Today i have noticed that my traffic to all the hubs is drastically down and i am much worried about it. Have you also noticed this? Please guide me what should i do. My traffic is lost. LOT OF BLUE DOWN ARROWS ON STATS ARE SHOWING.
I have been seeking and income online for the past 3 years. In all that time I earned nothing until recently when I joined Hubpages I was able to earn 40 dollars in 6months. In might not be much but it was inspiring.
Since Google Panda, my earning is down to zero. I am back where I am coming from. What makes it worst for me is that unlike other challenges you might see a way out or a loophole. However with Panda all my research hasn't turned up any strategy how I can manipulate it in anyway. Frankly looking at the SERP I can't explain why some content rank better that others. What is even more puzzling is when I analyze the content on Ehow and Hubpages I can't see why Ehow outperfom's Hubpages.
I have noticed that Google is focusing much tighter on keywords in title so you might find that your content won't rank for multiple keywords as before. That's all I have found so far, and it isn't a certainty.
Yes! I also had very poor traffic to my hubs. Really sorry to state that HubPages has recently lost the favor of Google. I think it can retain the help of Google by deleting many existing spam articles particularly that ones containing glamor images of actresses. My humble opinion is that Hubpages should also avoid new Ad program. It will certainly affect Google AdSense program.
I could be falling behind the new world, but to my understanding, if the home page of a web site has high ranking (if you only promote the home page), then the pages under benefit would in turn have traffic even if you don't make effort to promote them separately. Correct me if I'm wrong, I may be too old for this new world
I always read the blog to see if anyone will mention me and my ginger beard, but alas no, I cry into my cornflakes!!! still that Google post was a nice little insight into what we should expect to write about....
It was an adsense post. Adsense team sends you one message, WebSpam team another.
Anyone with a month or two of experience could have wrote the adsense post, that didn't require a google staff member, nor is the info any better than Hubpages pre-existing Help center or any hubs on adsense by Hub members. It was fluff.
I wouldnt rank it
Lets see a a post from the Google WebSPam/webmaster teams, then we can break out the applause.
Actually, the post was less than impressive...
"Tip: you can see which are the sites that link to your Hubs by using the Google Webmaster Tools. For more information, please visit this page."
Really? You can link Hubpages.com to your webmaster tools account? I was under the impression I would have to own the domain and prove that ownership to run webmaster tools?
I Would love to see a tutorial on how to make that work
Totally agree. It was reference to his interest in volleyball that did it for me. Personally having seen the effect on my traffic I don't really give a monkeys about his volleyball. I am interested in making a living, (no really), not reading sub Facebook chat. Why not ask him why Quantcast show HP dropping from 50 to 100? Why not ask the little ---- why copies of my content rank more highly than my own?
I have a Toolbar on my Firefox Browser that measures Alexa and Quantcast as well as Bing, Yahoo and Google page rank equivalents. Every hubber should try it out. You lean a lot and get some amazing information on how websites function.
Invest a few measly bucks in a few domains of your own and grow your own content. Nothing like it, I say!
Nope you can't use webmaster tools on HP. I also found it amusing that the google guy said titles should be 60 characters or less. I've been writing titles all week (new client, lots of work, which has put paid to my other plans for a few weeks) and G definitely shows 70 characters as I've counted them numerous times.
Anyway I'm nitpicking, but anything Google is pissing me off right now
Lol! yeah I was only being polite about that blog post, but now the cats outta the bag it was rather contradictary in places and yeah Volleyball is great when we are not in a Global Google meltdown!!!!!!! with quality content losing the will to live!
Google has done another Panda algorithm update that basically affects the search results of all other English speaking countries. They did it about a month ago for the US search results, but now it is for all English speaking countries.
Most article directories have dropped in SERPs, but the quality content will definitely rise back up!
My traffic is down too.This new panda update has brought some newly sprung up site in the top page of Google without considering the quality of the pages, while some of my well-written hubs lost the Google's first page position.I can say this new updates did not affect Google site at all-because my Google site is still topping the first page of Google as it was few months back.I think traffic will come back soon as it takes time to any systems to come to a stable state.
My traffic has changed little, but then it was never very high. However, my CTR has plummeted so Adsense is down. I am not one of the privileged few given a chance to make up my earnings with the new ad programme.
I am actually doing better with articles I have on another site at the moment. At least I am earning a consistent few pence every day on them. It pains me to say it, since I hate that site with a passion!
Don't Panic. When I saw the hubs traffic yesterday, I almost got worried but indeed encouraged myself saying "It's going up again" because I speak what I expect at things like this one. Google is still in love with HubPages. Google is with the search and adsense earnings remote control button. The press and change channels as the want even if you're watching an interesting programme, you're on your own.
Traffic is down 50-65 % it's true but not for all my hubs, some of them are still on top. I did not check the earnigs but something is sure: no traffic no earnings. We can do nothing in my opinion, just hope that everything will go "normal" as we were used to.
My traffic and income from Hubpages has gone down drastically. I am pissed off seeing by 500 + Hubs earning less than $3. But as always I guess we should not lose hope. This phase is just temporary. I have full faith on HP.
It's like investing in a new company with the stock market that is awaiting approval from the FDA for a medication that will help change an illness dramatically. You know it will go up you just have to be patient and wait for the approval. If HP continues to provide unique quality content in articles that is not driven by misleading money scamming rip offs Google will not only give it's approval but show favor to HP. You have to think of the advertisers that make Google money. Do they want to go to a site and see their ad (they've paid dearly for)on a site promoting how they can become an instant millionaire or a 100 word article promoting their competition that's been spun 30 times. Companies (as do we) are paying attention to where their sales and income are generated and adjusting their marketing accordingly. I mean come on unless your wealthy enough to do this just because you love it were all interested in making money and need to "adjust" our articles to do just that. Give Google and the advertisers what they want, good unique quality articles and HP will succeed accordingly.
My HP traffic down since last three to four days and it's a matter of great concern for me. I have already written 50 hubs for the contest but still I am not seeing the traffic that I was seeing post google algorithm...
Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more...
Jeez, I check my stats this morning and it's a disaster. I run to Quantcast and discover it's all of HubPages and not just me. What the heck is going on? I even rushed to a calendar website to see if there was something...
Hey Guys and Gals, Man, I have just about had it with the traffic issues here at the Hubpages. I have published over 100 hubs here in two years. I have won several awards, I have had over 10, 000 views, and I have a...
