Why did my google traffic dry up?
0 views in the last 24 hours and I average 100 per day over the last month.
My traffic has also gone down considerably. If anyone finds an answer to this one, I'd love to hear it.
If I remember correctly - there was a huge article in the WSJ about Google changing their search software or some such thing - and small businesses were complaining bitterly because Google now determines for us what "spam" is. In other words, they have something akin to a new "filter" for websites Google believes are spammers - and it is now excluding even those who are not spamming. Several businesses in the article complained that they never spammed - they would just add their link to every signature (for example) but Google doesn't like that (obviously Google wants you to PAY THEM to have your link appear anywhere) so doing that - putting your link at the end of your blog - etc. would constitute "spam" therefore - Google would drop your website link to the bottom of the pile. One guy said his business would always be within the top of the search results, now - he can't find his own link no matter how many pages he goes to after trying to do a search with what used to be his key words. Maybe that is what your problem is for you both. I have to say, I hate Google anyway. Did you know that whenever you do a search - Google brings results Google THINKS you want. Not the actual results that are out there - but results based on your previous searches or shopping habits. So for example - if I am a libertarian, and I type in the words, "Abe Lincoln" my results would be completely different than if a liberal friend of mine typed in the exact same thing for a search. That is just one of the reasons I try never use Google.

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?

I been on a couple of days and pretty much all my traffic is from hubpages. I get a couple from digg but that is about it. How are people getting their traffic from google and other search engine?

I don't have big hub numbers but my Google traffic has gone from 40 - 60 views per day to nil and hubs that were in the top ten search results have suddenly disappeared.This is true of hubs I've had for a couple of months, and hubs I wrote within the last week.I've seen numerous comments about...

My latest hub is ranking #3 for a 200,000 searches per month keyword, and #4 for a 50,000 searches per month keyword. It has been there for at least 24 hours now, yet there wasn't a single visit from Google yet. What could possibly be behind this anomaly? Anyone else experienced something similar?

Has anyone else experienced this? If not, how can I troubleshoot it?Within the past 24-48 hrs, traffic from all Google sources (all countries) dropped to zero (0). I got one from Bing and some from HubPages. I had been getting at least 30/day from Google sources--not a lot, but enough for me to see...
