My Hubpages account is dying

    The algorithm changes Google has affected everyone but its almost end of the day for me. I was never making fortunes from Hubpages but things had started to improve from November last year. I was so excited that may be in one years time I should see decent revenue from hubpages. But Mr Google had other ideas. Previously I used to complete payout in two months now may be 5 months or even more. This is so depressing. Previously I used to get about 150-200 Page impression from adsense but now I rarely reach 100. The Hubpages ad program is great but even that will take me at least 4 months to reach payout. I think may be I and my hubs are not good enough. My hubpages account is dying a slow and painful death and I can only watch in agony as I have no idea what I can do to give it a new lease of life. sad

    Find niches and stick to them. Don't look back on what you made, look forward to what you can make.

    I wish we could exchange Hubs. 

    I'd gladly take the Hubs off the hands of those that no longer wish to be here.

    Personally, I think things will improve.  I am already seeing a slight increase in SE traffic on some Hubs.  It is possible that we can turn it around, with consistent work.
