What do you do when traffic to your hubs drops?
I haven't been here for too long, but I've noticed that everybody reacts differently to a drop in traffic. For example, I try and write more to deal with it, but some people write less, some don't write at all, some delete hubs, some edit hubs, some move their content and some do other things. I'm curious how you react when your traffic drops, and how that reaction worked or didn't.
I just try to stay that course and continue writing Hubs. Sometimes I'll use Google Analytics to see how people are finding my Hubs and then I strengthen those Hubs and write similar ones. If there is a huge drop that looks like it might be a technical glitch (I haven't had a huge drop yet), I'd probably investigate, check the Forums to see if other people are experiencing unexpected traffic drops or see if the Hubs team has made any announcements. (As an aside, I'm curious about how people define a drop in traffic that would cause them concern. Is it 10%, 20%, 80%? How big does the drop have to be before people panic?)
I have been wondering the same thing. I write often. I experience ups and downs in traffic all day. It's confusing. I usually ignore it and try to make changes in my hubs to see if that will increase my traffic.
I think it really depends on what is causing the drop. I would investigate that first and then take the appropriate action.
If the drop in traffic is due to slipping in the search the search rankings, then try a little backlinking to your Hub. If the traffic has declined because it was a short term popular topic, then there's little you can do but write more Hubs.
Recently I ran into this problem and was close to deleting the hubs that weren't getting any traffic. Than what I did instead of deleting them was look into keywords through good adwords, seen what was good and what was not working for those hubs anymore.
I also used the hubpages title tuner to get the titles a little better and added in some keywords into the titles, this helped out a lot because out of the hubs that weren't getting any traffic, they are all getting around 10-20 hits a days and I see that increasing a little more as time goes on. Another good thing I have done with some of those same hubs was re-write some of the information in there and make them more outstanding.
Sometimes it only takes a little time and patience to figure out what is going to help increase your traffic to your hubs. Not everything that someone else does is going to benefit you.
A few other things to try is type something into google, bing, yahoo that reflects what your non-traffic hubs are about and see where they stand page wise, if they are in the top three pages than it could be your keywords just aren't working for that hub and you might have to re-do them but that is easy once you have an idea of what is missing.
Writing more hubs wont compensate for the ones not getting traffic of at least it didn't work for me, the new hubs got their own traffic as you want them all to get some type of traffic to pull in some type of revenue, Try the topic tuner and the keywords and see if that helps your dropping hubs.

This has got to be some sort of joke. This site is not an easy place to make a fast buck. I knew that when I started. I then did the apprenticeship. It hasn't done me one iota of good. I have written well over 70 hubs,...
