Traffic to my hubs now very low, Why?
About a week ago, I noticed traffic to my hubs drastically reduced, most importantly traffic coming from the search engines. I was getting like 40 organic traffic from google search engine but now hardly before I could get 10.
I went from around 100-200 daily from search engines a day to now around 20-30. It's the new Google algorithm. All hubs that made it to the first page in Google search engines for decent keywords were moved to the back. Right now my only traffic are Hubs that were on pages 3 to 5 that are creeping their way to page 2.
My 2 hubs which have been and is staying in the position page 1 and first on list on Google since September 2010 A.D. and April 17, 2011 A.D. is escalating from 5 daily views from 100 percent referring sites to 45 daily views and is rising with no sign of it coming back down. So the new Google algorithm is doing what it is meant to do which is bring down low quality hubs and bring up excellent quality content hubs which my 2 hubs does have and will always be push up higher and higher because of the excellent quality content and I was patient while waiting for my hubs to move ahead of the crowd in hubpages and it have now become a reality in my life. Patience patience patience, focus focus focus, to write and let go of only excellent quality content hubs which will stand on its own 2 feet no matter what changes occur with Google and hubpages.
Maybe your audience is too narrow. Look at the articles you write. Is there variety or do you tend to stay in the same subject arena. If the latter is true....then change your genre, create some variety, some fun, laughs, etc. That will eventually broaden your reader base. My base really began to grow when I added poetry to the mix. WB

I'm in the process of migrating my content from my blog to HubPages and just transferred an article titled "Top 50 Men's Grooming Blogs for 2014." I just switched this article to HubPages a few moments ago (using a 301 redirect). I'm already on the first page of google for the key term...

I attempt to try my best to improve my traffic and increase my earnings of Google Adsense, but it seems that I can still earn only a little per day. Do you have any tip and suggestion on how to get more traffic for your hubs at Hubpages?

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

Almost all of mine comes from this website. How could I get information out, and what could some other sources be for me?
