    I don't know what to make of a marked and sustained drop in traffic on my hubs.  I have a relatively high hubscore and a number of hubs in the 80's and 90's with a great deal of original content.  While I never had overwhelming traffic, I always had over 100 page views per day until recently.  Tonight I hit an all-time low of 15!  No, this isn't something to brag about...  I have fans, I use social bookmarking, I'm a nice person.  I just don't know what's going on.  Any suggestions?  Help!!!!

    I've noticed this too.  Some hubs aren't getting indexed or are getting deindexed from Google.  I've tried many different things, but can't get them indexed again.  I'm not sure if this is a Hubpages issue or a Google issue.

    The drop in traffic is as expected with the removal of the adult hubs, the revenue will also drop for the same reason, a little patience will be rewarded, and the stats and revenue will go up again soon....jimmy

    Thanks for the assurance jimmy. I was getting a little worried about this.

    First of all, thank you, SunSeven, for your prompt reply and Jimmy, for your reassurance.  It's good to know that in time, our traffic will head back upwards.

    I have noticed a drop in my traffic also.  However, over time these things (traffic) seems to go up and down.  Building quality hubpages with lots of backlinks to them really helps in the long run.  Good old fashioned link building and seo seem to be the way to go.

    There is some belief that google modified their algorithm a bit recently and that those changes may have hurt user generated content sites like HubPages a bit.

    However, because around the same time we started removing adult content and had some other minor structural changes, its a bit hard for us to say with any certainty.   We've seen maybe a 15-20% drop in traffic to hubs (excluding adult).   Some hubs have been hurt more, some are actually doing better.

    same case here too there's a big drop in traffic to my hubs in last 2 weeks..
    well the removal of adult hubs is a good step for the site quality maintenance but its afecting the traffic so much..
    i used to get 10,000 pageviews for all of my hubs each day ..of which 35% are from google..
    now its less than 4000 a day,with google traffic falling to 15% a drastic change in traffic these days ...hope this gets fixed soon..
    paul, u guyz plz do something to get traffic as per the new algorithm of google...
