This past week I saw a dramatic drop in traffic to my hubs. A majority of my hubs traffic comes from searches. Analytics reports roughly 90% is search and Hubpages traffic sources is about the same. What could the big drop be caused from, I did nothing different than any other week. Any help would be great! Thanks
The big 'G' has been tinkering with search results and algo's along with HP making their recent 'Idle' hubs algo which de-indexes hubs from showing in search, altogether which isn't good for any of us over all but that's jmo
I do believeths that we will have to wait till final results are in, and then prepare for another 'tweak' to correct this tweak joys of the surf I guess?
My traffic went down about 25% for most of the week and took a sudden upwards turn this morning. I don't know that it means anything at the moment.
I'm a little more concerned about the drop in HPAds earnings not commiserate to the change in traffic...
I thought I was the only one who have been experiencing a decline in my already meager, traffic coming from Google. I do know that Google has a way of dropping sudden bombs! I am just hoping this is not a result of one of their house cleaning tactics!

Has anyone experienced a recent drop in views? I was enjoying 100-150 views a day until just a couple of weeks ago. Now it's more like 30-50. I changed my profile to include links to groups instead of favorite hubs but I find it hard to believe that that would be it. Suggestions? Ideas? Thanks.

What day of the week does traffic to your hubs drop?I watch my traffic daily, multiple times a day. I always notice my traffic drop starting Friday, then pick back up on Monday. I always thought it would climb over the weekend. Is it the same for you? Or do you see certain...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

Traffic down by more than 50% in last two days. Could this be due to HP maintenance or is it another Google slap?Just when my Sweetpacks hub has been showing great signs of life things are reversing, and I see no major announcement. Did the recent HP maintenance affect traffic?

I need reassuring.Up until a few months back I understand, maybe wrongly, HP pages got additional boost from Google. That implies (to me) that Google wanted content farms to churn out pages so that every possible search term was covered by pages that had associated Adsense advertising.Now...
