On August 26 it will be one year since my hubs took a 90% hit. It happened without warning or explanation, but when the ashes settled, I only had 10% of my former views.
I went crazy trying to figure out what went wrong.
I removed 47 articles so that I could create a niche site.
I revamped every single article.
I asked everybody for suggestions and took most of them.
As time passed, I realized what happened. School started. Summer vacations ended. Nobody really needed to read very much of what I was writing about.
So, I waited.
Spring eventually came, and views slowly started climbing.
Tomorrow, the number of views I had left after cleaning out my site will have doubled!
I better enjoy my little victory, because school is starting again this week.
There has to be groups on FB and elsewhere who are very into camping and RV-ing. I recommend that you advertise your exceptional informative articles on that subject to those people.
The above isn't my idea -- wish I could claim it. I read about it in a hub by Lyoness913 and I think she has some ideas for getting traffic that might actually work.

Hope this will help you Sandy. Your articles are so useful and I know there are lots of people out there who would love to get their hands on them (or eyes if you prefer).
Au Fait: Thanks. I will read it more thoroughly tomorrow, but after taking a peek, I think there are some great ideas there. Within the next hour or so I should hit 300,000. My goal was to make to that point before school started, and I'm happy to say it will now happen.
I truly appreciate all of the support you have given me in recent months.
PS I just looked again and 300,00 is already there...and counting! Yaayyy
Ah, yes that makes sense. You have very seasonal type articles. Some great looking ones though!
You have a lot of hubs on RVs. Why don't you change "TIMETRAVELER2" into RVTRAVELLER?

Hi everyone. I've been putting some work in writing quality articles the last few months, all my articles are approved as featured but earnings are still pretty low. I have earned a total of $1+ in two months, and with that speed it will take years to reach checkout. I have both Hubpages and...

Try sending an email to HubPages staff direcently and explain your frustrations. I have found in the past they at least respond even if they don't give the results you wish for.The help wizard is how you do it.

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

I write how-to and recipe hubs. I know the recipe hubs will make money eventually but I have read that technical hubs get more views. What is your thoughts or experience on this topic?

Is it better to write for HubPages or Squidoo?Recently, I've heard a lot about Squidoo being possibly better than HubPages in many aspects. Which do you think is better to write for if you're looking for traffic and earnings?
