Before the google update I was on around 140 views per day, now down to 40 and its not rising back again.
I have always tried to write high quality articles (if anything my highest quality article is the one that has been hit the hardest). I started writing in February and my traffic rose steadily until this update, now I'm back to where I was in April, however this time I'm not making any improvement.
I have written two new hubs since the update and neither of them are gaining any hits (from both hubs 2 views from google in 2 weeks).
Any advice? this is blooming frustrating.
Ever since Panda/Penguin, my views have bumped along between awful and are you kidding me?. I write in the gardening niche, so this time of year is usually slow for me anyways, but never this slow. What little traffic I get is from Pinterest, Bing and Yahoo.
I was at almost 5000 views a day, now I am at 700 something...tell me about it!
Unfortunately my views and earnings are way down too.
I think they're about a quarter (if that) of what they were a couple of months ago.
Very, VERY disappointing.
Sadly there has been NO increase in traffic after the 100K Squidoo articles were added to HP. So everyone is competing on a site with many more articles, opportunities diluted. See http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126677
I think it's safe to say just about everybody here took one to the gut after the last Panda update. I've had days where I'll get an occasional "burst" of traffic but for the most part, my traffic is comatose.
I thought my traffic was recovering. But, apparently, there's been yet another update and it's fallen flat again.
My views on my main account have returned to pre-Panda levels over the last week. Fingers crossed that I don't Jinx myself. My newer account is still down in the dump.
Which one is doing well, the dog-centric one?
How many hubs do you have in your second account? Do you think Google is mainly penalizing those thin accounts that have very few pages in that subdomain?
The little account is very thin lol. It has 5-6 hubs on a scatter of subjects, so it may be that Panda despised it. Prior to Panda it was getting 200-300 views a day. Now it is at 50-70 views a day. I am finding it difficult to get inspired to write something for that account and try to help it out of its hole.
However, thanks to Amazon, that account has made payout the last 3 months. So, I should buck-up, and try to jump start it again.
My views and earnings are belly up, going down and lower.

Mine are going up, going down, going up, going down.....yawn! lol!
zero, zero, zero....I see too many zeros! I have one blogger page that is getting traffic. That's it folks!
Every time, I seem to be getting encouraged and more page views, a Panda destroys my views and about the time I start earning again, along comes another Panda! Bad, Bad.
Which update? There have been several.
Apparently the most recent is an update reclassifying thin content which hit on Oct 25th. See the following:

All my views are way down, how is everyone else doing?

Sorry if this has been discussed already ad nauseam (I was out of town a bit), but I was experiencing an uptick on several sites following the rollout of Panda 4.2, that seems to have been eradicated on August 14, 2015. In fact my website went almost to 10% of normal pageviews since August...

The recent Panda update produced a typical change in traffic for HP shown below.I have often wondered why the change is so immediate and consistent. As shown in the image below it would suggest that the change is not the sum of all the changes in quality rating and/or penalties applied to all the...

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 was loving that my traffic was doubled for a while... it was hitting levels I had never seen before on HubPages.But today I just noticed it's down at least 1,000 views, and I check pretty much every day.I'm not sure what could have caused this but the only thing I've done different is I've been...
