I have recently noticed a huge decline in traffic for my hubs. Is it only with me or everyone is having the same experience these days. Has there been any change in Google search. 90% of my traffic is organic and comes from Google search...all help is appreciated.
Yes, it happened after the Panda update in September. What I noticed is that I lost just a few positions in the SERPs, but it was enough to significantly reduce traffic. But it wasn't quite as tragic as I thought. A little bit of a rebound as others are saying. Still writing, because I think you never know. Spending a bit more time on my own sites though. Fact is, ups and downs are a bit "natural" on the Internet.
Yes, it is a huge decline for everyone, I think. Mine has plummeted to half of what it was.
My traffic has rebounded today..nothing spectacular but better than the past few weeks....
Mine also rebound today. I was surprised at this, I checked GA and it showed a traffic increase.
Mine has rebounded a bit as well. It's hard to tell what's going on. Maybe we won't get a good read until things settle down.
Meanwhile, I'm trying to implement Writer Fox's suggestions, which include:
- Putting in alt tags on my photos. On HP, this simply means filling in the captions. I also took out the photo capsule headline.
- Getting rid of too many links back to two of my blogs.
- Putting in authoritative links to other sites, not more HP articles or Wikipedia.
I've also taken out a few affiliate links, although I stay well under the limit. I'm continuing to add content during this update, because I don't want the search engines to think I've stopped. I'm trying to update and improve my articles on my main account. Maybe this well help, maybe it won't.
My traffic remains pretty steady even when others announce big falls.
Could it be because I have been here a long time and all my Hubs are 'mature'? My daily traffic rate and earnings have risen slightly in the last month but a seasonal rise in the run up to Christmas is quite normal.
I have experienced a drop in traffic and in earnings, however, I have fixed an issue that Google had identified (via Google Webmaster Tools), on some of my hubs. Now I am hoping for traffic to return to normal. Fingers crossed.
Went from earnings every month to $0 the last 2 months...wth?
Halloween was a fiasco, but that was to be expected. Otherwise, I remain alive and well.
Yeah that September plummet destroyed my October numbers. That Sept problem hit, and I limped on until a week or so ago when I started to climb back up. All of October was -20% across the board though. =P
I got hit hard but most of the hit was DUE TO other people getting hit. Everyone else's numbers fall, so I lost all my link juice from them. My pathetic organic numbers stayed the same, lol.
So I am not the only one here... everyone is facing the same issue.
My traffic dropped by half after the Panda update. I was just starting to think a monthly payout might be in reach--with a few more hubs! Nope.
With you there blueheron. In past few months I have added over 30 new hubs, yet everything still stinks. So apparently, whether you have 10 or 1000 hubs,, it makes no difference.
Here is a break down of the new Panda update and what it means for you and how your pages perform http://in2.so/1wXEpL2

It's only the 20th of the Month, but my earnings for this month are already 10 times greater than what it was for April last year. It's also almost the highest ever (even though CPMs are half of what they were in December) It's mostly due to increased traffic and the CPMs (compared to last year). I...

Looks like HP and Squidoo have both suffered a 20% decline in pages views from the latest Google Panda Hit - early days of course. Ho Hum! What a bum!

I am at a point where I don't know if I should spend the little time that I have updating my numerous hubs across 4 accounts, or just ignore, and write new hubs. It has become tiring. I haven't had the inspiration to write more, just because I am made to feel that all I have written in the past...

I asked this before possibly, but it would be really useful, if the stats are available, if earnings per article were shown on the statistics page. Then we wouldn't have to be wasting our time improving articles that may have lots of views but aren't earning much.

Since past 2 days, I have witnessed a huge drop in the traffic. From around 500+ page views, it has been dropped to less than 150; more than 70% drop. Is someone else also experiencing something similar? Are there any algorithm updates by Google...

Anyone experiencing a decline in earnings for the past week?
