    While a new Hub is in the Quality Hub assessment process, does it lose traffic ?

    I was away from Hub Pages for a little while when life got hectic but I have noticed with the new way of approving a hub, it seems I don't get much traffic, are you noticing this too?

    I get about a third the amount of traffic as I got previously. I am not impressed with the new process and I do not know of anyone who is. After the 24 hour period to get it approved, we don't seem to get as many either. Never seems to be as many views as before.

      Becky, thank you very much for your experience.  I was feeling sort of disappointed because I spent a very long time writing a hub the other day, detailing it  and it sort of felt like after the first day or two, traffic fell. Sort of confused.

    I have noticed Hub traffic drop drastically since the new changes.  I do not think this has to do with the process but the fact that many Hubbers are leaving.  A lot of changes have not sat well with long time hubbers (I have seen lots of complaints with the over use of noindexing hubs, getting rid of google +, removing the RSS Feed and tags)  The only thing the approval process has changed is the ability to make advertisement money on the first 24 hours of your hub.  The new approval process really hurt the earnings of people who wrote on current events.

      Thanks  much for your thoughts Geekdom, I had been away long enough to notice that there certainly are some differences and you have helped to clear them up.

    I am not sure about the difference in traffic yet because I have yet to be approved. I wish that there was a way around the assessment all together. Good luck to everyone with an issue with this system.
