Have Your Earnings Gone Down In The Last Year?
This is geared more toward those who have been on HP for year/s and therefore notice long term trends, but anyone can answer for sure!
I've noticed in the past year that my traffic numbers have pretty much stayed the same as previous years, but I'm now earning about 1/4 of the money I used to. Has anyone else noticed this?
I personally will no longer write articles on here other than to direct traffic to my other sites. What about you?
You're not the only one who noticed this. My earnings drastically decreased from November 2015-present. This is beyond ridiculous if you ASK ME! Hopefully my earnings will be WHAT THEY USED TO BE. In the past, I was actually PROUD of my earnings. Now they are totally abysmal!!!!
Yeah, I hear ya! I used to be able to basically pay half my rent every month via HP, and now it's like not even good pocket money. It seems to be a trend that companies get to a certain size and go downhill Fast. This may be the death knell of HP..
my earnings had dropped since the stupid panda started, ever since, it takes me 5 months to reach the min payout
Although I keep on updating my hubs and they are all featured--but the earnings do not increase.
You have rightly pointed out that the traffic is consistent but the earnings have reduced in spite of the increase in the number of hubs that I have published.
Google's search engine penalizes hubpages as a content farm, so unless your content is the only one its search engine sees as an answer to the searcher's query or a high volume page that thus stays high in the rankings, yes, your content is penalized. Fewer visits equals less income.
Interesting question so I went and checked my stats - views increased by 8% approx but earnings only increased by 3.6% from 2014 to 2015.
For the first time in years (like over 5 years) I did not make payout..so the answer is a resounding YES.

It's disheartening to work so hard only to see your earnings drop to lowest than they've been in a long time. For the past two days, they've been about half what I was earning daily in 2017 and even lower than they were in January! Has this happened to anyone else and will it pick up soon?

I experienced a drop in earnings early in the year. As I've been here for eight years, I didn't worry about it, usually it stabilizes by Spring. But now it's April, and I am making about one third of what I was making a year ago, a huge disappointment.I have 142 articles and all of them have been...

I only write about one article weeking but I've written more than 450 hubs, so I don't expect a huge amount of income. I seem to get as much traffice now as I did last year, yet the earnings seem to be down over the past few months. Did something change as to how much Hubpages pays?
