I have noticed a considerable drop in traffic today; I suspect its the reporting system. Are others having the same experience?.
My traffic has increased over the last couple of days. I'm sorry your traffic is dropping off today, but then again everyone has fluctuations in traffic.
I wouldn't worry about it.
Thanks for the reassurance- the traffic over the last couple of weeks has at times been very stable and sometimes like today drops-off a lot. MOre Hubs wills be on the way.
Funny you should say that, but my views are up by about 350 compared to normal today, so I am in the opposite situation. Usually I get about 1300 - 1400 views a day, but today mine are on their way to 1750!!! Strange eh!
Hi Cagsil, lovely to hear from you too. I've been really busy on my veggie allotment for a good few months now. Will be around more from October onwards I reckon (once the veggies are coming to an end). In the meantime I just have to grab an hour here and there to spend on hubpages and catch up with my mates.
WOW! Been a while!
It's great to see you in the forums!
Hope you're doing well.
My traffic has not so much dipped as remained steady the last couple of weeks. I am normally accustomed to seeing my traffic rise, so it is quite annoying!
I was experiencing a good traffic rise however that's dropped today.
But it was a non-evergreen hub that took off randomly so I'm not surprised.
But traffic can go up and down as can clicks. My last three months have been $12, $9 then suddenly this month I got to $25. Completely random at times!
Stupid ? I know, but,I have visitors but no clicks? Do they only show them after you made your first $100 or is no one clicking? Thanks
No, they show within hours normally, however, do not expect too much too fast. Most of your visitors are probably Hubbers (who rarely click on adverts). It takes time for your hubs to creep up the Google Search engines, at which point you will get clicks on adverts from general Internet users who find your hubs. Most hubbers don't see any income in dimes or pence for at least six months so just keep writing quality content and it will come. I am also working on the assumption you have already signed up with Adsense, Amazon and Ebay and added the affiliate codes to your account, as otherwise you will never make nay money at all regardless of views.
Hope this helps and good luck.
Thank you...I did adsense and amazon- not ebay though as I guess I don't "qualify?" Anyway- patience is not one of my strong points, but I will try.. Thanks again!
Adsense is the one most useful to you anyway, (although some might disagree here on hubpages). I have been here over two years now and currently only make about £1.70 a day in GBP from Adsense, and as you will see I have published well over 200 hubs. The income does gradually go up though, so keep on writing and don't lose heart. It took me 18 months to reach my first payout with Adsense, (and well over 6 months before I even saw a dime appear on my Adsense account balance), but now I get payouts at least every other month,and this should soon be monthly. After that the monthly amounts should increase as my hubs and subsequent clicks therefore, go up. Trust me, when you reach you first payout you will be so pleased you will quickly forget how long it took, especially as you see the payments become more regular.
To date I have NEVER reached payout on either Amazon or Ebay, but I guess this all depends on the type of content you write.. i.e. Product reviews with relevant Amazon or Ebay links may well be lucrative if you can stand the boredom of writing and researching the reviews!
I've noticed a definite rise in traffic to my hubs. Perhaps Google is up to something.
What is traffic and how do I get some.I have a hard time handling the many readers I have now...all both of them...cant afford to pay them much longer...guess I'll have to start clicking on my own hubs...Boo Hoo...
i feel the same too. it drop quite alot but i seen this a couple of times. i guess it is just random and based on luck. just my 2 cents thou.

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some...

So far I've mostly been relying on writing good content and trusting people to find it, but after a spike this summer, my traffic here at HP has collapsed to some rather depressing levels, considering the number of hubs...

Possibly I overlooked the answer to this question in the forums, but I have noticed over the past three weeks at least, a significant drop of at least half of my traffic views during this period. And of course a...
