Since "the changes" and those sleepy-hub things my earnings have dropped by a factor of 10. Yes 10! My 'score' dropped from 100 to 80. Why? I seem to have been unindexed or something and I can't work out why. Why, for example is this hub unindexed? http://manna-in-the-wild.hubpages.com/h … tification
I totally agree with your statement Manna in the wild. It certainly seems that things here at the hub pages has slowed down to a snails pace since all of these changes. I've been keeping track of the stats since the beginning of September, and a lot of things seems to be going down hill here at the hub pages. You can do the math also and the numbers don't lie - http://goody5.hubpages.com/hub/Google-vs-the-Hub-Pages We will all just have to keep on hanging in here and see if some day things start to improve again.
I've got a hinky feeling that whatever algorithm is in use (by HP) to demote certain hubs—that probably deserve it—is possibly taking down some advanced highly technical articles with it if the keywords are not in the 'hot' list. But I can't know this. It's just a feeling.
