Should we change our hubs to make them more accessible to mobile readers? How can we make them more accessible?
There's a mobile view built-in to HubPages. When it detects that a visitor is using a mobile device, it changes how the Hub appears automatically.
Mostly it does this by ditching a goodly number of the ads, which means mobile views are going to have much lower earning potential.
We're working on improving that earnings, of course. Much of it is contingent on the tech that's out there- mobile is lagging behind laptops/desktops when it comes to advertising, or so I am told.
But are you changing your writing style at all, relache?
I feel that making your hub more accessible is by having a really good title that people might be interested in looking for and having hash tags or wods included in your summary that might lead people to your hub. Comment on other people's hubs and leave behind fan mail. Doing these two things might attract more people as well or help make your hubs more accessible to others. Best of wishes.

Just checked it on Alexa.com, and realized which (alleged) effect the Panda updates of Google has on traffic. Although I'm still happy with the traffic my Hubs have, are the foundations increasingly eroding. Are there any ideas to change this trend? http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/hubpages.com

As of this morning, when I view ANY hub, I get this popup on iPad (with the hubber's domain name): After I click "OK", the hub does actually load, but all advertising is missing. If this bug is true for all mobile web devices, that's 500,000 pageviews a day with no advertising revenue....

Hi Hubbers,We've been engaging with some outside help on helping bring more traffic to HubPages. It's going to be an iterative process where we take recommendations, test them out on the site, and adjust. The first round of changes we have been working on is the topic hierarchy. ...

So it seems that people are saying more and more of the traffic that we will be getting at hubpages will be on mobile devices. However, it seems that no ads are shown on these so if this is the case do you think earnings are going to drop as mobile internet browsing increases and if so what is the...
