My page views have been consistently going up and up over the past couple of weeks, and then today, WHOA! Just a trickle all day. Anyone else experiencing a drop in traffic?
I have. I was just thinking it may be an off day or something.
Mine are up just a touch - probably go to below normal by night
About 30% higher than the average over the last few weeks. I'm with LeanMan and wilderness - we must be grabbing everyone else's traffic.
Pretty much normal for me with a bit of an upward trend (although I've added a few hubs recently, which would account for that).
Mine are slightly above my average for the past 24 hours, in fact not too far off of my record.
Mine always go down before they go up...massively. It's just Google dancing around.
Great decrease the past few days. Almost like its holiday time.
where was your traffic coming from? Traffic from Hubpages usually drops after a few days.
The decrease has been both HP and Google. Today better than yesterday, but still weak...
it was normal until i went in the bath two hours ago when one hub set off space bound ( well for me anyway)
no idea why, but hope it continues-
No, traffic has risen, but I attribute that to my backlinking efforts and upcoming joint ventures!
Actually, yesterday was off a bit for a wednesday.
I don't know about the rest of the country, but here in NE it was a perfect day to skip work
2 weeks and 15 hubs is WAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaYYYy to early to start counting views and thinking you have traffic trends.
Dont even ask yourself that, for another 2.5 months minimum.
Your traffic is most likely HP based and your articles are not even close to having a solid position in search results.
way to early ... keep building content and your portfolio will be much less prone to drastic visible fluctuations
Just now seeing my traffic starting to head in a happier direction.
Usually will get some Hubbers traffic for the first 2-3 days, then die off to a trickle, then either steadily grow or happen a little faster with spikes here and there.
But overall, traffic is growing (from big G and other linkage) and growing larger every month for me.
It is great that I have already begun getting page impressions on September 11, 2010. Thank you. Go in peace.
Thanks so much for the advice about being patient. I will try to remember that the next time traffic takes a turn. Just got my first click today! So there's at least a silver lining.
These page view drops are like a 'drop in blood sugar'. You feel all weak and weary.
It's worse when you go from a high of 400 views per day to down to 80 views per day. I try to average out at 150 p.d.
Everytime I hear someone complain traffic is slow for the day it reminds me of my farming upbringing and how farmers always complain about how terrible ag prices are. This reminds me of a joke.
1.) A farmer and his wife see the doctor as they prepare for their first child.
Farmer: Doctor, I have three things I want my child to have. They are very important to me.
Doctor: I see. What are you expecting, sir.
F: First, I would like a son, doctor.
D: I think we can accomplish that.
F: I really would like my son to have blue eyes.
D: I think we can do that, too.
F: Doctor, could you make my son a farmer?
D: Hmmm. That is a tough one, but I think I can make it happen.
Well, nine months go by and the happy day arrives. Our farmer sits in the waiting room while his child is delivered. Soon the beautiful sound of crying resonates through the air. The doctor rushes into the waiting area.
D: Sir, you are the pround father of a wonderful baby boy!
F: Thank God! Doctor? Does he have blue eyes?
D: Oh, yes sir, he does. The deepest blue eyes I ever saw.
F: Yes! I am so happy, docotor. But, is he a farmer?
D: Ahhhh. Well, let me go back and check.
The doctor leaves and after an uncomfortably long wait the doctor finally returns.
D: Sir, I have no doubt your blue-eyes son is a farmer.
F: How do you know he is a farmer, doctor?
D: Becuase he never stopped crying the entire time I was in there.
And a second farmer joke.
2.) A Farmer's Prayer
Day 1: Dear God, please let corn prices go up so I can sell at a good price and pay my mortgage and other bills.
D2: Corn goes up to $2.50 a bushel.
Dear God, if only you would allow corn to go to $3 a bushel.
D3: Corn is at $3 bu.
Dear God, if only I could get 4 bucks a bu for corn.
D4: Corn is at $4.
God, if only $5.
D5: Corn is at $5.
Lord, if only $7.
D6: Corn is at $7.
D7: Corn drops back to $2 a bu.
Lord, could you let corn go back to $7 so I can sell this time.
Well,today (Sat) is much slower than usual.
But these things happen now and then. I always worry that I broke something, but usually it is just a fluke day.

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

Anyone experiencing a decline in earnings for the past week?
by Howard S. 6 years ago
Is anyone else seeing a strange spike today? I've been getting less than 10 page views per day lately, but it's over 500 today and still rising. The source is undetectable using Analytics, Webmaster Tools, or HubPages Sources. I'm still getting 0 from Google and less than 20 from HubPages.What's...
