Unfortunately, yes.. I have lost around 40-50% of my hub's traffic after the Google algorithm update!
I had an email earlier from YouSayToo website that explained a major google application caused a 15% change in rankings on certain sites. It appears that original content get better rankings within the software algorithm. This may have affected you in some way. I understand many others are experiencing a set-back. I am too new to notice any change myself.
I know a lot of people have noticed a change due to Google's changes. A friend was making about $100 a month on the Associated Content Website and that has dropped to pennies.
I also wonder if we will see a drop in traffic now that the weather is clearing and people may step away from their computers in favor of playing with the 3 Dimensional world.
I have an increase of 1150% in traffic for my 0 hubs that gets its traffic from 100 percent referring sites. No complaints from me.
I notice drops and gains. . . .every single time I check my stats. You are never really done with a hub, you can always improve it, or just freshen it up - or link it to yet another dozen websites.
I have %70 drop for my Triond articles and remarkable percentage for my hubs here.
New algorithm changed my mood badly. I have nothing to do unfortunately.
It's because of google's latest update to it's algorithm, hubpages seems to be the worst hit out of all the major article sites... Don't know where i stand now to be honest, I've had hubs drop from google pg 1 down to pages 4&5 and some have disappeared from top 100 results altogether.

Is it another panda slap? or just a random temporary decline?

Has anyone else noticed the same on their hubpages traffic?Though traffic has been low lately, I'm getting more traffic from Bing than I'm getting from Google.

Has anyone else noticed a complete loss of Google traffic in the past two or so days?I usually have more views from Google than any other source, and now I only see zeros in my traffic for Google. Is it a glitch or am I doing something wrong?

Admittedly I don't earn much with the Hubpages Earnings Program - I earn less than a dollar a day. However I noticed since the beginning of this month there was a been a significant drop in my earns per day, they are less than half of what I'm used to getting.It's a little worrying as I already do...

Just joking.What else can I do?No point in checking stats. If you think I'm being pessimistic - well yeah. I'm a Brit - it's what we do. We don't do success.Think Eeyore. "I knew it would come to this. No one likes me anyway. I'll just sit here in this damp corner...
