While the traffic isn't affected by the update as much, earnings sure as hell have taken a huge hit. Anyone else in the same boat? Here is hoping that things go back to normal soon.
I did really well when my hubs began moving to niche sites, but now I'm back to where I was about 2 years after I started (I've been here 6). Allowing us to only try to move 2 hubs a month is hard. Plus when they give corrections, the turn around time is really slow. They ultimately move the hub, but it sometimes takes a whole month to move one. Maybe they should speed it up a bit.
Otherwise, I think it's another failed experiment, unless we all start writing to the niches. People with a lot of hubs are most likely to fix older ones. All of my old ones are featured. But when a reader sees it's a 5 year old hub, that could be a turnoff, although I write evergreen things. Plus some of the categories just aren't that interesting.
I'd give it some time before drawing conclusions. There is an ebb and flow seasonality to traffic, and the experiment is not even a year old. In the interim, perhaps try promoting them on social media, making smart edits/updates, and all the usual advice.

Since things have kind of been changed up has anyone else felt the sting of low views...and longer updating times? Is this just another lull and things will pick back up or do we need to work harder to get more views in?

My traffic this week is about 5-10% lower, but my earnings are about 30% lower. Is this just because fewer people are buying things at this time of year? Is anyone else seeing the same sort of trend? Perhaps I should write some holiday hubs...

My HP traffic down since last three to four days and it's a matter of great concern for me. I have already written 50 hubs for the contest but still I am not seeing the traffic that I was seeing post google algorithm change. Is there anyone else who is facing the same problems. I have started...

This has been a problem for years now, really since the induction of the HubPages ad program and it's pretty much what has made me give on on HubPages (I used to write a lot, now seldom.)I have a hub that occasionally gets huge bursts of traffic as it's popular in social media. On those days, I...

Am I losing money from my writing here on Hubpages?Although my hubs have been badly hit by another Panda or a Penguin update and the earnings from my Hubs are at their lowest in a few years, I cannot say in all honesty that I am losing any money what so ever.I may be earning less now than I have in...
