It is quite disappointing to note that both my traffic and earnings fall since one month. I understand a lot of hubbers face similar situation and they are too concerned and worried. The knowledgeable people are of the opinion that it is Panda effect. Whatever it may be, it is a slap on our confidence and energy. Now I get only one fourth of my usual traffic and earnings. I don't know how to tackle this issue. I had been here since March 2012 and never faced such a serious issue as of now. I find the drop is in my follower list too for it remains intact for months. What else I need to improve, I don't know. Hope things may change to a positive path soon. Dear hubbers, please share your views/tips.

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks....

Just kidding!I'm seeing dozens of threads from people stressing about losing traffic. Asking if this is the end of Hubpages. Asking if it's pointless writing here anymore. Asking if there is even a point to writing...

I don't know what is going on but my traffic has been pushed off a cliff. I am not doing anything differently then when my traffic and earnings were great.
