Logged on this morning, stats are up and the blue arrows are gone, lots of little red arrows
Let's just see how this pans out, good stuff always floats to the top, and HP are on the case.
Hi Case, that's good news. I also have a very small improvement, may be nothing but lets hope its a sign in the right direction.
Just even more sharp blue pointy daggers on my page - but please don't take it as complaint, some of them are justified.
Blue arrows still out number red on mine at the moment ~ but the reds do seem to be making a come back so I'm going to delay any wailing and knashing of teeth for a while longer.
Plus the sun's out this morning and I prefer to come to depressing conclusions on cloudy rainy days ~ so I might pencil that in for tomorrow.
In all seriousness though things do seem to have picked up a bit, plus it's the weekend when my traffic always falls anyway, so until around Tuesday it's going to be hard to tell the full effect.
I did notice a drop in traffics and AdSense earnings, then went straight to HP forums to read if that was my discrete experience or something big was happening. Then I got to know about Big G turning the Web upside down. Well, such things did happen in the past and will inevitably happen in the future, it's like sunrise and sunset.
Today I see some red arrows gradually replacing the blue ones, and traffic from Google is on the rise, though still lacking numbers from previous days.
Things seem to be settling down a little.
"Content is King" is my 11th Commandment, it never betrays me.
I'm absolutely positive about this particular Google update. Hubbers with quality hubs have no reasons to worry. Let's wait a week or two before drawing conclusions.
I also woke up to lots of little red arrows, and some on hubs that were totally unexpected. My traffic still hasn't recovered fully (and neither has my AdSense), but my Amazon earnings yesterday were back to normal. Yippeee!
Me too, but then again I've been downloading my hubs so I've visited most of them.
Blue arrows still out number the red ones here, and traffic still a bit slow, but got to take the rough with the smooth.
More blue than red, traffic up slightly, but its not coming from google.com so not hopeful at all.
Edit - oh and NO Amazon sales at all yesterday - worse day for months!
Yeah more blue than reds.. the Google.com traffic has just not come back...makes me blue
When you check your hub stats traffic in detail. Is the traffic from Google.com?
I have red arrows as well. But all of the traffic is from google.co.uk or google.fr or google.es. None of it is from google.com. And google.com is the only google that has the new update. Others will in the future.
Only one of my top hubs had zero Google.com traffic -- it was all from Google.au (thanks kiwis!) The rest appeared to have the normal domestic/intl split.
I'm not saying all of my hubs have totally recovered. I don't think I'll see that for a long time, if ever. But I am much closer to "normal" today than I was yesterday. Except for AdSense...
Nope. Google.com is at about August levels and considering that I began writing in June, that's pretty bad.
Interestingly, HP traffic is down the past few days as well - perhaps everyone is on here lamenting the traffic drop instead of reading my glorious hubs.
In my case the few red arrows are coming from google.ca - It has always come in ahead of the UK. Better quality of people up there, I suspect!
Careful what you say about us Brits, wilderness! For me traffic is till dire today, but weekends usually are. A few red arrows, but nothing to write home about. It seems to be the older hubs that are holding up, the newer ones are struggling to gain traffic
Well, if the shoe fits, CM, then you must wear it. If the Brits don't choose to read such obviously superior work, then the Canucks must be made of a better cloth! On the other hand, big G has declared that my hubs are substandard, so maybe I have the two of you reversed....
I'm not really seeing the difference in age. The few red arrows are on middle aged hubs; neither old nor new show anything but blue. Can't say it means much, though, as the red is all on hubs with little traffic anyway where even a rise of 2 or 3 views results in an arrow.
My traffic has gone up very slightly but I am only getting about 1/4 of the traffic from google.com that I would normally get. Google UK unchanged (as you would expect). I have tried to analyse which hubs have been hit the hardest and there is a higher percentage of amazon type hubs that have been hit.
I think you'll find that being the end of the weekend that is traffic getting back to normal, nothing more.
Unless your best hubs have risen in the serps again. Mine haven't.

Over 1/4 of my hubs have not been moved to a niche site. They do not have much traffic from Google, so it is not HPs fault that they have not been selected. There is nothing wrong with them, but they do not have "Google love" so are only moved in the slow process where I ask HP to move...

Having just started to look at webmaster tools this may be in the wrong section and it may be just my complete lack of understanding but;Google webmasters tools and the "index status" tab should return a graph according to their description that should continue to grow as pages are...

I've now written 52 Hubs but have less than 300 views from Google. I've read and taken the advice about titles, key words, niches, and high interest topics but am going nowhere fast. Is this the way it is or am I doing something horribly wrong? It seems like I'm missing a huge piece of the puzzle...

Hello Hubbers! I'm fairly new to HubPages, I've been here about a week now and love the community so far! Anyway, I was thinking, since we all have the same goal; to make money, get readers and help people, I thought I would make a topic for us all to discuss the best places to post our HubPages...

There is a real need to purge Amazon ads from this site but there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it.Pages that have multiple Amazon ads but get good traffic from search engines are obviously not a problem. Google will have hit them long ago if they were triggering spam filters.What...

I read the above quote on another thread and was wondering if anyone here can confirm that this is the case. Do you have long hubs, over 800 words? Are they doing well as far as Google traffic goes?Should I try to keep my hubs under 800 words?
