For those who want to share. And possibly commiserate...
HP comparing Monday-5/6 data versus Monday-5/13 data, HP is down 19.3%
HP comparing Tuesday-5/7 data versus Tuesday-5/14 data, HP is down 15.0%
PDS comparing Monday-5/6 data versus Monday-5/13 data, PDS is down 28.7%
PDS comparing Tuesday-5/7 data versus Tuesday-5/14 data, PDS is down 31.5%
HP Tuesday data is in, op updated. HP is doing one heck of a lot better than I am. I am now feeling officially picked on by Google. Back to the drawing board...
I'm contemplating a hub deletion spree...
I'm down 21% and 19% for Monday and Tuesday - I would have expected a 5-7% drop based on current trends in my account - so I'd say net 14% and 12% loss....
Are you getting the HP comparison from Google Analytics? I can do that....
But what's PDS?
Sorry to be dim, it was my turn!
PDS is me. I'll change that to my full username.
HP stats are from Quantcast. I used global unique, instead of total views, so as to omit most of the "1 million" daily R&P forum posts.
Paradigmsearch stats are indeed from Analytics.
Edit: I changed it back to PDS. My full name is too long and makes the entries messy looking.
Monday, down 22%. Tuesday, down 15%. But Sunday was down 34%.
It may be getting better, then, but lagging behind HP. I don't think the lag is particularly significant, though - I wouldn't expect google to have finished doing their thing with every subdomain on the site at the same time. More likely it's a matter of chance when a specific site (or subdomain) is brought to "normal" traffic.
Here's some stats from one of my hubs:
Number of views, excluding my own? 4!
Seriously, WTF does Google want!?!
Ah, the million $ question. Allow me to give you some tips on what they want:
All content farms disbanded.
All content to be posted on their own sites.
Nothing but G rated content anywhere
Perfect spelling and grammar, other "quality" facets to conform to their ideas.
Make lots of money
Of course the 'MAKES LOTSA MONEY' is the MOST IMPORTANT factor!
Why am I shouting you may ask? Because it makes me soooooooooo mad!!!
Well, well. The damn thing finally ticked upwards and got a red arrow.
Just looked, at GA, bit of a horror story:
HP Mon 6th -v- Mon 13th. 13th was 21% down, which is unusual as the 6th was a national holiday here (so traffic usually down)
HP Tue 7th -v- Tue 14th. 14th was 35% down.
I had a 27% drop between Mondays, but a nice rebound and only a 5.3% drop between Tuesdays.
I did publish a new hub on Monday, my first new hub in 7 months, and it went featured within 2 hours. It's indexed in Google and even has my picture associated with it in the SERPS. And, it has shot up from a 51 to an 84 hubscore. I'm sure the traffic from G+, Pinterest, and Twitter are helping with this 'rebound' but not sure how long it will last.
SIgh. I had some red arrows earlier this week (after a significant slump). Only have a few now - and I can't really get excited about 3-4 views causing an Arrow Sighting. Not when there's about a 40% difference in traffic now compared to a few weeks ago. As soon as I have the energy and motivation, I will try . . . dunno . . . tweaking? Been there; done that. Deleting some non-performers? Yep - done that before, too. Writing more hubs? Maybe.
Just like any other media, Google wants content that is beneficial to their advertisers.

I've noticed that there is at least one post claiming to have gained a significant amount of traffic this week, but for me, my traffic has dropped by 50%. One hub, which at its height was getting over 4k hits a day, is now down to 500 hits daily, and every other hub on my account has dropped...

My hub traffic tanked by 90%! Anyone else experiencing any problems. It looks like some of my hubs have been removed from the first page of google for the key terms they were related too.These were articles that were on my blog for years, so I recently did a redirect to so not to lose my rankings...

I'm experiencing a traffic drop. I believe it is because of what this thread is talking about... http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/112459 When it comes to ranking, there are just too many whims of fate... And Happy Thursday! 4:30 AM, USA, West Coast.

Well, its official, my hubs are all down about 39%. Strangely enough my profile views are up to 40%. This is very odd cause usually my profile views are never that high. Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe its just random.

Is there a way within Hub Pages to see which articles are only receiving Hub traffic? I try to beef up the low performing Hubs but it would help to know which Hubs have no outside traffic. Or is the score of the Hub sufficient to monitor the lack of Google traffic?
