It's too frustrating for new hubber like me to experience a huge drop on traffic views and hub scores.
It may be a normal turn of events but it doesn't make it any less disconcerting. I've noticed it and it makes me feel uncomfortable. I really got tired of having to work so very hard especially when the rewards are slow in the coming. This is the worse part of all!
Don't worry much about the hubscore thing. I've watched the scores before the animal updates and they mean practically nothing to traffic.
About the heavy drop in traffic, everybody is complaining. But my concern is: what next? Are we supposed to just sit and hope for things to get better? Or what can we do to remedy the situation?
Contrary to the popular assumption that the recent Google updates are bent on delivering better search results, I've noticed that is not the case. The result page is sometimes very confusing. For instance, I searched for a popular keyword and the results were: Number 2 - An article about 50 words that was off topic with lots of links below it. No 3 - Was not mobile compliant.
My conclusion is that although our traffic might not return to normal, the updates are still in progress. If there isn't anything we can do, that's okay. If we need to do something, somebody kindly tell us.
I saw a huge drop as well just today. Amazing how traffic was climbing and right when I thought it was recuperating, it just plummeted. On a lighter note, traffic to my blogs are steadily up. I wouldn't worry much about scores, they shift quite a lot and some days go down but don't seem to reflect much on traffic.
Traffic goes up and down, like the stock market, due to a lot of different factors - weather, holidays, electricity/internet blackouts, etc. The scores also go up and down, even more so when you are new.
It is all a normal part of writing on HubPages. If you expect it, it doesn't deliver as much of a shock when it happens.

Has the HP algo changed within the last day or so? My hubscores are dropping all of a sudden, especially the lowest scoring hubs. Or could this be due to a sharp decrease in traffic? Maybe both? I just have a feeling...

Prompted by a comment in another thread, I thought it would be useful to perhaps slightly change the way that we commonly think about changes to hub scores, hubber scores and the like. Rather than see them as a...

The Global Quantcast data over the last month has shown a disturbing steady decline in traffic of 12% over the last month. My traffic shows the same trend. Any one know the reason (Don't say its Summer). Why isn't...

Has there been another update from Google? I ask since my views have been dropping rapidly every hour since the past 6 hours. Surprisingly the total views in the stats has remained stationary since the same time.Stats...

I cannot understand how my most read hub never makes it to the top and just stays around 75 and never to 100 as many of my less popular ones do? How can this be?

This is curious: my top five hubs, with the highest scores, display a significant drop-off in page views. I am not complaining about the scores, or the fact that they remain in the top 5. I'm just...
