In the last few weeks I have noticed that my hubs when when first published will have a very high viewing and then about 3-4 days later and for a week or so afterwards, they will drop to zero. It isn't just certain hubs, but any that I have written. They have never done this before and it doesn't make any sense. My stats in the last three days have not oved all that much either although I know they are being read becasue I would get a comment and it not show up on the stats page.
Anyone know what is up with all this or has anyone else been getting this too?
It's always been my normal experience that I have a spike of traffic when a Hub is first published, then the traffic bombs. The initial spike is all Hubbers, and I have to wait till my Hub moves up the search engine rankings before I get any more visitors. I've seen complaints that Google is taking a long time to index Hubs so that could be the reason behind the lack of traffic, however....
This sounds weird - maybe you should email the HubPages team.
Actually for the first time, my hubs are doing well. Hope things work out for you soon
Have you got Google analytics? The figures arn't an exact match with hubpages data but the trends are the same. You can at least see if the highs and lows are real or not.
Yes I have that. I don't know how to use it, but I have it at my Google Adsense account. I just thought it weird that they would all of a sudden fall like that. My older hubs are having no problems and are getting views, but it's just the new ones that seem to take a nose dive.
I guess no one knows or has had these problems. It's been 4 hours since someone (ME) posted last.
Usually when you first publish the hub, you get the spike from email alerts that your fans click and check out as well as other hubpage views. They drop, and eventually (sometimes) pick back up.
Lately, I've found indexing quite slow. I guess it's just me. But I have 7 days worth of hubs not indexed. They just indexed my 2nd hub from 8 days ago today. They'll probably index the next one tomorrow. One a day, but 7 days behind for me, which is hurting my traffic.
Not sure if that's something you've looked into.

I started the Hub Challenge on Sept 28th, so my challenge will run from Sept 28 to Oct 28th making 30 days. I thought I would take a moment out and post what progress has been made so far. Well since you aren't supposed to discuss Adsense earnings that's out, but as far as traffic goes....Sept 1st...

I love to see what people were looking for when they found my hubs, it helps me choosing new titles and see which questions I left unanswered.I was hoping to see keywords under Traffic Sources, but I have to click on each hub and then stats, and then keywords.... quite a long process to check them...

Analytics tells me that I suddenly started getting traffic from something called the Maven Coalition. Since I don't have a website on Maven, are my hubs being advertised there? How can I figure out where specifically on Maven this traffic is coming from?

My lenses were transferred to HubPages only about 30 hours ago. I am pretty disappointed with hubscores of my lenses (but not too surprised) and very happy with the traffic, which has been (in last 24 hours) on the same level as a full week on Squidoo.Google is still my best friend and it looks...

Instead of being addicted to the Stats page and getting frustrated by its inefficiency, I suggest we get rid of hub scores and hubber scores and stats. Just keep us informed on a daily basis of earnings. This would free up time and resources on getting the site to work fast for all devices with...
