    I've experienced a significant surge in traffic from Google in the past few days. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same thing? Hope it's not a nine-day wonder.

      I've had an increase in traffic and an increase in earnings. Haven't really done the math but I'm not sure my earnings have returned to normal though.

        CPMs are up slightly so earnings are a bit better.

          Yes, just went back and checked. Slight increase in earnings but it's still around a fourth of what I was making late last year.

        OK. Thanks for the response. Google has probably decided to smile on us again. Hope CPM returns to normal soon so we reap the full reward.

      My traffic is up again but things are a lot different right now with the lockdown. I think a lot of people are at home, bored, using their search engine and looking at things to keep busy.
      If this is a real thing, great.  I think you should wait until after the lockdowns across the globe, however;

      Probably, the recent Google core update has worked in your favor and given the improvements.

      I've been having a lot of success with Pinterest lately. In fact, the past two month have been my best ever, mostly due to Pinterest. I pinned a couple of your articles. I hope it gives you a little boost.

        ...tho honestly I've never had much luck with Pinterest either, haha

          I think direct traffic from Pinterest is generally poor, unless it's something crafty, or something that's likely to go viral there. HP factual articles generally don't do well on Pinterest, in my experience, even if they get lots of Google hits. But the social media backlinks can't do any harm for the SEO, can they? That's the main reason I tend to pin everything nowadays, anyway.

            This must be the explanation for why I've never really had it work for me. I get a little bit of traffic here and there from Pinterest but nowhere near the amount others claim. My articles are mainly informational, not too much in the how-to department. I pin stuff to get it out there though. But I hardly ever use social media for my articles.

              I also think that if you are doing it seriously, you want it to be niche-orientated. That means having a separate Pinterest account for each subject area. My niche accounts do better than my general Pinterest account.

                Okay, I hadn't thought of that, makes sense. I've just been making separate boards for different subjects.

                  It's better to have business account(s) too, if you don't already. That way you get lots of stats on what is popular and what people are clicking on. Business accounts are free, there's no charges for having one.

            Most of my traffic comes from Pinterest, but my writing is generally craft related so it figures.

    I also got advice to link work to Pinterest. It is good that it is working for some of the hubbers.

      I have large Pinterest boards and pin stuff but don't get a lot of traffic from there.  I think a lot depends on what topics you are writing about.  My Google traffic tanked after Christmas.  It has improved a bit in recent weeks, but not enough to throw a party for

        More or less same thing happened to me and I think a lot of people. Also, my traffic is not up to what it used to be either. A slight increase of 12% but  far from what it was in November.

        It's taken years for mine to pick up.

        CMHypno, have you tried repinning your articles?  My Pinterest traffic is way up since I started deleting old pins and then pinning them again.  This causes them to show up in people's feeds again.

          Thanks for the suggestion OldRoses, I will give it a try.

    I have the highest pageviews ever right now.  People in the USA are going nuts to get puppies - and they are interested in dog names. Of course the income or CPM is low, but since this is an active market for Amazon and others with pet supplies. we have a bump in revenues.
