    I should have just said “Happy Monday”. I keep forgetting that international thing… smile

    Traffic is up compared to weekends, but still nothing compared to previous days. We will have to wait more to be sure everything is on the right track.

    My traffic is up too, but only because the weekend is over. I am still 25% down on what I was a week ago. And my earnings have tanked, and by a much greater rate than the loss of traffic would suggest:(

      That's because US traffic is the most lucrative, closely followed by UK, which we can expect to lose a lot of too sad

    So far not a big increase in traffic from google.com, I will set it at the end of the day.

    Traffic still pretty steady. Some hubs doing better than others. wink

    I am showing the slightest improvement in adsense earnings. On February 23, my Hubpages adsense earnings tanked to $2.39, yesterday they rebounded to the abysmal level of $9.69. Today I'm at $3.20 at noontime. We'll see.

      Well my post certainly wasn't happy.

      I know that the global change will be coming, and that will probably make me cry.

      Although not literally, I don't do crying, but crying inside wink

      Gracey, why are you getting depressing? Make sure you are dancing along with the Google Dance.

    I don't think the word happy was used in my post.

    Sounds like drinks all round then - my traffic has been up a bit today, but nothing to write home about

    Outside of HP, I'm seeing no drop in traffic or CTR, but I AM seeing a major drop in RPM.

    Of course, that could be just end of month advertising budget depletion.. but I don't usually see that at my site, so this is a bit different.

      Could people be pulling their ad budgets while they wait to see what happens and if the dust settles?

        Gosh I hope so.

        Ultimately the only thing more important to Google than the search experience is the advertisers.

        If they object to changes then that could be the way back!

          Back to what? Junk as usual?

          Is that what you really want? To compete against artificially promoted junk?

          To find that same junk when you search?

          Yes, yes, I know: you are still finding it now and you are NOT finding good stuff and SERP's are all confused.  But are you really wishing for Google to just give up and let it all go on?

            If I had faith in Google to sort out the rankings then I would be supportive.

            As things stand I am seeing results which are just plain unfair or highly irrelevant.

    OK maybe not happy, happy is a strong word to use so soon, but it sounds like your traffic has bottomed out.

    I am trying to concentrate on my own stuff, but these forums are soooo alluring dammit.

    Surely plenty of advertisers are going to object to the top spots being taken up with Amazon, Target and Walmart. I've been doing loads of research trying to understand the winners and losers, what the rising websites have the the falling ones don't etc etc, and I have returned plenty of searches where Amazon makes up 3 of the top 10 results....not helpful for searchers, and not helpful for anyone else on earth trying to sell that product that may be advertising with Google.

    I don't want it to go back, I want it to go a little further forward than has done. And then stay still for a bit so I can figure out what rose to the top.

    The emphasis has definitely been taken off keywords in titles and in the text, which has made me write more comfortably all weekend.
