Interestingly, site traffic has been moving up since the design change. We know HP ran the new ad layout by G before implementing. I'm feeling stirrings of optimism. What say you?
Early days - a lot of internal traffic? The rise is not reflected in my analytics stats.
I'd noticed my stats hadn't gone up either. But I'm in optimism mode today.
I had a massive pile of unfeatured (half moons, not bullet holes) to deal with - nothing destroys my mood more than this hated scourge.
Just now my stats went backwards!!! How in the world does THAT happen! Also, my CPMs from yesterday are half of what they were the day before...and they were quite high the day before. I'm wondering if there are some more computer glitches going on with the stats??
I wish I could share the optimism but my stats have plummeted since the end of November. I had held on pretty good through October. I have a couple of holiday hubs (former lenses) that used to get pretty good traffic this time of year, but their aren't getting any now.
Hoping to get some of that magic you all are feeling...rub some off over here please
Maybe it is because they are worried about their AdSense ads not getting money.
Ya know... You have a major point there. In fact, it is about time someone mentioned that Google makes a flaming fortune off of HubPages.
I never seemed to make much from AdSense. Someone just mentioned that their AdSense income had dropped.
From the posts I've been seeing, all income sources have dropped since the change over. I imagine HP will be going on a tweak fest the next few weeks.
My analytics have shown an increase over HP stats for the past month. This past week they increased, Wednesday being the best day so far.
I had a big surge one day, but it all came from Bing (about 800) for just one hub. Now it went down. I wonder if this was a glitch or something, because I didn't see it in my earnings. I wish I would have checked Analytics.
Yes, there is something going on with hubs surging on HP but not in reality land. I have given up on expecting realistic numbers from HP stats.
I find it even more discouraging to believe a hub just tripled its traffic, and then find out it was a hoax. It's been going on for 2+ weeks for me.
Did you have the traffic surge without an accompanying surge in daily income?
Thanks, I had to go to my profile page to even know what you were talking about. Now if more than 5 or 6 of them would actually read one of my hubs!!!
Yes, income was actually down. Overall though my earnings are up since September. Back to pre-Panda numbers, although I have added 2 new hubs.
Jeez! Darn near had a heart attack. According to HP stats, I'm at a new traffic low for the entire year of 2014. But when I went over to GA, all is well.
So, if HP stats tells you that life has ended as you know it, check GA before dragging out the map to the nearest bridge.
Since the stats started moving again mine have dropped like a rock.
The lowest I have seen in quite a while.
Mine were a new ytd low. It was a lie. Check your GA. You are probably doing just fine.
Thanks for that suggestion. I rarely even check on Friday nights since it is the worst time of the week, but when I did there was about a 1 k difference.
Things are not as bad as it appeared.
Checked GA and actually Friday was my biggest day for December so far.
My stats refreshed about 5 hours back and the HP views have tanked by just over 40%. Has anyone else experienced this sudden drop?
I sure hope so !
A little good news this year would be wonderful for a change
GA traffic DOWN
Time to abandon the new format!! Please!
Looking at the Quantcast stats, HP traffic has increased since the layout change. The weekend always takes a dip. GA is showing more accurate stats. I think the next two weekends may be lower than normal with the holidays. I don't think we're going to see the Christmas sales we used to see years ago. I think those days are over. It's not so much HP or Google's fault. Online shoppers look for bargains.
I have some Christmas related traffic, but it's not for shopping. Although I haven't even checked Amazon earnings this month. I might be surprised.
CPM might have more to do with what advertisers HP is currently working with? I know some categories do better than others.
Can anyone explain to me why impressions would be 60% of pageviews?
Those are your page ad impressions. Sounds like the 60:40 split is working perfectly.
That's the deal we agreed to when we signed up to write here. We get 60% and they get 40%...something has to pay their bills!

This is a serious suggestion.The stats is a sore point for many hubbers. I say if HP can't fix it then remove it. No use having it if we can't get an update at least daily. The page views haven't moved for one week and in other forum it says that the issue has been resolved.Remove this or fix it so...

Is there a way within Hub Pages to see which articles are only receiving Hub traffic? I try to beef up the low performing Hubs but it would help to know which Hubs have no outside traffic. Or is the score of the Hub sufficient to monitor the lack of Google traffic?

Ever since the switch to subdomains, I have seen specific subdomain names listed on the traffic stats for individual Hubs; and on the Traffic Sources Page, the numbers for HubPages have seemed to decline (understandably). Recently, I have seen higher numbers for HubPages.com, and I don't...

I saw where this issue has been addressed in the past and supposedly corrected. But for many weeks now, especially toward the end of the week and weekends, my HubPages stats will not update for hours and sometimes even days at a time. An example would be "Includes data from 17 hours ago and...

We had this same problem a couple of weeks ago and it was resolved. Same problem again today though, so I'm reporting it. (If we don't report problems, how can we expect them to be fixed?)1 day stats are abnormally low, so I checked the stats on an individual hub. The 'day' stat there is...

Stats have updated three times today. The one day, seven day and 30 day totals have changed but the 'Page Views Ever' have remained the same with each update. The last time this happened (in October) I lost 15,000 views in the 'Page Views Ever' total. What's happening now with...
