    Has anyone else seen their numbers drop during the month of March? If so, why do you think that is?

    No, I have not. My numbers have finally come up after a four month stay in the sandbox. But I am sorry if your numbers are dropping.

    I really fluctuate.  I also haven't been posting hubs nearly as often either.  I think that explains it more.

    Yes. I don't know but I've tried revising, adding all new pictures, most of my own, making sure I have separated capsules, keywords, tags, and added polls or graphs and this helped some but not much..What about you Billybuc?

    Without a doubt; I have tried everything I can think of and the numbers have dropped dramatically. Either I forgot how to write or the contest this month has people too busy to read other hubs.

    Yes, I've seen a slight drop in page views in March. Don't know why other than I haven't been publishing as frequently as I would like. But I've decided not to worry about it. Too many other things on my plate to expend energy worrying about it.

    My numbers always drop when I am very inactive.  If I comment on other hubs, ask and answer questions, share hubs, write at least a hub a week, and hub hop from time to time, my numbers stay pretty steady and even increase.

    I think you hit the nail with the thought that the contest has people busy asking and answering questions.,

    My traffic is miniscule, but I did hear on the net that Google is going to start cracking down on over-optimized content. Here's the article about that: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2401732,00.asp

    I have gotten most of my views in march, but considering I posted most of my Hubs in March that would make sense I suppose. I am going to try and post more in April and see if I can't get more page views. I hope one of these days I can find time to do a 30 day challenge.

    I believe a lot has to do with all of the work they have been doing on the hub pages. Somehow they re-set all of my e-mail settings and I wasn't getting notices. Greg

    Hello Billy, In March my numbers went up and so did my adsense clicks and HP ads. Maybe because I am in the March 30/30 Challenge, I really don't know.

    The numbers will come back up again for you as well.

    Yes, my numbers went down.  Maybe I should change topics from time to time.  Also, spend more time on other hubers hubs.  A lot of other hubers write really good hubs.

    I was worried about making an amazon sale, didn't look like it was going to happen - so finally I sold an organic mushroom growing kit...

    People are waiting to find out what the deal will be with their income taxes - "deal" not included.

    I have seen a decrease in earnings and hits in March as well, but in the past year I have had many sporadic ups and downs. Thank you for your question.
