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 scurrying in our direction or is it just a matter of patience?
I've had a very small amount of traffic from Yahoo. It's nothing in camparison to the traffic I get from Google though.
It's kinda weird, isn't it? Well, hopefully they will be along some day.
yahoo took some time, but i'm now getting significant numbers from them... i'd say, wait it out.
Yahoo and MSN (MSN especially) are sloooooow to pickup new pages. Ask.com is a little faster, but nothing has a page indexed before Google does.
I totally forgot that Ask even existed. I don't think I've ever seen any traffic from them. I get a bit from AOL and Netscape, but I'd sure like Yahoo to pick me up. Oh well, maybe someday. Google has sure been sweet.
Ask is funny. All of a sudden there will be eight zillion results from them on Tuesday, while on Monday there were zero. They might be slow to get to a particular page or site, but once they are there they provide another 15% or so over whatever the current search traffic is like.
Yahoo seems to have little rhyme or reason to its rankings sometimes. Yahoo does seem to like hubpage articles, one of mine is the #1 spot and gets me decent traffic now.
If you get your own page like yahoo offers and I think MSN does the same you can add the rss feed links to your hubs and anything else for that matter on these home pages, oh and google has a homepage too that you can command to your will too, these updated links to your(if you do update your hubs that is!!)hubs will be good for the search engines and google traffic.
I myself have home pages in yahoo,google,msn and windows live not to mention other social networks!

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?

So in the past 6 months we have all endured a real rollercoaster ride thanks to the big G. Many of us are still really struggling while some of us have reached new heights with our page views. I am happy to say I am in the second group of people, my views are better than they have ever...

I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April 1st Conflicker Virus? I was thinking these two things can't be so harmful to my...

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...

yahoo is probably the second search engine after google. Does anyone get traffic from yahoo? Does it worth the time you register your hub to yahoo?
