    Down from 200 views per day to 5 views per day in a week. This is so shady!

    Is it worth continuing to write on hubpages, or is their no formula for success? I am beggining to feel like there is some sort of unfair control on the views I receive.

    Lately there has been some site wide issues with traffic loss. The staff has a thread in the forums about it, saying they're working on fixing what might have gone wrong with some updates.

    My views were cut in half, but in the past two days, I have seen an improvement. Every day it gets a bit better.

    In my experience here, I have learned to sit tight and wait for things to return to how they were. It's also a good idea to go through your hubs and see which ones might need to be updated. Even a slight tweak can help you get more views over time.

      Mine continue to be flat at close to nothing. Whats most odd is the fact that one of articles was reeling in 120 per day and suddenly its at 0. I think I have plummeted down google's rankings because of the black out sad Doh!

    I agree. My traffic went down a lot and I was having trouble getting on the site a few time so I assume that was what was going on.  Since then my traffic has recovered.  My advice is to just keep writing.  It took my about a year or a year and a half to reach consistent pay outs.

      Im just going to leave it for now. I was really excited when my traffic rose to 200 for the first time. It was just very disappointing to see them now flat at nothing across the board.
      I might feel differently next week though. Thanks for the advice

    I know how you feel, I had the same issue a few of weeks ago; Google traffic was almost nonexistent for about 10 days then it returned as suddenly as it had gone. Now it's in a less dramatic slump. It's dampened my enthusiasm I'm afraid. I'm not giving up though. I hope your traffic returns soon.
