Well, I write because I love to write... so the money part is just an added bonus. The drop in traffic hasn't put off my love of writing or the level of enjoyment I get from participating in the HP community.
Also, I have faith in HP that what they are doing is best for all of us. It might not seem like it right now, but it will get better. The way I look at it is like this: when you clean ~ I mean REALLY clean... it looks like a disaster at first, but by the time it's finished, it looks fantastic! So with all of the new changes, drops in traffic, and all that jazz... I just look at it like a "deep cleansing" that HP is doing & when they get to the point they are working towards ~ we're going to see an even better traffic flow than before

If you came into Hubpages with the intent of only making money, unless you are content with making nothing and putting in a TON of effort for 1-2 years, then you're in the wrong place. You have to get up to about 5-10k views/day to make anything worth talking about
From what I've seen, you get about $1 for every 1000 views, give or take 300
Don't worry about it if your at less than 1000 views a day, just keep writing (if you love it!) and keep editing your backlinks and keywords/tags to help Google redirect everyone to YOUR articles.
My views per day have never been anything to shout about anyway so I simply stopped worrying about it. It didn't take long to realize that I wasn't going to make a ton of money writing for this site so it's strictly a hobby for me at this point.
I've created a list of hubs to write to help me decide what to write better so I have more time to create better hubs. However, my schedule is not making it easy to publish hubs on a regular basis. If it isn't a philosophy exam, then it is a statistics exam.

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned...

produces: anxiety!C'mon, Hubpages! I've been a good boy. I've improved my hubs. I've been "awarded" a Level 2 Commentator (oh joy.) My personal story of near death and survival is consistently coming up TWICE...

Am I losing money from my writing here on Hubpages?Although my hubs have been badly hit by another Panda or a Penguin update and the earnings from my Hubs are at their lowest in a few years, I cannot say in all honesty...

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you...
