Anyone else have lots of downward pointing blue arrows for your hubs on the account page?
My hits have drastically taken a dive this past weekend.
Yes I have. I usually have some and a couple of red arrows pointing up. For the last week, everything has been pointing down, while my page views have been going. Up also, my earnings 41 cents so far this month has not changed in about six days. Something is messed up, but they will probably get it fixed eventually--they usually do.
Definitely LOTS more than red ones.. now that you mention it, it's been a while since I've noticed many red ones on my account page. For the most part I've got no arrows and and definitely more blue ones than red. I've been hearing a lot about low traffic issues lately.. I wonder what's going on.
My arrows are always a roller coaster. I always have lots of blue arrows, but I also have red arrows, too. My hubs tend to jump up and down for no apparent reason. I try not to think about it too much.
I have had ONE page view from Google in the last 24 hours. This is a 100% improvement on yesterday where I had none. All my hubs will be going snoozy soon if this doesn't change - I just get a few views from other hubbers. I think it's happening throughout the site, and maybe some other sites, but I wonder if all those who do product reviews and/or how-to hubs are faring better. I only ever got a trickle from Google for each hub - or less than a trickle, a slowly dripping faucet - but getting nothing at all is demotivating. However, I'm waiting to see if matters improve.
yep I am noticing some blue arrows and no arrows, last time I saw a red arrow was about 5 days ago. Hopefully what ever is going on will stop soon, I shall continue adding a couple articles per month and promoting elsewhere.
Yes, I see a loads of them surrounding almost each and every Hub of mine. Again, you know it happened. Google is the real culprit.
Sometimes, I wonder if there was no monopoly...
I'm the same as jeannieinabottle, lots of blue arrows at times with some red and then the trend reverses again. But quite a few hubbers have mentioned that they feel their traffic has slowed down quite a bit over the last week or so. Perhaps then it's an overall site thing, rather than just your own hubs taking a dive?
Go through and edit your hubs, especially if you dont have a caption to your photos. Your photos need caption for google to recognize them, it says its optional but i added caption to all of mine and now i have views for all my hubs. If you have too many links get rid of some. Start adding in your own pics because if you add a lot of links to pics that counts as a link, and the more links you have the less juice your hub will get. Try this out and see if it helps any of you like it did for me.
I did not know about the links part but I link to my other hubs, so I will remove links, only one hub of mine has a blue arrow but then again I only have 8.
Also make sure to ping each hub and your profile...and then whenever you edit your hub or make a new one ping it again.
Just revamped almost all my hubs..for whatever reason they were getting ZZZ's even though comments were still being made..so hopefully you will check out the revisions...as far as blue arrows, what do they represent..yes I had them too...
FYI I only noticed this since I hooked up to Google...so I unhooked..will see if it makes a diff...anybody else notice ?

I recently signed up for a TripAdvisor.com account. The thought of using it to promote any of my travel hubs didn't initially occur to me when I signed up. My husband and I like to read reviews of potential travel...
