Is anyone else frustrated with the lack of updates on traffic from HP?

    How do you feel HP team is doing at letting us know what's going on with the site? Why the traffic decline? and what they are doing about increasing traffic. I've only seen 1 or 2 forums about the traffic from them and it was about the new amazon capsules causing issues. Do you feel like we should have more updates and more frequently?

    Yes it would be nice if they could be upfront about the fact that they likely took another big hit from the latest Google algorithm update and tells us their plans and how they are going to fix it.  HP staff works very hard usually to rebound after these things, but I am not seeing it this time.  I wish we could know more about what's going on.  Perhaps they feel their good writers may panic and leave in droves again like last time.

      I do believe that they are working hard behind the scenes. I don't doubt that, but I think the lack of communication about what's going on is definitely tanking the morale

    I was hoping you'd have a few answers to this already because I am fairly new

    It's relatively unimportant to me since mine really only stalls for a few hours late in the afternoon.  It appears to stall around 2 pm but generally updates again after 6 pm EST.  Then it shows a bit increase as it catches up and that makes me smile.
