Why is HubPages Totally Ignored by Google

    When I check traffic on my never hubs there is virtually no traffic from Google. WTH?

      It is my understanding that Hubpages was one of the sites most negatively affected by the Google "Panda" update in February.

    I don't think that that is the issue. It appears that Hubpages is having (yet again) technical difficulties. My stats have not updated for the last two days, including new accolades and earnings.

      When you say your earning have not updated, do you mean Google or Hub Ads?

        When I checked my stats - views - yesterday, once they were up and later they were down  so there are some glitches.

      Ah!  I suppose I misread the "thing behind" this forum post.  I suspect that you read it correctly, and that I'm just a pretentious moron.. . . .seriously.  I'm sort of glitchy.

    I don't think that is true either.. As Luis Gonzalez says the stats are still stuck.. I guess the counter moved a bit and is stuck again.. lets hope for the best smile

    From what I understand it depends on the article because google is no longer ranking the whole site just individual pages on the site.

    so I wonder if they(Google) is expecting protection money form websites. much like the Mafia expects from local business people...;/

    I'm getting Google traffic.  I'm even getting DECENT Google Traffic.

    I can only imagine that if you aren't - then a little on page web optimization and some additional dofollow backlinking is in order.

    I'm not exactly getting pre pandaganda Google traffic - but I'm about 3/4 the way to Pre Pandamonium Google traffic.

      My google traffic has remained pretty good, and is even climbing some.  But I do like to be able to take a quick look at states for a page and see about keyword and traffic and this glitch is a b---h for doing that.

        definitely.  I'm sure it'll be fixed before long.

    I've been at this now for about 5 months and really enjoy writing for Hub. I've published 70 hubs and have noticed a real drop in Google traffic. I was getting over 50% but am now down to about 35%. I admit I'm doing about one hub a week but once did about three a week. Thank goodness for backlinks. My only question is: How low will it go?

      Google has found a need, and has proceeded to fill it.  That's pandering, and they have become a giant where I have to pay then for them to pay me.

    About 70% of my traffic is from Google so I don't think we're totally ignored.  If that were true, I wouldn't have any traffic at all.!

      More traffic I get from google than refereals and hubpage traffic, so that is good, but it needs to be better.

    Thanks everyone.  I was going to ask this same question because whenever I look a subject up, just random, in Google other article sites come up.  I almost wanted  to switch but I really like Hubpages.

    The new sub-domains should help now.
