I have noticed that the traffic to my hubs is decreasing from last week. My five hubs with high traffic were moved to bellatory. Now, they are getting only few visitors. Is there anyone else facing the same issue?
I took a look at your traffic and it looks like your Google traffic is up, but your pinterest traffic is down.
When we see Pinterest traffic change for new sites, we check to make sure that readers can successfully click through. It appears that pinterest is able to refer traffic properly. So all good there. Here are a few examples.
My best guess is something changed on Pinterest's side. However, if you find examples of Pins getting blocked, let us know and we will get in touch with them to get it cleared up. This doesn't appear to be the case to me, but that would be the only thing we can assist with as far as Pinterest traffic goes.
If people are seeing Pinterest traffic changes, it might be because Pinterest's algorithm changed on February 1, 2016.
I can't believe how low the views are. I was shocked when I saw them this morning. Nothing I can do about it no time to fool around with my hubs now.
Yes, Jasmeetk. I'm having the same experience with my hubs on Delishably. I was told it's part of the transition over and traffic will get better with time. However, I've seen several hubbers say their traffic has increased already. It does make me concerned about getting traffic back to normal in a "timely" manner.
@janshares - Most have seen dramatic traffic increases, but it's possible for Hubs to see different results based on a number of factors.
Is your traffic change driven by social traffic like pinterest? Feel free to share the piece of content and I'll take a look.
Hi Paul. I don't get a lot of traffic from Pinterest. The hubs in question are my turkey meatball recipe and my oxtail recipe hubs. They've gotten mostly organic traffic in the past. One is just beginning to gain a little. The other still in single digits. Thank you for checking into it.
Hi Janshares, I looked at your hubs and their google traffic is up. It looks like something else was referring traffic to this article. Not sure what it was, because I don't see a referring host for it. I don't think this has anything to do with getting moved to delishably.
Most of the content moved to delishably is up considerably and still improving.
If you know what was referring traffic you could update the link to the new site and see if that helps.
Would you like to play
update. analysying punctuation
Okay, thank you kindly, Paul. I'll check it out.
Edit: Paul, the black bar is no longer at the top of the Delishably hubs where we click "edit," "stats" or "delete." So I can't get to the "referrers" tab to see where traffics comes from. I couldn't find it on GA.
Oops, forgot I had to sign in to new sites to get stats/referrers. Anyhey, I don't see anything unusual, most traffic comes from HP and Google. Traffic continues to remain very low, single digits for one. Neither has barely gotten out of the teens since the move to Delishably. Disappointed.
To access the editing and stats nav bar on the new sites you must log in (again), even if you are already logged in to HubPages.
Logging in just once for all sites would be more convenient, especially since they use the same username and password as logging in for the main HP site.
my most of the traffic drives from pinterest. What to do?
I read an article yesterday that said Pinterest changed its algorithm because group boards were gaming their system. If your photos are on them, that may be the reason for the drop.
Your responding to this concerns me.
Well. Not Really. Someday.
My traffic numbers on one hub switched to PetHelpful is up 600 percent. Overall, my traffic is up now about 100 percent and rising - and that includes all of my Hubs, even those still sitting on HubPages. The reason for the increase is the rise in Google traffic from my niche site Hubs. This is causing my Hubs to be discovered and shared. The combination means my numbers are WAY better than they have ever been.
I am pleased to hear the numbers are up for all of the new niche sites. I hope this brings cash to HubPages and a new beginning for the staff and the writers. So far, I'm thinking the niche sites were an awesome idea!!
Nope, looks like my traffic has nearly doubled. I have one hub moved over to bellatory and it's doing even better there. Even with the increase in traffic, the 80/20 rule is still in play.
My traffic is a little better than doubled since the move to Pethelpful. Thanks for thinking of a series of new sites!
It's interesting that you say that because 21 of my 102 hubs were moved over two weeks ago and they jointly account for 75% of my overall traffic. The numbers really surprised me, but you are spot on with this comment. Can't figure out what would make numbers like that so consistent.
My Pinterest traffic has also decreased, but none of my hubs have been moved (yet).
Pinterest has changed - they are making local sites for other countries e.g. Australians now get automatically switched to https://au.pinterest.com/

Happy Friday, Hubbers!Next week we will be raising the quality threshold for newly-published Hubs (meaning newly-Featured Hubs will, on the whole, be of higher quality) and will also be giving Featured Hubs (for those with high Hubber Scores) longer grace periods- up to a year for some.More...

I'm bored. Ok correction, I'm procrastinating. I randomly come on and off the forums and on this return visit I've seen SO many people questioning why their hubs aren't making money and/or getting traffic.So for as long I'm having fun, feel free to post below (either for your whole account or one...

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more! (currently 16 visits per minute). Might be worth looking into as an alternative...

http://www.pinterest.com/source/hubpages.com/Looks like there are no hubs on Pinterest (I noticed no Pinterest traffic today and had to investigate.)Hubs are no longer pinnable.I wish hubbers wouldn't spam social networks. :\

I've been on HP since October 2015. I've written a fair number of articles. I understand I haven't been as active lately, but I am getting what might as well be no traffic. The only time I seem to get any traffic to speak of is when I am actively promoting my hubs, and even then it only lasts for a...
