    Traffic has dropped and I can't find my hubs in

    Traffic was a steady 200 vpd to almost 0 in just one day. I've checked for duplicate content thru copyscape as well as copy paste into google browser. In fact, it seems that my hubs have disappeared. If I copy paste a paragraph of my hub into google search, it doesn't show up unless I add the term 'hubpages' to the search. Is this an update thing or something wrong with my page? I've been on HubPages for 6 months and ridden out each Google update with no problem so far. Also my profile score has gone down a little more than usual.

    You are not alone. I noticed the phenomenon too. It changed just over the last 5-7 days. It's like publishing in the dark. My new hubs are barely noticed and I wonder how many I am missing. I have been publishing daily, so it was a very noticeable to me. I strongly dislike the change.

      It is so strange that still I am getting zero traffic from Google. I can look for my hubpages site in Google search and find all my hubs listed so I know they are indexed. Also checked Webmaster Tools and no warnings or problems are listed.

    Are you still having this issue? I am new to hubpages and I am having this same thing happen to me. If you figured it out let me know, thanks.

    My hubs never fully recovered. From couple hundred down to 0 but have leveled off between 20-50 per day, total! Took out Rss capsules, amazon and anything I felt might be construed as extraneous. I hope to make a real difference with my hubs reaching as many people as possible so it is disappointing. Good luck!
