I don't know what is going on with my traffic the last few days.. I have seen a drop from 400 a day to 200, my stats froze earlier also.. my best hub was seeing 75 a day a few weeks ago and 30-40 the weeks after.. it has gone to an all time low of 8 this evening!
I'm not doubting that. It's just seen as foolish to open a thread about it. Especially, when you could probably find some other threads in the past, which have addressed it.
If you traffic is dropping then it is due to factors beyond your control. Thus, it doesn't need to be made public, simply because it is going to happen from time to time.
If every person opened a thread based on what you did, then there would be so many threads opened that there would be no reason to respond to any of them. What are you going to do? Post in every single thread that brings up the subject. Sounds like a waste of time, for which, could be better spent doing something more productive.
I saw these too! the peaceful spread of Islam on hubpages lol thats what I wanted to comment in those threads anyway, but I'd rather not waste my time in there! which could be spent doing something useful as somebody once said lol
HubPages Knowledge Exchange - Tragic drop in traffic
So, that does not make it a game. It is in exchange of knowledge. Yet, everyone insists on making a pathetic game out of it.
Games are PLAYED IN the Sandpit forum thread.
So, I guess that leaves one question- Do he want help? or Is it a game?(if game, then the thread needs to be reported to HubPages, so as to move it to the sandpit.
But, by all means, let's throw the rules of HubPages out the window, so everyone can just do what they want to do. Thus, anarchy reigns supreme, while the "business" aspects goes down the tubes.
No wonder why no one wants to come to the forum anymore. Points to the main reason many of those who were here, are NOT here anymore. Most of these people are STILL on HubPages, but simply do not want to be part of the forum community anymore, because of the childish antics of many.
Ok. Cags. I'm sorry. I was talking to Rich, not starting anything. I think I have been on HP for 9 months without ever being the cause of pushing anyone away from the forums. But thank you for just putting me off them. Take care.
Don't say that. He might start a new one! Don't mind Richie's duplicate thread, different day different issues, and indeed the stats here were definitely frozen yesterday as well, but puh-lease don't get that "peacefully spreading" guy started again!
One thing some of the oldtimers had to drill into my head when I got here is that traffic is an up and down thing. Monday you're up. Tuesday you're down, Wednesday back up again. (Okay Cags and Way...I can already hear the "up and down" jokes formulating!) Anyway, look at your traffic over the long run, see if it's trending up or down. I'm not saying ignore warning signs, but if you think something is wrong, hop over to "Official HubPages Announcements" and take a look. If you don't see anything there, take a bit and watch. By all means if you think something is amiss, post something. But you can work yourself into a frenzy if you let every traffic drop bother you. Like yesterday I had a Hub get hits out of the blue and it was my highest visited Hub. Today it's fallen, but that's because someone linked to it on a forum yesterday and now, that post has been read and most people that are gonna look at that Hub have already done so.
wow. I wonder what the forums used to be like. Traffic seems to fluctuate. I can only speak from two months experience, but I suppose traffic is somewhat like life in general. Sometimes you're hot. Sometimes you're not. And sometimes the system is at fault. Try to take it all with a grain of salt. My question is, how do you find time to keep coming back to the same forum for commenting, and participating in conversations? I guess when I figure that out, I'll become a real blogger. Namaste.
I'm not being funny here,the hubstats yet only change 3 or 4 times a week, if you are lucky.Not to mention hubs take over 24 hours to publish. No mentions about it on the blog, no apologies, it isn't like the issue...
So far, I've lost about 15% of my traffic, since Panda 3.3 began rolling out earlier this week! It's annoying as I'd only just brought some traffic back up by editing and deleting Amazon hubs after a post-Xmas...
Since HubPages is changing their focus to feeding their new niche sites, where will you be moving your hubs that don't fit the new sites?I highly doubt they'll make any new sites that have anything to do with any of the...
