My single page is getting nearly ten times the traffic it received shortly after Fred hit. That is still only half of what it got before Fred, but it's a step in the right direction.
Anyone else seeing an improvement?
The source of this traffic? And by 10 times was it receiving 1 view a day earlier?
We are talking significant numbers and Google traffic or I wouldn't have mentioned it. In fact, the page is now more or less back to where it was before Fred.
Yes mine are. I found 2sites that had unauthorized copied articles on them. A couple days ago. Yesterday the were both gone. I think someone had them removed. Mine have been improving since then.
BTW why has no one else pitched in here? It's been awfully quiet lately.
Good question. Either the increases are not typical or people are scared of jinxing themselves.
Seems like I spoke some magic words Hello everyone
Mine popped up today. It's back to the low average of what it was before Fred, and it's all Google traffic.
Of my two Healdove articles, one is experiencing a rebound with an up arrow, they other never really took a hit. CPM though remains half of what it was, and that is lame. Traffic on Pethelpful is still of 20-25% for me.
Yes, Will, I have definitely seen it with the article that took the worst hit. I'm surprised and pleased. I hope it keeps up. Thanks, HP, if this is due to your efforts to restore HealDove. Mission accomplished. Fingers crossed.
It might be HP's efforts or it might be a further change in Google's algo. Maybe the original Fred was not surfacing the best content in the way it was meant to.
Either way, I'm sure it is a relief for everyone. Except maybe, the 'quit HP immediately' gang. lol. They might have to go undermine some other site for a while.
..or tell everyone how delightful their blog is.
Does caloriebee count as another site? I'm not complaining just adding to the discussion and giving the naysayers some ideas
I didn't realise that Caloriebee had taken a similar hit to Healdove.
I can't believe that Caloriebee comes into the 'money or your life' category. If I was looking for a weakness on that site, I would come up with 'unoriginality'. It is hard to be original with recipes. But then competitors would have the same issue.
Perhaps the user metrics are not great for those 2 sites. Or they are not picking up inbound links as well as the other sites...
I would try to identify some common factors.
Fingers crossed, touch wood and white rabbits.....I think I covered it? Yep its up....slightly! lol!
Five out of six of my hubs in HealDove have a big jump in the past 24 hours. Too soon to know if this is just a one-day glitch. It's mostly from Google so I'm feeling pretty optimistic.
I have never seen numbers shoot up so fast! Usually it's a slow climb, then a sudden drop, then a slow climb again. This time they are going up like a rocket. I'm happy, but it makes me a little uneasy.
Healdove and Caloriebee have bounced back. While we are always working to improve sites, we know that things bounce around from time to time. We doubt we did enough work to recover those sites, so google must have changed a dial.
Thanks Paul, for the information, and all your hard work. Something certainly changed in a short span of time. Perhaps they they recognized the error of their ways
Thank you Paul and the HP Team. I see an improvement already.
Thank you Paul. This is very reassuring.
I too notice my numbers on Healdove rising...
Wow I woke up to traffic lots of it. HP 24 hour stats have a 100% increase from yesterday and real time analytics is looking nice with many blue bars again My top caloriebee article is not back at it's usual yet, but almost.

I've been experiencing a drop in traffic for the last week or so. I've been seeing a lot of people in the forums talking about how they are seeing increases in traffic, but I am seeing the opposite. Is anyone else seeing a drop in traffic?

For about 2 weeks now I have been seeing a huge decrease in traffic. I'm not sure of the cause because I've checked and a lot of my hubs still are ranking well with Google but it seems that people just stopped coming. Is anyone else having this problem?

Is anyone else seeing an increase in traffic but a decrease in profits?My traffic is steadily increasing, but my earnings are not. Is anyone else experiencing this or am I alone? I know traffic doesn't determine revenue, but a large majority of my traffic is from google, so I would expect to see my...

So in the past 6 months we have all endured a real rollercoaster ride thanks to the big G. Many of us are still really struggling while some of us have reached new heights with our page views. I am happy to say I am in the second group of people, my views are better than they have ever...

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?
by Andrew 9 years ago
I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April 1st Conflicker Virus? I was thinking these two things can't be so harmful to my...
