Where have all the hubbers gone?
Last year had a sign saying 50 million viewers, this year it was 38 million and now I can’t find the plug. I am hardly getting any new hubs in my feed. After a steady climb in total views, they have now plummeted to almost half and my new hubs no longer get as many comments. Does anybody know what is going on? Has anybody else noticed something similar? Just curious.
I don't really know, and I'm somewhat new here, but I would guess that people are creating their own blogs or quit because of the tighter control of affiliate sites. Thus earning less money.
And I do enjoy your hubs when I see them pop up.
I wish I had time to do more...unfortunately life, the universe and a recent PC crash have kept me from kicking off my new Hub year in the grand style that I'd planned on... HP needs to figure out a way for me to compose a Hub via Smartphone... Haha
Still here also. I've been busy writing a couple of science fiction ebooks with my #2 Son (Foothold on Terra-Bravo and Crisis on Terra-Bravo available on Amazon.com, b&n.com, Smashword.com and several other online ebookstores), so I haven't written many Hubs lately. I've posted comments in quite a few Hubs though.
I am also still here. My views are steady and I am still writing and publishing hubs. I haven't really detected a drop in activity here at HubPages except over the Christmas period.

Although I continue to have traffic to my hubs and was earning a bit of AdSense dollars, suddenly when April came AdSense earnings stopped. Could it be the addition of HubPages ads?

There seem to be many hubbers who have no published hubs and are still allowed to comment on other people's writing. While there are some hubbers who are simply new and asking questions before diving in, it seems that...

How is it that a hub on the 'common mistakes new hubbers make' can suddenly become not featured, in spite of the fact it has had 9 views in a day, 24 views in 7 days and 35 views in the last 30 days? I only replied to...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably...

It's been asked before. We need to be able to flag hubbers and not just their hubs. This person http://hubpages.com/profile/nicolexue has joined just to promote a herpes dating site, and I don't need her (his,...
