OK, did I do something wrong? My traffic has dropped dramatically! Is everyone just packing and cooking for the holiday? Or did I do something wrong?
Also windy in some areas - power failure here half the day.
But my Adsense is decent today just the same, so a few thou are on line.
When it happens to me, usually it is followed by a dramatic growth in traffic a week or two later, to higher levels than before the drop.
My adsense has done well today and hopefully traffic hits 1100+.
Hopefully there won't be any power outages or were ******
I've only been here about 8 weeks but from what I've experienced so far, some days are just a little "off..." It might just be one of those days!
You've only been here 8 weeks? WoW I'm so used to seeing you on the forums I thought it was longer! And 149 hubs? Good going!
Yeah, lots of credit I thought 67 was a respectable number. 150 though, thats great!
I'm sure it is just a bad day today, my views are down a little as well.
How many views are you averaging a day now Mikey?
And 67 is a good number. You're probably ahead of about 90% of the accounts on hubpages already - considering only about 15% have hubs at all and at least 30% or more of those must have less than 10.
14020 views The last 7 days, 1700 today.
I got a very trendy topic right now, the views will continue to go down, well it is at least what I inticipate. I haven't made any new hubs in a couple days.
Dayum! I'm averaging 1100 a day on this account, although they're mostly evergreen. You're beating me!
Well I got some trendy topics, I am sure the views will go down more either way I look at it. I just got a 75 cent click this morning, but usually I only get 5-10 cents per. $10 in the last 7 days.
LOL thanks... Yeah, I've formed a slight addiction to HP. I enjoy both reading the forum threads and hubs... as well as creating hubs when I find the time!!
Thanks for the credit to my hubs, but you figure a good majority (about 25) are dedicated to my novel, so those don't really count I suppose...
And I DO think 67 is a respectable number!
wow 150 hubs in that amount of time? Amazing. Thats like 75 per month at that rate
I expect it to get worse throughout the holiday season.. From what I gather though, this is typical. I joined last January, so I haven't seen how things work while everyone's out shoppin' and what-not.
But yeah, I just assume that it's everyone getting ready for Turkey-Day..
I know I am.
Things get better through the holiday season, much better!
YOu might see a drop in traffic over thanksgiving itself, but not by much, and expect traffic to rise dramatically afterwards!
I hope so, cause today is a big drop.
But yes, the US is getting ready for Turkey Day.
I wonder about the rest of the world though.
You know the internet is global...LOL
Traffic drops can occur for a number of reasons, just strap in and ride the waves. One of my best dropped last week due to a slip in rankings but has regained position now
Typical traffic for me on a Wednesday is about 10,000 Uniques. It's 8:00 pm and I have 8700 Uniques, so I don't think it is a particularly "off" day.
To everyone who hasn't gone through the holidays yet as a Hub author, or who did but is seeing something different this year:
Wild swings and bounces in traffic over holidays are nothing unusual. People spend time with their families, go out partying or otherwise get distracted from the internet.
Storms and power outages also come into play.
The smaller a data set you watch, the more erratic it will appear. Look at weeks not days, or months not weeks.
I don't see any difference. My traffic is very low with 10 to 20 visits per day.
My hub traffic always starts going down towards the end of the week, and then peaks again on Monday or Tuesday, so am seeing nothing unusual
I guess I'm luckier than you guys because I only get traffic from Hubbers that I have posted to or otherwise hassled. So by controlling my daily stalking activites in this way I am able to maintain a reasonable average of between 1 and 5 visits. Storms and holidays don't really affect me, if I notice at midday I have received no hits I just fan mail a bit more.
Peaks and troughs - smooth them out.

Has anyone noticed a marked change in their hub scores? I only noticed today so not sure if it happened today or in the recent past.. But some of my hubs have seen a marked increase from 70's and 80's into the 90's and even a 100...Is anyone else seeing a real change?

DearsSince 1st of August, all my hubs traffic dropped dramatically. I checked my ranking for some hubs that were always in the first page of SERP, however, they all GONE!!.Any ideas of what I can do to overcome this problem?Thanks

Bye bye traffic!My account has dropped from ~3000 views per day to 1700 (and still dropping). At least 1/3 of that traffic is from Pinterest.Google, what are you doing?
by Ness 6 years ago
I used to get in the hundreds daily for traffic, now in the last week I have been getting a mere handful. Today is at 5, one day last week was less! Thats overall traffic for all my hubs Ive checked my Google page 1 hubs and they are no longer page 1. I couldnt even find them up to page 5 (didnt...

My daily earnings have dropped drastically -- WHY? Is it because HP has pulled ads on my hubs due to the "unfeatured" hubs, which are mostly poems? Are poems not worthy of being featured and getting daily earnings? And WHY does HP decide what should or should not be featured?...
by Janis Leslie Evans 3 years ago
Has the HP algo changed within the last day or so? My hubscores are dropping all of a sudden, especially the lowest scoring hubs. Or could this be due to a sharp decrease in traffic? Maybe both? I just have a feeling after reading Paul Edmondson's hub that something drastic is happening to address...
