The last 2 weeks I have had a HUGE drop in traffic..... anyone else have the same?
Seems most of the drop is from google.
I do not have much traffic, but the traffic I do get is seemingly directly attributable to the work I put in here on Hub pages.
So it is starting to look like the new Google metrics for content are rewarding new and/or new and improved writing.
Looks like only 7 of your hubs are featured.
Also your hubber score is at 1 so there must be some issue with your account.
Plus there has been a panda update in the last few weeks.
I have had that too. After they unpublished my last hub I unpublished all but 10. There are a few of those 10 that are linked to other articles elsewhere. I have noticed not so good things coming about of HP and their staff and finally said to heck with it all. I have over 300 hubs. I may put them elsewhere or try to salvage some and re-publish them. My hubscore, in just one day, went from 86 to 77, to 72 and then back up to 87. Now it is at 77 for the last 2 days. Not enough stability here. Moderators are not consistent. This place has been chaotic since it was bought out.
Funny thing, one of my earlier Hubs - written last year - has attracted a lot of attention lately, the one about Ragnar 'Lothbrok' Sigurdsson, 'booting up' the visitor figures on its own by about 200 in the last month alone.
The model railway pages have been doing well of late, too, but figures on 'The Saga of Hunding Hrothulfsson' have been languishing in the '0's.
I know PRECISELY why most everyone's traffic and earnings began to drop on March 15, 2013. The culprits were and are Panda and Penguin. Read http://copywriter31.hubpages.com/hub/Qu … -and-Myths for the answer!
You are welcome, Neil. The new algorithms hit hard on that day . . . I lost close to 60% of my average page views, but that is now beginning to come back.
Hey - interesting to note -- BING hits have increased

Has anyone else had a major drop in traffic during the past few days?Total traffic to my hubs has dropped nearly in half, or less than the traffic on one day (a week ago) to my most successful/most visited hub. What gives? Another Google change? It is so disheartening to update and tweak my hubs,...

My CTR at Hubpages has been taking a nosedive, about half from normal. I decided to not panic, figuring Hubpages was just experimenting with ad placements or something similar.However, it's been a month now, and still my click-thrus are way below my normal rate. I thought maybe it was because of...

I get quite a bit of traffic from Google, but for some odd reason I get nothing at all from Yahoo or MSN. I even took the time to submit a couple of hubs to both sites and still nothing.I was just wondering if its just me or if it is common among hubbers? Any ideas on how to get the Yahoo bots...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

Back in November I wrote a novel has part of NaNoWriMo. Is there anyone else in the same boat? If so, what do you plan on doing with your unpublished novel?Also I am possibly interested in either Beta readers or novel swaps and thought that the HubPages community could be possibly a good place to...

Has anyone else seen a dramatic decrease in their hub traffic?Where has all the traffic gone? Has anyone else seen a dramatic (as in 50% or more) drop in traffic over the last week or so?
