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.

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

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?

Anyone experiencing a decline in earnings for the past week?
by Janis Leslie Evans 3 years ago
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 after reading Paul Edmondson's hub that something drastic is happening to address...

It seems to be almost down to the level it was last year and never recovered much since the start of Q3. I reckon though it's probably because I'm getting a lot more views with lower CPM in addition to views with high CPM plus backouts from pages before ads load. The result is that it's pushing the...
