    So, I hadn't been here very long. I was just starting to see solid, consistent traffic from google and a small, but consistent earning. Then BAM. Google now gives me less than 10% of my page views. Bummer. And $0.04 over the last week, double bummer - without a 'first wave' invite to the new ad program (although I never counted on this for significant income, it was nice to get something for the work).

    BUT, all is not lost. I noticed that my fellow hubbers are still reading and commenting on my hubs.

    Even though it doesn't generate income, it makes my writing feel less useless so...

    Thank you!!

    I feel your pain sister!  For the vast majority of us in here we have a difficult time learning the ropes.  It's hard enough without the Google thing coming on. sad

    New here too and my hubs have a but died in the last 36 hours.  The Priest is by the bedside administering the last rites to many of them. 

    But, as TahoeDoc said, the feedback from the comments in regards to my writing skills has been most welcome and has given me a much need boost to expanding my writings.

    Thank you everybody for your support and comments...

    I understand, the choices are wait or move. I'm waiting for now, just a bit bummed, because I like this site, but wouldn't write just for me to keep reading my own stuff over and over. That's why it made me feel better to see hubbers' visits.smile

    If I was a patient person, I wouldn't have picked a field where all my medications and interventions work in 30 seconds or less, LOL. big_smile

    This has always been a good lesson for me - not getting instant results, but I don't have to like it tongue

      I'm trying...If I actually counted on this for income, it would be much harder, I think.

      Good luck to everyone!
