Does the seasonal nature of gardening articles on DenGarden and drop in traffic to the site towards autumn affect the ranking of other articles in the Home Improvement, Cleaning and Home Appliance categories?
I've had some minor ups and downs on gardening stuff but nothing major. Owlcation seems to be suffering at the moment, for whatever reason, or maybe it is the kinds of page I write there.
I expected to see some drop in my gardening Hubs, but that is not the case, yet. I do focus on the West Coast and the Fall is an opportune time to do landscaping and cool weather veggies. All the newspapers and gardening stores talk fall planting up big here.
I always see a jump in visits in the Spring, though.
As far as affecting other titles in Dengarden, Fall/Winter might. That depends on how much readers look at HPs Menu, other titles and search pages for the site. We don't get stats on that. Can we see how any of the niches are doing?
We can only see what are own Hub is doing.
Are you referring to traffic similar to Behavior Flow in Google Analytics? I have always wondered how well cross reading, or linking of articles did in the niches.
It's just that quite a few evergreen articles which have fairly high, non-seasonal traffic (which was actually growing) have lost a lot of traffic over the last couple of months, about 33%.
I wonder is the ranking of sites on Alexa any way representative of the truth?
Pethelpful has been off too, about 10-15% in pageviews for over a month. However CPM is making a comeback this last week. I wonder if the backlinking thing they were going to experiment with has be implemented yet.

I posted before about how I recently returned to writing on HubPages. Years ago, Hubs did not have to be featured or get transferred to niche sites. I remember in 2011 that a hub could literally go from 0 views to 1,000...
