Has anyone else noticed a precipitous decline in page views? I usually average between 45 and 100 total views per day. Starting early last week, it dropped to 30. Then 20. And now.....EIGHT??? Seriously?
Anyone else experiencing similar, or have ideas as to why?
I'm seeing the same problem, only it's thousands of hits that I'm losing this week. I've posted about it here. I've unpublished my most popular hub and am reworking it to republish hopefully some time tomorrow. Giving it a breather isn't the best idea, but it's dropped out of Google entirely as far as I can tell, so I'd rather fix up the hub and hopefully get it crawled again instead of just sitting back and waiting for something to happen.
If you edit it, then go into Webmaster Tools, you can 'fetch as Google' and then submit the URL to Google. Google will recrawl it shortly after. Alternatively, when your traffic is significant, Google usually crawls the site several times a day and it won't take long for changes to be noticed. No sense deindexing it and then having to wait for Google to index and then rank it again.
Yes, I've had a sharp drop in traffic over the past couple of days. Others have too, there are a couple threads on the subject. Not sure what it is.
Edit (after checking Google Analytics): In my own case, I think it's a "natural" fluctuation. I notice at the beginning of the month I had a drop in traffic that came back up; and over a longer period of time, an up and down, depending on time of month and which month. This is why many experienced writers say not to check your stats daily but look at long-term trends (at best). Fact is, I'm new to the actually-getting-traffic thing. I'm not used to the fluctuations yet.
I've experienced a decline of traffic specifically for Wednesday. I hope the trend doesn't continue.
Do you think it might be something related to the fact that about 450000 new hubs (lenses from squidoo) have been added? HP obviously would now be submitting a different set of URLs to Google, and that might have caused heavy fluctuations in traffic.
Coz, I am observing the decline for a few of hubs, while the others are following the pattern. Now the point is, will this fluctuations have a temporary, or permanent effect on the traffic trends for our hubs..
YES, I've noticed a steep decline. Honestly, like a third of my views are gone and again, today, my earnings and traffic seem to have not been updated in over 24 hours.

Anyone experiencing a decline in earnings for the past week?

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...

There is a sudden drop in my Hubpages views, I lost 75% views today. Am I alone experiencing this, or there are many Hubbers suffering from this type of huge drop?

Having been with Hubpages for getting on two years now, and having penned 83 Hubs, I think it's time I threw the towel in. Over that time, I conscientiously stuck to all the rules and guidelines, and was rewarded by views gradually rising to around 350 per day with earnings around $25 per month. I...

So far, I've lost about 15% of my traffic, since Panda 3.3 began rolling out earlier this week! It's annoying as I'd only just brought some traffic back up by editing and deleting Amazon hubs after a post-Xmas slump that I've struggled to get out of! It feels like Google wants to keep...

Have the recent decline in hub views affected your earnings on hubpages?
