    My traffic is back to normal. What about yours?

      Definitely not. Getting somewhere near half what I was getting.

      Traffic/revenue a little bit higher on this account, but like someone else said on another thread, I'm actually making a little more than I was same time last year. So, traffic and money not as good as it was a little while back, but better than last year. As someone else said, maybe it's seasonal.

      Since the beginning of October my earnings have gone down by about half.

        Same story here, mate. It's disheartening to say the least.

          About half for me as well. And I was at my highest ever, so it's really disheartening (good word)!

            My traffic is about 60% of what it normally should be. It’s disgusting.

    Visits off around 5% ... within normal daily range.  September ad revenue off 20% from peek in August but I'm not complaining.

    Better but not where it was before Google SNFU.

  4. Butterfly67 profile image91

    No, still around 30-40% down.

    Slowly, but surely.

    Yup, that best describes it. "Slow, but surely."

    Mine isn't back to what it was (still 25% down) but some of that might be seasonal. I'm not complaining though as my traffic is still very good.

  8. eugbug profile image97
    eugbugposted 16 months ago

    Still 25% to 30% down on last week. Some articles have returned to normal and one has more daily traffic than before.

  9. melbel profile image91
    melbelposted 16 months ago

    And way back down. Darn.

    It's even worse today

  11. Susana S profile image95
    Susana Sposted 16 months ago

    Even worse here too.

    Anybody has any clue why this is happening? Lots of noise online but no clear indication why so many sites got hammered.

      Load time, text-html ratio of indexed pages (something like the panda update).

      I took a new client who was hit by this update and lost 50% of his traffic (one of the top German recipe sites) and now traffic and rankings are up even better than before the update. All I did was deindex his category pages, tags and created AMP pages and boosted desktop load time as well.

      This website is not like the HP niche sites, no automated tag pages, and stuff. But HP has some of these elements that can potentially be fixed too.

        So, you're suggesting that the traffic drop has some sort of connection with the recent Google update?

        1. lobobrandon profile image89
          lobobrandonposted 16 months agoin reply to this

          Haha. Not suggesting, stating. Most people on this thread and the other one that discusses the traffic drop also see the correlation. Correlation doesn't mean causation, but when your traffic from google drops and you lose rankings after an update, that's cause.

            Thank you for clarifying it for me. How long does it usually take for things to be back on track when something like this happens?

            1. lobobrandon profile image89
              lobobrandonposted 16 months agoin reply to this

              As long as the issues Google is trying to concern is fixed or until the next algorithmic update that doesn't penalize the wrong websites.

    Hmm, nothing much we could do if it's a pagespeed thing. Guess we have to have faith in the HP team to address this.

    My traffic is experiencing dramatic nose dives.What is the reason?

    1. hclpd profile image94
      hclpdposted 16 months agoin reply to this

      New Google update. No official word from Hubpages yet, though.

    Improving, but not that much, as they were earlier.

    Much better now, let's hope for a much better week of traffic and earnings. The storm is passing over, Alleluia.

    1. hclpd profile image94
      hclpdposted 16 months agoin reply to this

      It hasn't recovered for me. Here is hoping that everything will be sorted out in the end.

    I have 10 HP profiles, but it's difficult to find a definitive pattern. I am down 15 - 25%, I would guess, but it's uneven. I'm hoping HP can give their opinion, as they have a much wider overview, as well as the technical expertise.

    It was a little better yesterday, but back down this morning.

    Traffic go up. Traffic go down.
    Traffic go up. Traffic go down.
    Nature of the beast.

    I'm not even going to check the traffic from now on until I get some positive news from the Forums. It's out of our hand anyways.
