About 7% higher than my highest traffic day since the algo-change, anybody else seeing this?
Hit 20000 for the first time post-crash for last 24 hours.
Yup me too. Traffic on the rise, in fact it's the highest since the crash. About back to normal numbers.
Yes, spot on, glad you mentioned this, my time tested best hub doubled its traffic over night extra 400 views
I agree on a slower level than yours. But why all of a sudden?
Slap relaxed? As a result of duplicate content being lifted a couple of days ago?
Maybe just a busy day web-wide though, perhaps somebody with a portfolio of sites can comment on their private traffic? I don't have a wide enough network to comment as to whether the increase is webwide or Hubpages specific.
I'm glad someone else mentioned it. Stats were stuck for hours today so obviously HP was working on something, then when they came back I've had a huge traffic spike.
Mostly from google.com and co.uk.
Hope its not an error.
I'm going to see what analytics shows for the whole of the 29th before getting excited.
But my traffic so far today, as confirmed by Analytics, is IMPRESSIVE.
If we are seeing a world record slap recovery time, then I suspect that we will see a few people regret their rash actions? Not that they were entirely unjustified....
Anyway, early days!
My AdSense isn't showing anything too substantial, impression wise But, its not realtime, so I will hold fire.
Think it may be a stat tool error?
I am up pretty good the last few days. Although I associated it with my writing prowess! J/k
I hope the trend continues!
My adsense is not showing anywhere near what HP is showing, but I'm not sure of the time lag. All those hits happened this afternoon when stats were stuck.
Analytics is showing almost as many views today as the whole of yesterday and considering there is still more than 12 hours to go, that's definitely looking up
My analytics is showing about 66% of my views for the whole of yesterday, which is more than it usually (well usually post-algo) shows at this stage in the day and would be consistant with my Hubpages stats. But, i'm not getting excited until I see the adsense impressions!
I think that adsense has been slow recently, I have been going to bed at 3am with one or two clicks showing for Excerptz, and the next morning it finishes with lots more. I put this down to lots of late flurries, but now I think it is the time lag.
Just posted a different thread - I'm seeing 25% increase in Google and Goolge.co.uk today - hard to tell if it's real yet as the analytics are only partial day - but based on my memory of similar times of days it does seem higher
I am now seeing a 58% rise in traffic compared to the weekend when it normally dips. It had recovered by about 20% by yesterday and the rest came in today.
Praying it is real!
Yes..has looked good since Monday and great earnings too!
And there was me thinking the increase I saw was just down to my own brilliance.
I also had my highest views on Hubads yesterday, but one of the lowest CPMs
I have seen high CPMs just after the 1st wave, and just after the 2nd wave. But my CPM now is a little higher than it was a week or so after the 1st wave.
It seems that each time they roll it out they get a bit of a boost, probably because the advertisers get a little excited.
The CPM that we seeing now is probably the 'norm', maybe we will keep seeing little boosts each time a new wave of invites is handed out. If so, fingers crossed that it is 3000 in next time, then 6000, then 10000, purely for selfish reasons
Actually, yes, it literally changed from mediocre to "almost acceptable" over the course of like two hours. Probably just luck, though.
hooray hope everyone will be in a good frame of mind now things are improving,
My traffic returned almost back to normal on March 19th, although it has fluctuated a little bit since then. If HP stats are accurate, today will be the best since the smackdown though.
Pre-smackdown, Google.com accounted for anywhere from 60% to 80% of my search engine traffic. Post-slap, it's been consistently around 37%. That has not changed one bit.
AdSense for my hubs is in the toilet. Matter of fact, it's so far down the pipes, even Joe the Plumber wouldn't be able to save it. Since I was in that first wave of the HP ads program, though, I don't know if that dip is from the slap or the new ads. SunForged is running a test now, and I'm waiting to see what he finds out and also to see where I net out at the end of the month with HP ads.
Amazon is down about 50%. My conversion rate had stayed consistent even after the slap for a while, but it since has tanked and my conversion rate is now only 5% to 7% -- dismal.
Had another blip upwards today, but as these have been followed by downturns, I am not getting excited. My views and AdSense earnings are still roughly 50% down - but it is still nice to see the red arrows again.
My traffic has increased slightly too but is not reflected in my adsense impressions. My blog imps are double what adsense is showing, so perhaps there is some kind of reporting error with adsense. Strangely my squidoo impressions are well down today, so not unless Google has changed something.
Interesting! My HP traffic is up about 25% today. I did an analytics comparison between today and a day last year which had the same amount of traffic and the stats are showing:
US traffic down 46%
UK up 39%
India up 61%
Canada up 54%
Australia up 62%
And all the other google's up 30% or more too.
Can't think what would account for these figures though
Why would all the other google's be sending more traffic than before?
*said in a Big Bad Wolf type voice* "hmmmmmm all the better to eat you with"
That's why. They're raising folks higher so they'll scream louder on the way down
yep - its like that nice sweet lemon smell from the antiseptic wipe before the sting of the needle
Aaah I'm scared, lol!
Could be, Google likes to slap both cheeks and then the other two cheeks too
You said the traffic was/is the same; therefore it is just the relative percentages that have changed. Your stats seem to indicate that the new algo is still alive, well, and screwing us. I hope I'm wrong.
What it seems to be showing me is that for some reason the rise in traffic today is coming from other google's. It's like google.com traffic has been replaced by an increase in traffic from the others. (Still not at pre algo levels though).
The algo continues to kill my earnings but it's nice to see nearly a 1000 more visits today
Comparing with this day last year is pointless, nobody is claiming to be beating pre-algo levels.
The point is a clear upward shift in traffic today, the best since 24th February.
To put this into perspective.... I have a custom report set up on Google Analytics. My unique US traffic for the 29th February (with almost half a day to go, in my timezone), is almost at the same level already as my complete US unique traffic for any complete day since the algo change.
Which suggests a recovery of some sort, unless this can be explained in some other way.
I was actually surprised that one one had mentioned this before as my traffic didn't just go all up at once... It's been since last Friday and then it has just kept climbing... Now total traffic is above pre-algo for me personally. My google.com traffic is up 100% from where it was this time last week...
I think I'm not explaining myself properly. I'm not talking about beating pre algo levels. I'm trying to determine where the traffic increase is coming from by comparing like for like. There's more than a 40% change upwards in UK traffic when I compare the 2 days. There's no reason that I can think of why UK traffic would have such a huge variance over the 2 days.
Google.com traffic is at a higher level than yesterday considering there is still 10 hours to go for this day. I sincerely hope the rise is coming from the US, but to me it looks like while some of it is, most of it is coming from an increase in traffic from other google's.
Anyway, we'll be able to see what's going on more clearly tomorrow.
Well UK webmasters are reporting SERPS changes, which are not believed to be related to Panda. So that would explain UK traffic changes at least.
Could it be that searchers in the US are flocking to non-US Googles, because they like the results there better?
No because if you visit Google.co.uk from the US it will automatically revert to Google.com search results.
You would also find two pages of .co.uk results for most search queries, which are likely to be irrelevant to US searchers.
I suspect that we are just seeing a normal SERPS update, just like our hubs used to graduate up the ranks when there were US SERPS updates.
In other words, if panda didn't happen, our traffic would have kept on rising like it always used to. Our maturing hubs are strengthening outside of the US, simples.
Although I am also seeing an increase in US traffic, which makes me slightly hopeful that we are seeing a small recovery.
I live in the U.S., but when I search for the same query on both Google.com and Google.co.uk, I get different results. I tried it with Vacuum County, which is the name of one of my novels. It's true that some of the differences were just about where the vacuum selling businesses were located. But one of my chapters came up on the first page of Google.co.uk, but no such luck with Google.com.
I'm just wondering if other searchers, who are not necessarily looking to buy something in a local shop, may have noticed this difference on their searches.
I just noticed that the latest ad stats are out. HP ads are kicking AdSense's butt as far as I'm concerned.
My traffic is also up too. Have checked analytics and compared against hub stats and yes it is a marked increase and Hub ad program performing well too...
Fingers crossed of a recovery of sorts!
Hopefully this isn't the calm before the storm/full rollout
The only roll-outs I am worried about are UK, Australia and Canada. The rest of the traffic is worthless.
You don't get a substantial amount of google.de, google.nl, google.co.nz google.ie traffic? Those should do pretty good for you as well
Low click values.
In the past 30 days I have had the following traffic:
143,000 US visits
80,000 UK visits
41,000 Canadian visits
28,000 Australian visits
The other four countries that you mentioned have sent me a total of 13000 between them. So please excuse me if I couldn't give a monkeys about that traffic.
The only countries that I have found which can rival US AdSense click values are the UK, Australia and Canada. Particularly the UK.
I am particularly petrified of Panda UK. Although the Panda is said to have trouble multiplying, perhaps it will end up sterile, maybe it just won't do the business
Traffic for me is also at a level it hasn't been at since the algo change. I would be surprised if the changes HP has made are being noticed and rewarded by Google this quickly, but it certainly is encouraging. I'm sure there were a lot of very low quality pages that are now unpublished, and that can't be bad for the rest of the pages on this domain.
That would depend if the Hubpages slap is fully the result of an algorithm or manual.
I suspect a little of both. If things like duplicate content were weighted highly in the algorithm itself, then the overnight removal of duplicate content could well have that kind of effect.
They did that the other day I believe, unpublished all the duplicate content (the stuff that was published elsewhere first).
If I had a theory it would be that they are doing some tests... but just like everyone else I'm hoping it sticks.. who knows.. I guess I'll just enjoy it while its here!
Now that hadn’t occurred to me… I’m hoping that it is because the new algo has accumulated sufficient data to conclude that HP is an awesome domain!
maybe they already rolled out the update to UK
That thread is pretty much conclusive that they are not seeing Panda in the UK.
And I can assure you that my search results look like nothing other than a standard SERPS update, with no content farms penalized.
Panda has not hit the UK, and neither would it see us win MORE traffic than before.
I will be quick to alert people when my second largest traffic source dissapears.
To be honest, unless AdSense is way behind, I think that this is a reporting error.
I did some quick research on my iphone while at work here for some news on google panda algorithm. Seems as tho the sudden increase in goggle.com traffic could be the result that panda is being rolled out to UK and CA. Others are posting similar results but no confirmation as of yet.
Oh and yes my traffic is up too I feel warm and fuzzy but don't let that get around lol
Whilst I don't doubt that you found people suggesting that, I don't understand the logic behind it?
How does the Panda being rolled out result in an increase in Google.com traffic? How does that change US Google.com traffic?
Good question, researching in the news section of google.com of some answers. Just thought I would throw it out there others are trying to put tail on panda as we speak and the surge.
If this site somehow magically comes out exceedingly well in the UK Panda update, then it is time to offer an Amazon.co.uk capsule.
I was looking for exactly this kind of thread. I know I have a limited number of hubs, but Google traffic experienced a huge spike today. I'm happy and relieved.
This shows that Hubpages is still the best and will continue to do so for a long long time to come. Happy I never moved away or deleted any of my hubs.
I'm just hoping this keeps up. Despite being newer, I was already starting to get slightly discouraged at pouring over a hub only to receive a half dozen Google views.
I don't want to be the pessimist... but I'll just wait it out a little bit longer before I say that it's one thing or the other.
That's not pessimism, that's just being sensible.
Panda started being rolled out on 23rd February, none of us noticed until 24th February.
I will decide on Friday whether or not I should be happy or jumping off of a bridge.
With all the rumors flying around, I predict the Panda invasion of the UK will occur at midnight UK time.
Right, I just realised that my Analytics updates in British time. So what I am seeing for the 29th is my traffic for the past 24 hours (for a day which ended 15 minutes ago).
It is only very slightly better than my traffic for the 28th, nowhere near what the Hubpages stats page is showing, and no better than my typical weekday post-algo.
So I am concluding that the Hubpages stats are simply showing more views than I am actually seeing.
My AdSense views are no higher than normal either. So for me, false hope.

Loved the title and had to post it. Note: This is not the announcement.
It has a Content Optimization list every hubber should read.
So you don't have to title search it...
Well, my traffic has dipped again since yesterday, but only slightly, and tomorrow is the start of the normal weekend fall anyway so it was nice while it lasted

According to HubPages stats, my UK monthly traffic is 17% that of US traffic. GA says it's 4%. GA traffic is tracked, so is HubPages somehow identifying the country of origin which raises the ratio?

This has been something i have wondered about before and it has always puzzzle me. However, yesterday there was an even bigger gap in my stats, my Hubpages stats showed just over 5000 views. However, my Adsense views show just under 1000. Why is there such a massive...

On HubPages in reporting under 1 Day, I am seeing a 0 for traffic received.In Google Analytics, I'm seeing that I'm receiving a normal number of visits.I'm assuming it's related to the Q&A redesign I noticed today.
