Hey guys, I was wondering if you guys could help me out. I had been getting a constant 30 to 40 views per day and a couple of days ago that dropped to about 7 a day. Any suggestions about what happened? Any advice?
If you were getting good traffic from search engines, then there is a chance that you have a good competitor(s) on your contents and keywords...check which hub(s) was giving most of the traffic earlier, fine tune them again with new subtitle, tags etc.
Check the hub metrics which shows traffic sources, see which source is got affected, if it is a back linked source, probably that sites would have been removed your link or updated their content.
Also search on google with a very specific phrase or word related to your hub's content, see what is in the top of the search result. If it is a website where you can leave a comment, go through the website and leave an insightful comment with a back link to your hub. For me it really worked, you know, even I am surprised as one of my hub is keep getting traffic (20 - 40 views/day) from that source.
Try and let me know your feedback.
If you haven't done so already, I recommend that you sign up for Google Analytics and activate it for HubPages. This will give you a clear picture of where your traffic comes from, both its source and the geographic location of your visitors.
You can configure Analytics to exclude your own pageviews, as explained here: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/76301
I will also add that some of the traffic may have came from within HubPages. This may have been why you had more.
Holidays, seasons, topic, and other factors can contribute to this though.
Very interesting, psf. Sounds like good, old-fashioned work, but well worthwhile.
I had several hubs drop and wound up finding them reprinted word for word on another site. Filed DCMAs. One of the hubs was copied by a fellow hubber on his own site. Another copied hub was higher than mine when I googled the first line.

Since past 2 days, I have witnessed a huge drop in the traffic. From around 500+ page views, it has been dropped to less than 150; more than 70% drop. Is someone else also experiencing something similar? Are there any algorithm updates by Google...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

Since the latest Google update, my top 20 articles have shifted around and some that were not doing that well are now near the top on my stats page. These high performing hubs are mostly getting their views from android.google.com. Why are they not showing up as google.com? I have had mobile...
