    Anyone else experiencing a drop in traffic to their hubs?

    During July, August and early September, I was getting roughly 100 - 120 views a day to my hubs. However, I found that for the past month or so, I've been barely getting 30 to 40 views, if I'm lucky.
    I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing this?

    Go check out the forums. A large amount of hubbers are having issues with traffic drops.

    I agree with Peeples, there are discussions in the forums.  It is probably Google Panda 3.0.
    But, my views seem to be picking back up.  Saturday is usually my worse day for views and yesterday was a little above what I would have expected for a normal Saturday.

    I am experiencing exactly the same issue - my hub views have gone down drastically from 140 views per day to 20-30. All this while I was wondering what I did wrong?

    Peeples and Bankscottage have already summed it up!

    There are many threads on the forum about this.

    Google introduced an EMD (exact match domain) update on 27th September and everybody's traffic nose dived. Most webmasters were rather bemused by this as non-emd's were hit also.

    6 days later, Matt Cutts belatedly announced that a Panda update had also been implemented. Some are referring to this as Panda 20 as it is the 20th update.

    If that wasn't enough, they also running another Penguin update.

    In addition to this, Hubages staff have been making a number of 'improvements' to the site. Not all site members share the staff's enthusiasm that this is having a positive influence on site traffic.

    In fairness, with so many changes, it is going to be difficult to pinpoint specific problems until the dust has settled.

    Nonetheless, the forum is the place to read more about this.
