Almost all of the hubber who feature on the "success stories" page are losing massive traffic, why?
Does this mean that overall HubPages is losing steam? Does google not rate HubPages as highly as it use to?
The massive traffic drops here are mostly the result of the Panda and Penguin updates over the last two years. If you look up HubPages.com as a whole on Quantcast.com, you'll see how the site as a whole was hit very hard by those changes.
The site has still not recovered and you'll find many people in the forums reporting traffic losses during the summer of 2012.
Oh! I didn't know that the updates have affected HubPages so drastically. Does this mean HubPages.com is slowly running out of steam or is a recovery likely? Thanks for your answer.
As Google keeps changing things and HubPages keeps trying to respond, we'll all just have to wait and see. Really, you should follow the ongoing discussions in the forums if you want to know more.
Massive traffic or not, that looks much better than mine. They seem to live on Hubpages!
Even if Hubpages is losing steam due to the Panda and Penguin updates, it is still the best place to get traffic. I've tried two other sites and my articles just don't place as well in the Search Engines.
I just finished reading an article this morning about how we need to find other places to get traffic besides Google. My question is where? Nothing else seems to compare.
The only other site I see a lot around my hubs on the G is 'suite 101.'
I often see eHow ahead of my hubs, unfortunately.
I actually get a lot more traffic from Bing and Yahoosearch than from Google. However, I'm not sure if the amount of traffic that I get as a new hubber really compares...
My stats are increasing again. It went from virtually zero back to where I was before. I was seriously thinking of throwing the towel in if it went on much longer.
I think we need to just sit it out, keep the faith and bite the bullet a bit longer.

When Panda hit I was a newbie so was not affected directly. Buy When the Penguin swooped down on us I was badly affected. I though those hubs that were doing great would never fully recover. The hubs I saw taking off...
