Don't you think creating a sub-domain will decrease your traffic?
I mean If I crease a new subdomain then google has to rank them newly. Some of my Hubs are getting good traffic from google. I fear that creating a new Hub will decrease traffic. Tell me about your experience. I expect answers from old users.
I've seen a few ups and downs since the beta subdomain test started. I initially showed a 100% increase - then my subdomain name was changed to my username and I saw a dip below normal levels and a climb up to about a 50% increase. Then subdomains was rolled out to everyone and suddenly I was back to pre-subdomain levels.
However, this too has recovered and I seem to be moving up again and am back at 40-50% increase level.
One concern I have is that part of this increase may be due to google thinking the subdomain is a new site and therefore we get a boost - also the panda alogorithm is refreshed monthly (or at least every six weeks!) - so will this have an adverse effect on my traffic.
At the moment I am happy and I'm fairly optimistic that it will continue to stay steady or rise.
I haven't noticed any change due to the creation of new hubs - although my traffic in the last week has increased - I've published three 'quality' hubs IMHO - not sure if there is a link!
I don't know if I'm "old" enough to answer, but your traffic actually increases if you create a sub-domain. You're already going late and you have to create a sub-domain anyway. So its better to do it fast. Here is the traffic increase I saw after I moved to sub-domains.
Ultimately, there is no choice in the matter, tnvrstar. I think the possibility exists for increased or decreased traffic. Only time will tell. I feel powerless to determine the destination of how I or any hubpage participant will do. The only thing I do know is we are all in the same boat...come hell or high water!
The Subdomains allow us to be ranked according to our own worth...the worth of our work here.
It has been the single best thing to happen to this site since the site was created.

Possibly I overlooked the answer to this question in the forums, but I have noticed over the past three weeks at least, a significant drop of at least half of my traffic views during this period. And of course a...

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic...

Why have my views per day gone from 100 to almost nothing? I have published 49 hubs, 36 of which are featured, 12 which are not featured due to engagement and one because of poor quality. Does anyone else have a...

"Paranoia" must think some of you, and honestly, I used to think the same. I didn't even believe that this was possible, even though Google mentioned that they have ways to detect link spamming. But the...
