earth is happening? My other accounts are fine.
Not sure what happened. Your post made me go and check my stats for the 11th. All looks normal for me on views and earnings for that day.
I must have done something extremely wrong and offended the Google gods. I am working diligently to fix every possible broken link and upgrade content wherever I can.
The only thing I can think of is I answered something about revenue - I must have broken Google's confidentiality rules - oh, my. I fear I will be in the sand pit for months.
This is horrible.
Do you feel they really watch a whole profile that closely? I have Google "authorship" and I wonder if I am watched? Now I am wondering, lol. Best clean up my act!
I am not trying to make light of your situation, just trying to add a tad of humor to a pretty serious concern of yours. I know I was upset when my views just bottomed out here about six weeks to two months ago. Some have yet to recover...quite a few hubs are still going a great job of providing the balance needed, I guess, of zeros! I took down RSS feeds, tweaked here and there, had them all indexed again...now I await. Other hubs are doing fine however. I just don't truly understand all that can and will effect them. I get lost reading the 1,001 things that we need to do to a hub so we don't lose views, lol.
I am working my butt off to clean up my act and delete the RSS feeds and links at the ending and all the "extra" stuff so my hubs are clean.
I simply have too much time and pride invested in this.
I know you are not making light of this. I am hoping my thorough house cleaning is accepted by Google and soon.
I have heard people being in the sandbox for months! I am near tears but I will wipe them off and get to work.
HubPages gave me the knowledge and I know I need to do some clean up so I am being ruthless.
Thanks for taking the time - really appreciate it in these moment of darkness from Google's sight.
A lot of people have been dropping in recent times. My big fall was over 3 months ago and despite editing etc., I've not recovered.
I fell, worked hard, waited patiently and now I am even further behind.
No sense in staying here for the next couple of months. For some reason, I have been banished by Google.
I know when I am not wanted. Off to other endeavors.
Will return and try again in 3-6 months.
I will miss you all.
Thank you all for your assistance. I have decided to move all my fitness and exercise hubs so that I can better promote those 59 related articles.
Allot of work but I am determined and will remain diligent.
This is all a learning curve but I am here for the long term so I will cope through this trauma.
Thank you very much for your support and knowledge.

Since things have kind of been changed up has anyone else felt the sting of low views...and longer updating times? Is this just another lull and things will pick back up or do we need to work harder to get more views in?

I have read time and time again that earnings increase with a snowball effect after 3,4,5,6+ months on here. I sort of get that, but after taking my own experiences into consideration, I'm left with a few questions.I've read folks comments such as "it takes 6 month's for google to index and...

I am puzzled because even when my traffic gets a bit better (low for some, but still good for me right now), my CTR rate for Google is almost always nothing. I get something from Google about once a month, if that, with 58 hubs written. Does anyone else find the CTR quite poor for hubpages, or is...

Last month my click through ratio was <snipped>, but now this month it has dramatically reduced to <snipped>. This is horrible and I have the same amount of traffic similar anyway as last month. It looks as though I will have to produce 1000 hubs if my ctr is going to crap...
