Seems like we are all bleeding pretty bad right now. As I search for some of my huba, I do notice they are still there. However it is certainly not like it used to be. If the drops keep happening I'm going to bleed out.
I do feel that there will be more opportunities opening on the internet, but this is scary right now.. How bad can it get?
How bad? Well, 'usually' when Google updates their algorithm they slam down hard and then slowly loosen up the thumbscrews so many websites see traffic trickle back.
This time it seems like they specifically targeted sites like Hubpages so, who knows, maybe it'll stay this way...and they haven't rolled this agorithm update to .co.uk and other local G searches yet so expect it to get worse before it (hopefully) gets better if you get traffic from those SE's too.
The thing which really sucks is that all the shuffling about hasn't improved the results any, in fact, they look worse in most sectors I monitor but all G. seems to care about is that they can throw out a press release or ten to say they've tackled the 'problem' of content farms. (and replaced them with scraper sites and other garbage...bleurgh)

My Hub "People Almost Met: Lily at the Pool" recently had a hub score of 100 and stayed at the level for about two weeks. Now it is in the 60's. It has lots of comments and about average views (for my hubs). Anyone know what I can do about this?

1. Sites such as "tools dot davidnaylor.co.uk/keyworddensity/" feature very prominently in the links list ("links:URL search") and appear to store huge list of links on servers. Could Google be mistaking them as "link farms".2. Subdomain staleness. I have noticed that...

The hubs that used to get 50-100 visits a day are down to 10-20 now. While most of the hubs have not been hit as hard, others have. Have you been affected by the update, too? What do you suggest to recover from it?

I just finished my fiftieth hub. Am I on a harder scoring system now? My profile page hubscore dived today from 97 to 92 in two hours.. Have I done something wrong? All I have done since is comment on a couple of pages, so what changed it so drastically. I have seldom been this low.My hubpages on...
