There are lots of forum posts and discussions going on about problems with HubPages traffic. How many of you have issues at other sites right now? I also write at textbrokers. Open Orders are almost nonexistent as of late. Team and Direct Orders are fewer than usual, or maybe the Team Orders are just getting snatched up really fast. I was accepted at Writers Access and submitted my profile, but it has been over a week and I'm still waiting for approval. How are the rest of you faring at content writing sites?
My income at my main writing site dropped from $1200-1000 / month to $230-200 / month.
Needless to say, I've been putting more elbow grease into my own websites and blogs of late. I'd never troubled to monetize them, since I seemed to draw better income on third party platforms which slather my content with more ads than I could stand on my own properties. At this point, however, since my own sites maintain steady traffic, I've bit the bullet and added a little Adsense and AmAssoc to my sidebars, and have resolved to write more consistently on sites that I control.
...except that really, Hubpages is still solid for me. If I hadn't gotten burned out on digital sharecropping, I'd be adding more hubs to my portfolio. I'm still waiting for the Angel of Traffic Death to finish buying donuts down the street and attend to my cul-de-sac.
Did you opt out of Editor's Choice? Someone else suggested doing that if things are going well. What do you think?
It might be good to sprinkle some salt or something, at that. The angel seems to have left my neighborhood, leaving the gate swinging. Traffic shows a sharp uptick the last couple of days.
Thanks Greekgeek, that seems to be a safer course right now.

Having written across of a number of sites, some that did the Google dance before dying a slow death, there's a chilling pattern that unfolds, not only for site owners but for their writers. Owners start by making...

Curious: Do you have multiple accounts, because your profile shows 68 hubs. I took a lot of mine and moved them. I let what I have left sit til it goes idle then I take remove it. I have over 80 articles, new ones, that...

I'm very happy with the results of the niche sites. It's a win-win for HubPages and writers like myself. But I'm a bit curious about the process for choosing Hubs that go on those sites.One of my most successful Hubs on...

I used to work with a guy, who within the first five or ten minutes of the day would say, "I hate it here." He said that day after day. How do you stay positive in an environment like that? As a new employee I...

Since HubPages is changing their focus to feeding their new niche sites, where will you be moving your hubs that don't fit the new sites?I highly doubt they'll make any new sites that have anything to do with any of the...
