    Where have all my readers gone?

    My daily reading average has dropped by 50% over the past week.   I am wondering if there is an adjustment or recent occurence (apart from Pinterest which is now fixed) that has happened.

    I saw a similar drop in traffic to my hubs last week as well.  I know there was another Google update on October 5th, Penguin #3 I believe.  Google says it was a minor update that impacts 0.3% of English language queries.  The drop  could have been the result something else but any time my traffic drops immediately after a Google update, I am suspicious.

      I just looked at your profile and it shows up no content. Why's that?

      Exactly that. I looked at the colleagues profile and it read 'no content', 0 hubs. Indeed where have all the hubs gone!

    My guess this fall is still from the newest Panda, panda 20 that rolled out on Sept 27th.  I also didn't see the effects immediately.  This was a pretty major update, about 2.4% of queries affected.  I don't think this site gets badly hit by Penguin, in general people here don't go overboard in building links or other over optimisation practices.

    Last week I had a slight increase, but yesterday and this morning I've been absolutely hammered.  5 and 4 views, what the hell is going on. I've never had a lot of views but this is unbelievable.
    Hope the experts can give us a clue.

    Where a lot of ours have gone. Readers who may be interested in our articles come and go in waves. If you have articles on education, for instance, and it's the start of the school year you'll more than likely get a good share of viewers depending on your subject. Understand what I'm getting at?

      I am used to a pattern with some hubs but this is an overall drop so I don't think it's that.  Anyways thanks for commenting.

    Mine dropped by about 90% a few weeks ago and hasn't recovered. No idea why.

      That's quite the hit.  Hope it recovers.  I am still way down.
