I'm starting to throw things at the walls... Figuratively speaking. For now...
It might just be because of the time of year, PDS.
You're right. But I'm still tired of the work:reward ratio...
I know it's tough. To be honest though until very recently I didn't make that much effort when it came to internet writing, I was put off by what has happened to other people here. But now, I want to make a go of it on various sites with the writing and designs.
Maybe you could just write a couple of articles on other sites to use as back links for articles that you have here? If things are not great here for you at the moment, perhaps just spreading your wings a little may prove a bit more profitable, until things at HP level out.
I, paradigmsearch, will have a dozen different domains going by the end of 2013.
No rant sh@t. Any moron can do one a month. All I have to do is get my act together.
Good for you, and I know you'll get your act together. If you're anything like me then you have to get in that head space where you are absolutely determined. And it'll be worth it.
I have learned the hard way not to put all the eggs in one basket. All the content mills are having big trouble. One site that was paying six figures for real journalism has clipped and nipped until all the top writers fled. Another site has done the same.
It's great to be writing freely again and getting views too.
Agree with you. I am considering creating my own website in the future. However, am doing well on HubPages.
The majority of my work is offline writing for private clients and a bit of work for my local university. Although I do write some really short articles for an online client who pays well. I just don't want to do that kind of work anymore so I'm trying to become established in the online world, and the one thing that I have learnt is to spread yourself around a bit. As you say, all eggs in one basket is not the best business model.
Wanna do a website for me? I am so bad when it comes to that. Hell, I can't even set up a blog. Must be all my grey hairs now.
I could help you set up a blog, Sarra, but not a website. Pm me if you need any help with a blog.
Have you ever tried Weebly.com. I have just started to put together a couple of sites and I find Weebly really user friendly i.e. even I can use it.
Low traffic might be due to new year occasion, your traffic would bounce back, after few days, once everything returns normal.
What I usually do is ask friends to just go to my links, and skim and rate it. Or you can have those who follow you to look at your links at least once a day. It usually work. To bad for me I don't go facebook anymore, so I won't get any views, and I am still new.
paradigmsearch, things are much tougher than I would have imagined in the world of online writing, but online is the future. Even Newsweek just published its last print issue.
We need to diversify and I'm trying to do that too. I can't say my little bit of traffic has fallen in the last week. It's actually grown a bit, but I'm trying to promote my hubs off of HP. But my traffic is still low, so this little uptick isn't indicative of anything.
Hollie, go for the online writing. I wish you the best of luck. I loved your African chicken recipe. I'm making it tomorrow and serving it to company. It's delicious.
I can see why your family likes this so much. It's so easy to make and absolutely delicious. I tried it the first time because I had all the ingredients on hand. Now I'm making it again.
The good news is that there are so many writing sites and new ones seem to be cropping up all the time. HP is still a great place and lot of fun, but we really need to diversify. I'm sure you'll do very well.
Blanking new low. Seriously... Blank. Blank. And blank.

How do you feel?

You know the way traffic seems to ramp up slowly after a beneficial update? I don't understand the reason, I would have thought there should be a sudden step increase. Well does the same happen after a detrimental update? Personally for me there seems to be a steady weekly 10% drop and it's not...

Aside from sharing my article links on Facebook, what are some tried and true ways of increasing traffic/reads to our articles? I'm new; 3 weeks in, have 10 published and featured articles so far. I'm trying to figure out what the number on my profile photo means exactly. I know...

Does having many hubs count much to gaining more income in HP? I wonder how some hubbers have less than 50 hubs yet are deriving a good amount of revenue from good traffic numbers, while other hubbers have hundreds of articles and are just doing so-so income. I've noticed that updating and...

My traffic is way down this year, and even worse than two years ago. I'm feeling a little uneasy about the whole Maven takeover thing and am wondering if I should even bother putting my time and effort into writing more articles. Gut instinct tells me HP days are numbered. I really hope I'm wrong.

I know, I know, these kind of generic questions are asked too often. Believe me, I tried to look for an answer before posting it in here, but couldn't find one.So here it goes - Is there any one who is making more than $200 here? How much time did it take you to get there? Thank you in advance for...
