      There was a Google refresh in the last couple of days, Matt Cutts tweeted we should expect some flux. Hopefully (?) it will only be temporary while the new also is tweeked. I'm tanking, too.

        Mine is going, going, gone.. Could someone explain what exactly happens when google does a "refresh" ? Does it happen often (seems to) and is it temporary or does it have lasting effects?

          Approximately every month. They tweek their algo's and that affects some people negatively and others positively. Sometimes the effects are temporary  but there are some people who haven't recovered.

          Best thing to do is to start a new sub domain. That way, you can still receive income on other accounts if your main account is affected.

            I have never experienced anything quite like this. My traffic is cut by more than half. ANd the sad thing is that my traffic started doing really well just a few days back! Can't believe this is happening!

              All of my hubs have been buried in the SERPS (have you checked your position in the SERPS?) It may be temporary, as we've been warned to expect fluctuations. My traffic soared the day before it tanked, and others are reporting that their traffic is soaring- so we'll have just have to wait and see where this roller coaster is going to take us, I guess.

                How do you check your position in the SERPS?

                  Well, I usually type into google the keywords for a particular hub and see where I rank on the pages. However, just yesterday I looked at the keywords in my stats for each particular hub, then clicked on each one which takes you to G's results, only, my hub had disappeared from the pages. Normally, when you do this you will see where you were in the SERPS for the keywords the searcher has used, it will show you if the results were found on page 1, 2,3.. etc.

    My traffic is at an all time low hmm I remember when I used to get over 5k or 10k views daily....

    Not sure how much is due to Google Algs, however, I know some of it is because some hubs should be ranking higher.

    Egads, David 470!  At least you know the THRILL of getting over 5-10k views daily!  If I ever had traffic like that, I would not know what to do with myself.  Throw a party?  LOL!  This last round, my traffic spiked, but it is now down to what it used to be.  It has never completely dumped, but who knows?  That can happen, too!

    Cherish the moment, I say!

    My Google traffic is also dropping.  But, I'm getting more and more traffic from Bing and Yahoo.  So, the drop in my overall traffic is not too bad right now.  But, the blue arrows in my stats have doubled since noon.  My traffic never recovered after the Penguin, when I lost 65% of my views.  Now, it looks like the Panda is killing whatever google traffic is left. (sigh)

    My traffic is down by 80%, occassionally it will look like its coming back slightly then wham, it's back down. 

    Frustrating to say the least.  Hopefully next month will be better.

    My traffic has been down for around 6 months now, and it hasn't recovered slightly. I'm down from thousands of views a day to under 100. Earnings are non-existant here. I focus elsewhere now, and even those earnings are down. Seems the bubble has burst folks.
