    Seems like I was getting good traffic and the last 3 days, it's been almost nonexistant. I've been posting new hubs on almost daily basis, but even old hubs that generally keep regular traffic haven't been read. What's the deal?

      In the last month my traffic has reduced by 100 reads a day, just checked the stats and kinda thought it reduced but not by that much. Makes ya wonder !

      Old? You mean more than 4 weeks old? My 2 year old hubs are showing a good amount of traffic. Looking forward to next month when everyone is back from vacation.

    My overall traffic continues to increase. That's because I keep writing hubs. But it is a slog to keep things moving upward. I've bee blogging about my hubs. And I've been scooping them as well, thanks to Uninvited Writer.

      On the plus side my outside traffic has doubled so I am happy overall, I just need to spend time producing quality instead of firing out garbage, I am my own worst critic. Still I shall keep trying smile

    I heard the hub challenge increases traffic. And I talk about and link to my hubs a lot.

    North America is either cramming in one last week of summer vacation or distracted with the kids starting school.  It will all start to shift in the next week or two.

    I haven't been here that long, but all seems well. Don't really know that much about it...Traffic that is! Maybe everyone is having one last vacation rally............

    I'm wondering if part of it might be that the huge influx of new hubs means there's more traffic over all, but also maybe for some people that their hubs that are newer without any SEO (like keywords in the titles, back links, that sort of thing) simply have a harder time getting traffic because now there are related hubs that do have Ezinearticle backlinks and and stuff like that, making the SEO all the more important to get traffic.

    My older hubs or ones I've promoted all seem to be doing fantastic.  The newer ones are taking longer and more work to get attention to.  So there's my two cents of thought on something that might be affecting the recent trends.

    The you need to do more self-promotion. The net is a very competitive place to make a living.
