    My Hub earnings were cut in half this month. Has anyone else noticed a reduction in earnings?

    I've only been with HP for 5 months, and I'm an Apprentice. Though I don't make much in earnings, they have been increasing each month. So, no, I haven't noticed a reduction in earnings. I'm sorry to hear you are.

      My experience is the same as yours, mine have increased steadily over the past several months. I wonder if being an apprentice has anything to do with that though? hmmm

      Christin - I see you're in the apprenticeship program as well. Hmmm. That would be interesting to know. Good luck on your continued increases. wink

      That's interesting about being an apprentice, when I did the course my earnings were increasing as you both mentioned. However, the last month has seen my earnings almost half of what they used to be. I hope it's just a temporary Google thing.

    Yes.  My earnings have dropped, but so have those of many writers here.  This usually happens when Google is trying out new formulas, holidays come up. etc/ and often is temporary.  However, if Google nailed you, it may be a long time before your numbers go up again.

    Hi Wiserworld,
                          I have noticed a small decrease over the last few weeks which I have put down to the fact that summer has finally arrived in the US and the UK which are two of my strongest performing countries in terms of traffic.

    Before dismissing the drop as seasonal or search engine related, I would check out how your traffic has changed. If the majority of your sites have dropped then it may well be due to factors outside your control. If one or two of your hubs have dropped a lot, then your hub may have been copied or dropped in the Google rankings or may be facing additional competition. In this case, I would investigate those hubs to see what if anything you can do (SEO keyword work, new title, extra photos, re-write etc) to improve it. Hope this all helps and also hope that your traffic bounces back, sooner rather than later!
