    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, watching my traffic grow each month since the last "disaster" period, only to have the bottom drop out. Not again!

    Nope ... but had a 50% drop in revenue from Hubpages.

      That's not happy news. Since my best hub (LESS  than 50% today of its daily traffic prior to my sudden drop) is also my best moneymaker, it's already decreasing my daily earnings.

    Not at all, Jaye...a slight drop in revenue but we're only talking about 10%.

      Bill, you have a much higher volume of hubs (terrific ones) than I do. I suppose I'm counting on a few hubs on this site for traffic and revenue while having "too many irons in the fire" overall to write (or finish) more. (Pardon the cliche.)

    Traffic does seem to go up and down--often radically--for no obvious reason. Some of it is related to the seasonality of some subjects, though. I'm seeing anything garden-related swing upward right now. This is the time of year when gardeners are browsing seed and nursery catalogs. Maybe some of your stuff is more seasonal than you think?

      Thanks for your response, blueheron. I do have a few seasonal hubs, but my best-performing ones (including the absolute best) are evergreen. That's why it's such a jolt to see my traffic drop about 50% after watching it thrive.

    It seems a lot of people have been suffering with this Jaye. I know it's probably not what you want to hear but I'd just be patient for now. I can see you are an established hubber with good content. Just keep writing regularly and it will work itself out in the end. Obviously if it continues for a month or so then a little more research into potential problems might be required, but I'd hold tight for now.

      Thanks, nutritionhub....I should heed your counsel since I've experienced the drops before and they finally resolved. I think the sudden drop shocked me since I expected my numbers to keep climbing as they've done for a few months.    Jaye
