As stated in title, my eBay and Amazon earnings stopped entirely when I updated the ads in my capsules. I don't get it. I hadn't noticed before that the items I had listed were not all that interesting. I made sure that all items in both types of capsules had better quality products. Now my sales have dropped entirely. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Any observations?
This time of the year has some of the lowest traffic levels, and people making sales now tend to have Hub topics that are strongly seasonal. Have you considered these factors?
Even though I considered that it's possibly seasonal, I have looked back right to the beginning of starting to earn here, and it's been a very long time since I had this many consecutive days with no eBay or Amazon earnings. So it seems that it may not have anything to do with that. But you can't really say for sure either...
I see your author score is 79. Has it been that number for a while? Do you remember when it was over 85 and when it fell below that level?
I was inactive on HubPages for over a year. During that time away, my Hubber score remained at 83 the whole time. Since returning, the score fell to 79, and it has been that way for about two weeks.
That is about the length of time my earnings have been down, so I suppose you are saying that there is a correlation?
Yes, I am saying there is a correlation.
Hubs can no longer be abandoned and expected to perform, unlike some of he early years on this site. The standards for quality have changed, and the threshold for having Hubs marked as do-follow was raised to 85.
You're going to want to read the section on making online content in the Learning Center. There are several articles on making or updating Hubs to the current standards.
It seems that it was a mistake to return, as it's since I have that my Hubber score dropped. The core was always stable before. I unfortunately don't have time to pore over everything in great detail, so abandonment may once again become order of the day.
Lol... I have made it sound that I only have a good score when absent... that isn't the case. When I was active before, that's before I had other online projects on the go, I always had a score over 90. But those days are gone as I have to much else on the go.
