It is my first time to have seen lots of red upward triangles to indicate good traffic on my hubs. Thank you Hubpages and Google.
Yeah! My traffic is also coming back to normal. Traffic increased from 900 to 1700 a day, almost doubled in a week.
Congrats man!! I am new to this and so far have only created one hub article, having issues with the image (rights) .Can some one guide me as where I can find decent pictures?
Wait... I have an open cut you can pour some lemon juice in if you'd like.
After a huge decrease in traffic over the summer, my traffic seems to be returning to normal. If I remember correctly, this happens ever summer and then there is a sudden boost resulting in a spike of traffic coming in, which usually gives you a few extra readers resulting in slightly higher traffic the following year.
Yay, I have two red triangles! First I've seen in awhile. I was really getting tired of seeing only blue triangles or nothing at all. I agree; things are picking up.
Yes a good number of red arrows....but for how long?
I've become a skeptic these days.
I am pretty sure this will be for long because I made some improvements on my hubs. All of my hubs now have black H symbol on the right side of the stats. I am so overwhelmed.
Getting red arrows on hubs that only average a handful or two of views each day is not really a major cause for celebration. I am seeing some recovery on my account having regained about 10% of the 50% that I lost.
I am seeing red arrows but when you look at a hub that has gone from 2 views to 4 that is hardly significant. I want to see the hubs that got 100's of views pick back up and gain some red arrows!!
I still have some optimism for HP... But I think investing in my own sites is a better way of securing my long term online future.
hubpages is now being my new house. I feel comfortable here. This is my story, what's your story??
My story is just here in HP and I am studying if I have to make another website to post my other articles. Good or bad?
When we see that red triangle or two of them I wonder by how many views the views actually increase.
I am also finding a rise in traffic. But all of a sudden, one fine day it may go half. Our fate is on google algorithm change..no matter how well we perform..what do you all say
Agree, I have seen a red triangle on pages that have gone up by only a couple of views but by the same token it is good to check when you see blue arrows as the decrease might not be as drastic as it looks.
Two triangles is always a bit better or worse depending on the colour of them.
I wonder if most of us views per day of about the range from 100 to 300 visits.
You can get some idea of the levels of views that people have by looking at their profile - you have the 10k traffic icon so you have had somewhere between 10k and 100k views on your 25 hubs in the time you have been here.. Some of us have 1million views icons or even 10million views.. that will give you some idea...
My traffic increased another 45% the past seven days over the previous week. It will probably be lower until the end of the Labor Day vacation, but it's a great trend.
My traffic isn't very good. Trying to be more interactive to increase traffic. Any suggestions would be helpful.
I have been with HP for 18 months and I have never had hundreds of views. I wish the people who get this amount would tell me how they get this many. The most I have ever had was 120 views and thst was because I was HOTD. My average
views are 30-40 a day!
Your topics are very broad and have lots of competition. Don't they teach you this stuff in the apprenticeship program??
We were given the keyword tool figures to work with when writing our AP hubs. Each hub had to conform to certain criteria. You do what you are told because you think it is the best way!
In fact, they do:

Your pages are well written and very informative but it's all high authority, health related stuff.
Sadly, HP is not really going get you traffic for those subjects.
On a brighter note. Good news, everyone! My traffic is only a few hundred views away from where it was before the bad Panda.
Much happier this week.
@meloncauli: What people searches in the world? Information or Solution for something... Writing a topic about that will be helpful to get more traffic (Without pain. I mean getting traffic from search engine).
You have Icon "a" bottom left of your Icon and that states you are a good writer. My advice is write on a Topic people actually searches or "In need". For Example try about weight loss and give this Topic title "How to lose weight fast for women" - Don't change the Title (Not everybody in this world is English literature so they may end up with a search like the above one) and see how it performs. Note weight loss is high earning topic as well
Thanks for your input, but you see it's all a bit conflicting! If you write about what a lot of people are searching for, then you are in a lot of competition. The figures we were given in the AP were supposed to be an ideal solution. Some of my hubs were actually titled by the AP program! They are doing no better than the ones I created myself.
Meloncauli; I had a quick look at one of your hubs and it was fine, but I want you to just consider something for a brief moment with regards to your area of expertise.
If you were a search engine looking to provide a searcher with reputable and helpful queries about depression and other related subjects would you present them with dedicated sites authored by experts or would you show them pages from a broad site like HP with many writers who only write to earn money?
If you were a searcher which site would you trust?
Maybe you would be better off creating a specialist site and promoting your expertise in that area. It is not expensive nor is it difficult to start your own website.
HP is a great platform to cut your teeth on and test the waters but it will never be seen as an authority site for medical searches on the internet.
Thanks LeanMan, you are probably very right to suggest this, and I have thought about it in the past. Cutting my teeth though has cost me many many hours of hard work, and it makes me both angry and upset that I trusted all the advice I have previously been given.
Any suggestions of a good website provider/hosting?
I wouldn't give up. Take a look at Wrylit's pregnancy stuff. Those titles are very specific, long tail and she has made that area of pregnancy into a profitable niche. You obviously know your way around the mental health area, so what are the specific questions or issues that people want info about?
p.s. ditch the impaled eye. Injecting anxiety into visitors to mental health pages just has to be wrong...
I feel the same as meloncauli except that my daily views are higher. My main niche is RV Lifestyle and is loaded with info people want and need. While it is a fairly popular area, few people have 50 years of experience in this area like I do, so I bring a bit of a different view...and yet...no big views like so many others have.
I hope my hub also get huge traffic and it show as a triangle. i have submitted a hub in the pages and wait for the approval of their quality assurance.

Many people have asked how the new sites are performing so far. The latest Newsletter provides a general overview, but I'd also like to invite Hubbers who have had Hubs moved to discuss your experiences here. Overall,...

I have observed that lots of my hubs have red arrow which means, the traffic is increasing, is that mean hubpages had cope up with the panda update?
by David 4706 years ago
Has anyone had a traffic increase to hubs that never really made that many views and are now getting more? I have multiple hubs that are getting red flags that could barely get a view in a day.These hubs are not making...
by David 4706 years ago
I have no idea what happened, but a ton of my hubs just got double red flags! My traffic went from a couple thousand views daily to nearly 10,000 overnight!!This is insane! Has this happened to anyone else?

Long ago I had an exceptionally long hub on 7 rules of creative writing--lots longer than the optimum length of 1,500 words that I've seen recommended by HubPages. I read in various hubs that hubs should not be so long,...

Hope this forum is where my post belongs. I simply wanted to comment, that the red and blue arrows, indicative of our traffic, made me laugh this morning. Two hubs that I published on the 5th, have arrows pointing down,...
