Does it seem like readership has dropped way off?
It seem like readership has dropped way off... My readership is down 75% over the last few days. Are other people experiencing this too? I am getting views from outside of hubpages but not many from in hubpages.
My readership tends to fluctuate wildly. I think it has to do with how busy people are - getting ready for Halloween, etc. Also has to do with weather - nicer weather tends to keep people outside. I also suspect there may be system glitches from time to time that keep people from visiting. Hopefully all our readers will come back and read all of the wonderful hubs they missed while they were gone.
Yes, I've noticed it, too. I wonder if all the very active hubbers are very busy writing for the contest? I know I have had less time to read the last few days--but I'll catch up! Also, I don't know how up-to-the-minute the stats are. I've noticed that they stay the same for hours sometimes.
I agree. I know I haven't been reading other's hubs as much because I'm doing a big project at work... But why are other people not reading?
I'm still at pretty small traffic, but I'd quadrupled it since September and was beginning to feel better about my daily views -- then over the Halloween weekend it tanked.
I'm getting a little Google, Yahoo and Bing love, but mondo drop-off on HP. I manage to pick up a bit with each new hub and then it drops faster than it did last month. Discouraging -- last month I was beginning to have hopes for this for the holidays.
And now there's the news that I won't be able to use my Amazon account here after the beginning of the year. Yeah, I know, there's the option of the HP Amazon acct. Not the same thing. I think I'll wait and see if there's any improvement before I add any more content on HP.
I think I am in the same boat as you are Hikeguy! I do not know if it is from the contest or not but much like you... right after halloween my readership fell about 75%. Even entries in the contest have poor readership... so not sure but this can not go on all month.

Anyone here used to write for Suite101? They've gone through a number of permutations and seem now to have disappeared altogether.It's not just casual interest; I'm trying to track down why the income has stopped (that'll always make a writer pay attention!) I'm a former writer for...

Am I taking crazy pills, or is there another google update going on, or what? My traffic dropped on 8/8/13 from about 150 views a day to 0-9. My top hub is getting zero every day now. My hub score dropped from 90-something to 76. No overpromotion, no suddenly unfeatured...

This has been going on for about six weeks now. People have told me that they get no notifications when I have published a new story.

My daily earnings have dropped drastically -- WHY? Is it because HP has pulled ads on my hubs due to the "unfeatured" hubs, which are mostly poems? Are poems not worthy of being featured and getting daily earnings? And WHY does HP decide what should or should not be featured?...

For the last couple of days I have seen several Down For Maintenance notices and found that hubpages has only been like this for seconds because it has happened after I have tried moving from one site to another here and if I try again I have gained access. Is anyone else having this strange...

Yesterday my traffic was over 1000, today it's massively dropped to 90. I have no idea why?
