    What are some solid ways to prevent the pandas from decreasing the number of views your hubs get?

    I know that the better quality the more likely you are not going to get filtered out.  I want to know exactly what I need to change so I can try to prevent this form happening all the time.

    Even a perfect written hub decreases its views - this means there was no solid ways to prevent  panda's update. So hubber should create a hub intended for his readers not only for search engines crawlers and spiders. If he marketed it to some of his friends on social networks or on other bookmarking sites and his friends also shared it to his friends of friends - views will flow down like water to his hub pages.  Remember that there are million of writers competing one another across the Internet.

      You can share all you like, most people will say "that's fantastic" and not pass it on.
      LIke  it or not we rely on search engines not our warm market for income.

      at least you do your part - which means every effort you make there will be an additional views to your hub pages.  If you maximize to use all the social networks and bookmarking sites on marketing your hubs across the Internet will result more views

    Hey, what is quality?  What does it mean when a popular hub, say  500 a day ( non of mine reached that consistently) suddenly drops to ten a day when it has not been changed? The quality has not changed, something else has altered.

    I think there is nothing you can do to alter this. I suspect Google are altering ratings to favour the bigger advertisers and this is hitting us here. 

    My feeling is increasingly that Hub Pages is, in the long run, doomed.  It may take a year or so but it is doomed.

      Comments about how doomed something is are one sure way to make sure it happens. People start hearing about how doomed a site is, so they leave. Then it is doomed. A self fulfilling prophecy. HubPages is fine. Traffic slows on weekends, for everyone.

      When HubPages has phased out tags, my hubs views dropped. Each hub score dropped, my overall score dropped and my daily earnings dropped. I just thought that the word drop is just normal.
