      I had an uptick in traffic and it has held. It's a minor uptick, but an extra 200 views a day, on average, is a good beginning. wink

        I would be cautious about being optimistic on a seasonal upswing :p

          Hey Oli, seasonal upswing would be for those who have sales hubs. My uptick is across the board on all different hubs. I don't attribute it to anything Staff has done. I know why it has happened and that would be a change in my hubs and keywords themselves. But, thank you for your concern. smile

            Go on to quantcast and expand the results for all time :p

              That little upturn looks more prominent from that view.

                The overall values are also much higher though, so you would expect a larger upturn.  I would be happy to see my hubs getting traffic again, but I am not sure this will be it :p

    Where is that on the graph?

      Sorry I should have linked it

      http://www.quantcast.com/hubpages.com

      I'm not seeing an upturn either by the way, but its obvious here so someone's got increased views!

        I still dont see the upturn there too! Sorry.

        May be, your pageviews are going up?

        1. IzzyM profile image88
          IzzyMposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          No look right at the end of the graph, there is a small but definite upturn. My views are collapsing as they do every weekend.

    Izzy, this has to be a joke. Or are you just trying to have fun in the forums?. (I sometimes do too) smile
    Edit: Its like hoping against hope!

    I have faith that Hubpages will get it right. Google has explicitly stated that poor quality pages can impact the whole site. They have also explicitly stated that removing poor quality pages should return high quality pages to their former position.

    Given the feverish activity removing the bad stuff over the past couple of months there is genuine cause for optimism. Also I am making money here- not much less than the halcyon days pre-Panda. That always makes me feel better.

    My own contribution, sadly, is meager. I am just updating pages. Correcting mistakes. Trying to make my content as sharp as it can be.

    Hi Izzy, sorry to put my hand up to this.  I published a hub on Hot Aunties in Eastbourne and it got five views before being moderated.  I think that accounts for the boost.

    On the other hand...

    Yes, I see the uptick.  Caution tells me that we had one or two of those pre Panda, where it looked like they did an extra crawl because the bot couldn't believe the amount of crap on here.

    Then we got slammed again.

    However, it could be a glimmer of hope...

    edit:  It is interesting to compare the graph to Squidoo.  They did not have an uptick.

      Mark, You should have been here when real adult stuff was OK smile

      We as the members of the site, as individuals are still evolving, as the site does.

      Best Regards

    Yeah I had a slight upturn this week but I put it down to seasonal upswing like Oli said but fingers crossed

    I've had a slight increase over the last week, but am still not holding my breath that it will be ongoing yet - would sure be nice though.

      I didn't even know what Quantcast was before Panda. Now I watch it like a hawk. We've had little upturns before since Panda, but they didn't amount to much the next day again. Maybe tomorrow it'll fall again. Who knows? I can't tell by looking at my own traffic. I have to depend on Quantcast to give me the wider picture.
      I only posted to maybe give some people some hope. Because from hope, something or other springs eternal, apparently, LOL

    My traffic is slightly up, but I've been doing more linking also. Someone somewhere said that you need to spend 10% of your time writing and 90 linking. That sounds dreadful to me.

    The upturn has continued today!!

    My traffic and earnings from HP have never been exciting due to my limited SEO skills, but when I compare traffic and earning for 14 days of May to 14 days of April I see a strange pattern. My page impressions are just a little over 60% of last month but my clicks have doubled and my earning is up by almost one dollar. I find it a bit strange that with reduced traffic I am getting better clicks and increase in earnings.

      are you running both HP ads and adsense?

      1. sid_candid profile image60
        sid_candidposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Yes I am running both and doing so from late March and have never switched off HP ads even for one day.

        1. prettydarkhorse profile image63
          prettydarkhorseposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          your adsense and HP ads are competing with each other so if you have click for adsense it is worth more than the HP ads.

    It has continued again, and HP has risen two points in the US index.
    It may be something or nothing, but this is cheering to look at now.

      Awesome smile glad I'm continuing to publish here now lol  I got a paycheck in the post today for 100 bucks for another online resource, should be a weekly thing as well.. its a start!

        Nice work! Well done! Where, if you don't mind me asking? - I could do with some more paychecks smile

          Got it from Blog TV, what is a pain in the ass is that my bank said it will take 2 weeks to clear because its coming from the US so I may have to resort to the other method of payment which is the Payoneer card which I didn't really want. Good job I'm on holiday while it clears lol

          Adsense should be a nice amount at the end of June as well, cause I missed payout by a small amount for May

    Good to know, thanks.  But my traffic is not increasing.. consistent though.  I'm happy with consistent.

      Mine isn't increasing either, but someone's is! Which of course is possibly good news for all of us.
