    Anyone experiencing a decline in earnings for the past week?

    If you mean hub earning programme then yes but it is marginal. What is declining is the page views. In last 5 days it has come down to about half or so of the average of last two months. With the page views half soon the earnings would come down dramatically.

    I have seen the same, although not by half. I was getting between 500-550 views ad ay pretty steady. They dropped of dramatically, but as strange as it sounds, still earning about a dollar a day.

    Yes, my views have dropped some. I try not to worry too much. It's just the ebb and flow of internet traffic. Google's recent panda refresh may have something to do with it as well. Check out the forums...there's some good information and a thread about the traffic drop. So keep writing and it will all work out in the end!

    Google Panda took a bite out of a lot of people's bamboo. My views are starting to come back up now, but slowly.

    Actually, my views have been increasing. I have been writing some posts to my Wordpress blog and linking them back to my hubs as well as other peoples' hubs on here. So far, so good. I guess I'll try to keep this up if I can stay consistent, who knows?

    I haven't been paying attention to my view numbers, but I noticed my earnings dropped about 11-20 cents a day for the first couple weeks of September.  however, this past week my earnings have bounced back very nicely, making up for the previous lack (YAY!)

    My earnings have really never been high enough to drop. They picked up when I started sharing my Hubs on Google and Pininterest, but I still have not reached my first $50 payout.

    My views have dropped by 1/4th to half of what they were about a month ago.  I am just hoping it is a Google thing and that Google will pick up my keywords again. I notice with all my hubs, it takes awhile before I start getting a good, solid stream of Google traffic.  Just hoping this dry spell does not last too long.

    No decrease here. I've seen an increase. So far this has been my best month. That isn't really saying much since I'm only up to $7.99 for the month... but that is already a 40% increase over last month and there is still about five days are so to go.

    Why am I so excited over such a small amount of money? This is crazy. It doesn't make any sense. I know... I know... I know... plug away for two to three years and see what happens. Still I don't understand why I'm happy about this. Its almost irrational.

    This happened to me last month. On about the 10th of August I noticed that most of my hubs were getting 1 to 0 views, and this is even hubs that have been performing really well. Initially I thought it was a slump but I ended up with 0 views on all my hubs for a week at which point I panicked and went to Google to check it out.

    All my hubs that were on page 1 of Google had not only disappeared off page 1 they were nowhere to be found on Google at all!

    After much research and asking the community (there are several forums covering this topic) I took matters into my own hands. I went to each and every hub and did an update and republished them all (luckily I only have a few).  That same afternoon my best performing hub that had vanished from Google was back on page 2 and within a day back to page 1. My hubs are now all performing steadily again.

    I’m not sure if the updates and republishing is the solution but it seemed to help me. I hope this helps. smile

    I saw a major influx of traffic in September, it's now, October, that I'm seeing a great deal less traffic. I'm hoping it comes back on the rise. I think this might just be a slow month, not a lot of activity going on from what I can tell...

      It is possible that everyone is so focus on the election, they are not reading anything else--just looking for info to support their candidate or to oppose the other candidate.  Plus school is in full swing, keeping some hubbers pre-occupied.

    Mine has dropped significantly since the last update from Google.  It has been going  down for about a month or so.  I am staying optimistic, and hopefully we will see a rebound soon!
