    Don't forget the economy of the world is hurting,and people have lost their jobs,so they do not have money too buy things and are not as active as they are down in the dumps over all that has happened to us by the big corporate thieves we keep feeding money too!!!

      Yes economy is hurting, but these corporate keep big fat check to themselves while sending home those who created the checks, when are they going to start spending these checks

        Some people have lots of money. I live in a resort community and there were tons of New Yorkers, Connecticut and Maryland types throwing loads of money around this summer. It was nice to get a piece of it.

          Thats so true Nelle.  As bad as I do feel for many people that have been affected by the economy there is still large money in the system and all honesty my business has picked up greatly since the start of this recession.  People are still spending money but they are looking for the best bang for their dollar so I look for ways to provide that.

            There will always be money in the system..... there always has been, and always will be. That is why I am not too worried about the recession, money goes around in circles - that circle has just slowed down significantly.... a recession is a readjustment.... People were drinking Champagne, Caviar and going on holiday through the last major world recession - and they will in the next.

            Not worrying about the recession is easy for me to say without a mortgage, but I am thinking a lot longer term......

            I know it sounds bad, but people are giving up on things like hubpages because it is only making them 50p a day...... my hope is that I have 1000 hubs by the time economic recovery really starts..... innovation through adversity is the best way through.

            If 100 hubs made me £3 a day today, and £9 a day in 3 years time........ those that didnt write those hubs (and blogs etc...) during the bad times, are going to be playing catch up when money starts moving around a little quicker again.

            Thats just my take anyway wink

    It's up and down for me. The last week of August was bad and I missed a payout by only a couple of dollars, but now my traffic is picking up again. Back to school, the holidays, who can say?

    Well its the last chance for much of the world to enjoy their short summers before the crap weather (for example, back to school monday for many kids around me). So people want to go out whilst they can instead of staying in on the net.

    It really is just that simple. Even hubpages forum is slow today.

    It is also Sunday of course, which is a "day of rest".... internet for many people is not a pleasure, but something they use to find information or something they need to buy.

    Whereas I love the internet and spend probably too much time on it, the three people I live with at the moment probably use it for a max 1 hour per day - and never at all at the weekend.

    They are the type of people that dont even understand what adsense is, and thus the type of people that would be going click happy on ads looking for their nephews birthday present etc etc....

    Its absolutely typical and nothing to be worried about.  Traditionally for a marketer the month of August and half of September is terrible when it comes to traffic and sales.

    However after that the traffic starts picking up and look out for the next few months when internet traffic will rise greatly.

      Thanks for confirming this, somebody else mentioned this. Thats why I am working hard to build up my hubs in the run up to christmas and the long nights....

      I suggest that anybody getting down about traffic and earnings focuses on building up hubs for when things pick up - instead of checking their analytics and adsense every hour....

        Yep, that's the attitude. More and More hubs and backlinks. The only cure.

    What Dale said. Although at times like this I always feel like Chicken Little, thinking things will never get better.

    Somehow reading this thread gives me relief.. I am just few dollars away from my first paycheck ever. Damn it sucks had very low earning in the whole of september. I was wondering and probably giving up too.

      Oh don't give up.  I know it feels helpless at times but I have seen this same pattern for years now.  As a matter of fact even my work ethic falls off in August because I feel its time to do stuff like camping, fishing and stuff like that.  However it is time to get back to the grindstone and get prepared for the rest of the year.

    been hit and miss for me.  Start of school, labor day holiday and the like I think.  Although last week was great, this weekend has been horrible.

    I like your take Ryan and I sure hope you're right. You are a lot further away from retirement than I am but thinking long term is really the best approach.

    Ryan your smart to think in large numbers of hubs. I too am aiming for 1000 hubs, trying for 400 by the end of this year. When you get to around 1000 webpages, you're talking a serious website with lots of earning potential

      Well keep me informed on how you get on wink Actually, forget that, I can see before my very eyes lol

      I have also been thinking a lot about my bounce rate. An organic visitor reading 5 of your hubs is going to give you 5 times more chance of a click.

      So I am going to make sure that I have 10 hubs on each topic that I choose. For example, I have just done hubs on Earl Grey Tea and Caviar.I want to take that to 10 hubs about Caviar, and 5 hubs about Earl Grey Tea..... and hyperlink these together as smartly as I can.

      Somebody looking for articles about Caviar are likely to want to read another article about Caviar for example.... I really do feel that many of us (well, me anyway) could be doing a lot more with the traffic that we are getting....

      Anyway, race you to 1000..... despite you being far ahead of me lol

    If a person comes to a hub and clicks immediately to Amazon is that counted as a bounce.

      Very true..... I suppose that this applies more directly to my non sales pages then.
