For about 2 weeks now I have been seeing a huge decrease in traffic. I'm not sure of the cause because I've checked and a lot of my hubs still are ranking well with Google but it seems that people just stopped coming. Is anyone else having this problem?
I'm sorry about that, LisaMarie724!!
There have been a couple reporting downswings in traffic, but many are also reporting upswings. On the whole, we're seeing something of an uptick: https://www.quantcast.com/hubpages.com
Hopefully your traffic will bounce back soon! I'd try not to focus too much on the short term changes.
Yes, I've seen several posts on this. I'm definitely seeing a huge dip.
I'm worried because my traffic has been up and down for the last 2 weeks and has yet to recover. Not sure what to do.
Well It does happen to my hubs too, may be they are not evergreen hubs, I use title tuner to revive them from time to time or just add in some more media.. and anyways you are more talented than me to get it going back again So goodluck Lisa , hope your traffic is back up soon
Google rolled out a Panda update two weeks ago, so it's possible your traffic has been adversely affected by that.
I noticed the same for one of my hubs. I did some research and found that it had dropped completely off the map on Google search. It was on page three for specific Google search keywords and steadily moving up, and suddenly it's not even in the first 100. I was unaware of the Panda update, but now I'm thinking that was the culprit.
Mine was climbing nicely before the latesr Panda, then had a good surge right afterward, and is really sinking now. Meanwhile, I found another bunch of copied hubs - including from someone who appears to have an account here as well as on Squidoo (I flagged & sent a message to the mods). That person stole one of mine and a great recipe from another Hubber. I've spent many hours filing DMCAs, arguing with (and threatening) Tumblr to get rid of 13 copied instances on their site. Then I found a site where someone from Australia had SOLD one of my hubs to the site owner (who kindly removed it, and was equally upset over it).
Meanwhile, the huge drop in traffic to my best few hubs, from earlier this year, still hasn't recovered yet. So the recent drop is not welcome, and I don't know whether to blame Son of Panda or the stolen hubs. Sorry for unloading.
I have been doing fairly well (by my standards at least) and have been seeing steady increases in both traffic and earnings. This month has a whole has been my best month ever in terms of both traffic and earnings. So as far as I am concerned there seems to be reason for being optimistic. Of course in the changing Google landscape, it can change anytime. I am sorry to hear about your decrease LisaMarie.
My traffic seems to be going back up a bit today so I'm hoping that soon all will be back to normal.
Suzie - have you checked for stolen content? I have had traffic drops this week, but last week I had a healthy increase. Then I found several hubs had been stolen very recently. Still working on getting all of that settled.
