Where did all my traffic go?

    Where did all my traffic go?

    In the past couple days (week) I saw my traffic go down both from Google and HubPages referrals.  Is this a common issue?

    Some of my evergreen hubs that were getting very steady traffic suddenly get none.  I don't recall reading about any changes on Google recently but even if that occurred I wouldn't expect that to impact the HubPages referrals as much.

    Don't feel alone my friend, this is happening to all of us. There are many glitches that need to be worked out. Hopefully, they are doing so now.

    It surely did not come my way, actually my traffic must have followed yours, wherever they are heading!
    Let's keep our doors open for a happy, hopefully prompt return.

    They all went to me.  In the past 30 days I've had 4,294,968,735 page views.  Sorry, but my hub is better than your hub.  Just kidding.

    Check your hub views right now. 

    Honestly, I do not know I'm relatively new and only have about 2,000 total views.

    No, it is not happening to everyone. Would you like a real answer? You only have 7 hubs, at least that I can see, and unless you are really lucky you are not going to generate good traffic (depending on how you define it) with such a small number.
    In addittion, the titles of those that you do have are not search engine friendly. It might help to ask Marisa Wright or some of the other experienced hubbers in the forum what changes you need in the title.To generate the most interest in the forums, ask a specific question about improving your titles. If you just ask "where did my traffic go?" the people you need help from might not respond.
    Good luck with this issue. It is one that affects us all, and one that we can all improve upon. Keep trying!

      I wonder if this is part of the problem.  I have 25 hubs published (still not a large number) and more in the works but I had a nice trend of daily traffic on 5 of them and suddenly saw it cut by 90% after seeing similar traffic for months.

      Try asking Marisa or Misty Horizon on the forums. They know a lot about this subject, unlike me!It may be a temporary problem, but from what I saw the hubs are okay but your titles need a lot of work.If the titles are not good no one will see the hub
