Traffic stopped on January 20

    Did we ever find a definite answer as to why?

    Across three hubpages accounts, I lost 80% of my ad impressions over night on January 20th and it hasn't come back. Traffic was steady for months and years, dropped precipitously over night and has stayed steady at the new level for 8 months. The drop was equal (percentage-wise) and at the same time across each of the three accounts Any reason why?

      Why would anyone other than you be aware of or investigating your Hub traffic loss? 

      Your account activity shows you have not taken any actions at all in the last nine months prior to making this post.  Who is the royal "we" that you think is somehow looking into your question?

        Please don't be a bully.

        I asked a similar question about the traffic several months ago (http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/128975) as well as direct communication with other hubbers who were having the identical problem. I assumed it was a larger, wide-spread issue.

        I must have really touched a nerve for you to have responded in the way that you did. I apologize for offending you with my question.

          Don't take it personally. Relache is a very straight-to-the-point person. I agree with her in that you gave minimal information in your question, so there was no reason why we'd have an answer without more specifics.

    I think that might just be a question only you or HQ can answer.

    I was puzzled by your question and took a look at three very different hubs on my account and I can see no drop in my traffic around that date.

    No drop in my account around that day either.
