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

Is there a way to get rid of unwanted traffic sites that attach a link to our hubs without our knowledge? I try to individually monitor my hubs for suspicious traffic and have written two letters to the offender who has sent me 8 visits on one hub this week. Now HubPages has marked my hub with a...

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 judgement on us or our quality of writing, we can use these scores and other tools to...

I saw backlinking as one. What exactly is backlinking? How can we use Google Webmaster Tools to improve traffic? What are the changes to be made in the crawl rate after logging in, if any? Its been close to three months into Hubpages and I am getting a majority of my views from Hubpages. My Google...

In the back of my mind I'm always looking for ways we can improve the HubPages product to help people be more efficient at increasing their traffic. Lots of things in the product start with manual expirments that turn into features of some sort.Right now I'm experimenting with updating old...

I'm curious to hear if there are any hubbers, who saw a big drop in traffic after the most recent Google Panda and Penguin updates, have fixed their issues and are getting good traffic again yet?I think it would be good for us all to know what changes brought about your renewal of traffic, since...

I had a hub that was receiving around 1,300-1,500 views per day. It was chosen as Editor's Choice. It then dropped by about 1,000 views per day. I opted out of the program, but that hub is no longer showing in Google for the keywords that brought it all the traffic before EC messed it up. How can I...
