Can anyone look at my Stuff and tell me why Google has totally blocked me.
Until a week ago, I was running daily Google traffic of > 100 on weekends to >175 on week days. Thn, in 2-days, I went to 0. For the last week, I only get 0-3 a day. I use the same structure for all of my Hubs, so one is pretty much like another. I used Copyscape and found only 3 articles that were plagarisms of my work. I removed all pictures other than those I took myself. Is it timemformme to fade away as aHubber, and move on to just writing for myself? Maybe finish that book That I never finished? Color me very frustrated.
same thing has happened to me. I have lost all my traffic. I sent hubpages a message and they said this,
" Traffic fluctuations will continue on new subdomain accounts for several weeks, until search engine algorithms assess the quality and reputation of your individual subdomain. You may want to verify that your Hubs are easy to read, are not benefiting from dubious back linking practices, and are not keyword stuffed. Let us know if you have any questions."
I guess we just have to wait it out.
I did my best to look at your hubs and see if I could see any problems of any sort. I don't see anything obvious on the hubs themselves. I looked at your source code and your google analytics number seems to be in place, so no problems there.
I took a few exact sentences from several of your hubs and searched them. When I searched for an exact sentence from your Florida hub, the hub showed up in the 5th page of search results. I did the same thing for another hub and the hub showed up 3rd on the 1st page of results. My point - Google has not totally blocked you; you do show up in search engine results, but perhaps you are not ranking as high as before.
I also checked your page rank for your subdomain: donbobbitt.hubpages.com. Your do have a page rank, so you are not blocked. Your PR was 2/10 and mine is 2/10. Hubbers from the success stories Patty Inglish and Marye Audet have a PR of 4/10. Steph Hicks has a PR of 3/10. So, you do exist as far as google is concerned.
Does most of the traffic that you had before mostly come from a couple of hubs or is it spread out? I ask because if most of your previous traffic was to just a few hubs, maybe the source of that traffic is the problem. For example, a popular inbound link may no longer be functional. Or is most of your traffic from organic google searches?
Or perhaps the traffic you had was seasonal in some way. You write a lot of RV hubs. Is RV traveling more seasonal?
Of course the cause may be none of these things, but these are possibilities for anyone experiencing a drop in traffic. My guess is that Google has perhaps gotten to your subdomain and is examining its content. This drop may only be temporary.
Hang in there Don. I for one would miss your writings - like the Sunday morning talk shows and politics one you just published.
