This is just weird. For the last 5 years about 25% of my traffic has consistently come from google UK, but over the last few days this has all vanished. (I'm still getting traffic from all the other google sites including US and Canada.)
Is anyone else experiencing UK traffic disappearing?
Everything normal for me, here in the UK. I've got the top five - USA, India, UK, Philippines, Canada - pretty much the same. Are you in the UK too?
Yes, I'm in the UK. My traffic from all other sources is as normal, it's just the UK I'm missing.
Check out Analytics for clues and think back, make sure you haven't accidentally clicked or adjusted settings?
I got through easily to one of your articles - Sunflowers and How to Grow Them - so there's no reason why others in the UK cannot.
Traffic from the UK seems normal to me, my second highest after the states.
Not sure if it's dropped or not. I don't keep track of it. Getting around 1100 over last 7 days, which is very little really.
My traffic has dropped from everywhere. I'm getting roughly the same traffic as two years ago, but the difference is I have a couple of hundred more articles up and running and almost all of them on niche sites. Income, of course, has plummeted as well. There's usually a seasonal drop after Christmas but nothing like this before. Boo hoo.
Yes, things are really not good at the moment. Both for traffic and earnings. I'm guessing HP/Maven have a plan, let's hope things improve soon!
Yeah, but you have to admit this writing gig is kind of fun. It sure beats going out and starting a rutabaga farm.
My overall traffic slumped for about six weeks but is back to normal levels now. A couple of days ago traffic was slightly higher than is usual but earnings for that day were very low - much lower than they have been for years. The situation seems to be worse since Adsense was removed and Google earnings incorporated into the hub pages earnings account.
Are you using GA?
I know HubPages stats seemed to include untracked UK visitors and the values were a lot higher than what GA reported. Maybe they don't do that anymore.
Edit, just noticed that's what you use.
So, my google UK traffic has reappeared, although overall traffic is down.
Looks like Google is rolling out yet another search algorithm update. The article below mentions that the UK has experienced particular volatility in search results from Feb 1st and ongoing for the rest of this week.

My overall traffic is normal but CPM has plummeted for 2 months to levels lower than for the same months in previous years, so my earnings have taken a dive. It happened at about the time that personal Adsense accounts were removed. I wonder if that co-incidental or is Google paying Maven less for advertising space?
Also, the Corona-virus may be making businesses cut their advertising. Profits are going to be hit as people stay indoors.
Apart from the Corona virus, nowadays I seem to catch colds regularly throughout the winter months - so I think that as I grow older my strategy may be to spend less time in enclosed public spaces.
My earnings have been so low recently that I will have to revert to taking a view that writing articles is a pleasant pass time, rather than income to fund efforts to stay forever youthful!

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column of text below the title returned to text based rather than image based. I think...

Hello! I'd like some advice. On my account, I can no longer see the Google AdSense tab on the Earnings>>Settings section. I can only see Hubpages, Amazon Affiliate and Google Analytics. Does anyone know why that might have happened and how I can get it back?

Needless to say, the link must somehow be relevant to the existing article.Anybody got any other reminders and tips?

Okay, I know I rant about earnings regularly but seriously something is wrong here. Just over the last four days - Wed views were down to a little under 900, earnings $1.41. Thursday my views were down to a little over 800, earnings $1.40. Friday views bottomed out to a little over 500,...

Hi fellow writers,Yesterday I recognized that the homepage of HubPages has a new design and in the mid of this I discovered a fellow writer with the most earnings here at HubPages. He's a member since 7 years, has published 55 articles which have been read over 1,000,000 times and he makes over $...

I am puzzled because even when my traffic gets a bit better (low for some, but still good for me right now), my CTR rate for Google is almost always nothing. I get something from Google about once a month, if that, with 58 hubs written. Does anyone else find the CTR quite poor for hubpages, or is...
