My views have more than tripled over night....I dont know why but I'll take it!
That's fantastic, Stacie L! Good for you!
I am still not seeing the traffic I was seeing there for awhile, hoping mine starts flowing again.
I'm so happy to hear some good news (finally), about rising traffic.
Do you think that's the Xmas surge beginning? I'm still waiting, my hits have gone sluggish and earnings have slowed down this month so far.
I've also seen a jump in traffic of almost a third. That happened yesterday. I had unpublished all of my zzz hubs a few weeks ago, then edited the ones I was interested in keeping and published them again.
Things stayed the same for a while, then this big jump happened. I think it coincided with all of my hubs having the new Featured icon on them. I guess that we're going from having a dot to having the Featured icon for published hubs that are getting views. So all of my hubs are either featured, pending or not published. I think we don't have the zzz anymore? It's not on the legend for the statistics page.
Are all of your active hubs featured? If so, whatever programming change HP made when they were making that change is probably what has helped. If that's true, I hope they keep going in that direction.
A Hub is either Featured or it's Idled. So if there's no Feature icon showing, it's idled.
All that has happened is that they decided the "idle" tag was too negative. So now they're highlighting the Hubs that are still visible (Featured), instead of warning you about the ones that are invisible (Idled).
I unpublished all my Idle Hubs a few weeks ago too. My traffic is unchanged.
i have seen some of my traffic come back the last couple of days too. I am glad things are starting to look up for all of us.
Mine has increased too. Seems that changes brought about by HP are really working.
That's wonderful news, Stacie L. I wish I could say the same for mine. My traffic has never recovered from the Penguin slap in April. Here's to more traffic your way... cheers!
I have been following this forum and I happy to see traffic is back up. Can't wait to read more of your hubs.
Send some traffic my way. LOL Mine is just a tiny bit down.
That's awesome. I was holding steady for a while--a little down--but now the bottom has fallen out. My views are half the normal traffic. That's depressing. I don't remember when I've seen them so low.
So I've heard, Judi Bee.. I wonder why it's so different for everyone. Mine was good in September and October when others were complaining about theirs dropping. Now it is bad for some people and not others. I wonder why. :-(
Congrats to you Stacie, that's excellent news for you. I was about to post a similar forum with a question. I have the "H" on all 23 of my hubs. However, I have not seen a jump in traffic. My traffic continues to rise very slowly but nothing significant. Im not sure if changes are based on traffic or will create more traffic. Are your hubs SEO? Mine are not which I think is more of the issue of why I dont get droves of traffiic. Also, may be topic interest.
Congradulations to all whose Hubs are performing well. I'm glad your Hub income is increasing.
Every time there's a Panda update, some people will see a positive effect, and some people will see a negative effect. That's normal.
I have seen a couple of my higher performing hubs drop within the SERPS affecting my traffic but other hubs have climbed position making up for the traffic that I have lost. This last Panda update seems to have changed quite a few things around in my niches.

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

Many good quality pages are Idled (become unfeatured) via ‘Analysis of the how engaged readers are with a Hub over an extended period of time’ – essentially because they get low traffic.It appears that this process was initiated to reduce the number of ‘low quality’ pages on the site. The...

It appears that there has been a recent change on my profile page. Underneath the number of published hubs, there is a number of featured hubs. I do not want this to be shown. My ratio of featured hubs is less than 50% of the number of published hubs. My understanding of why...

I have been at HP for 11 months with very few publishing problems. This past week, I've had THREE of my new hubs idled. Two of them were product reviews for the contest, one was political in nature. When the first one was idled, I contacted HP and basically was given no info...

I'm not asking about why hubs get featured or un-featured. I kind of know that.The issue is: I just did a category search in my hubs, and found that, out of 292 published hubs, 149 are unfeatured due to low traffic! That's a lot! Over half my articles! I don't have the time...

Earlier today, all my hubs contained the "H" icon in the featured column, which means featured. Now two of my hubs have no icon at all, that space is completely empty. Does anyone know why?
