i have two hubs which between them attract over half my hits.
"How to be a Good Student" was number two on page one of Google pre-Panda, dropped out of the top 20 pages after Panda, but is now back on page one at number three.
"What is Domicile?" was on page two of Google pre-Panda, dropped out of sight, but is back to page fourteen.
Both are very solid pieces which are normally read in full despite being quite long. The vast majority of hits on both are through Google.
I hope this is a sign that Google will recognise good content, even if it does originate through Hubpages.
My numbers seem to have at least caught up. Hopefully the rising readership statistics will return.
Franlky I keep hearing about Panda. I only joined HP a little over 4 months ago so I am not sure if and how this has affected me. My hubs are not doing to badly though so I think that whatever happened with the Panda thing might 'blow over' and everything will get back to normal.
I would guess that the changes put in place will remain in effect unless Google has a reason to alter them.
If that is the case then the only way that anything will change regarding search engine traffic is if we can adapt to and embrace the changes needed. Part of the problem might be that no one seems absolutely sure what adaptations and changes are needed so at the best the changes needed could be based on educated guesses.
With so many changes happening in a short space of time Panda might be only part of the equation anyway.

I know the more exposure we have, the more chances for page views. That is not what I am asking about here. I am wondering if we are effected by the quantity of hubs over the quality of maybe a smaller number of hubs.I am looking to delete more older hubs (seasonal in a way) to help boost the more...

I have kept quiet about this for a while now, but after the Panda update I saw my traffic drop a little then normalize (as expected after any Google update).However since I made the changes required by Hubpages (and I assume changes enforced upon everybody else) I have seen steadily declining...

I'm curious to hear if there are any hubbers, who saw a big drop in traffic after the most recent Google Panda and Penguin updates, have fixed their issues and are getting good traffic again yet?I think it would be good for us all to know what changes brought about your renewal of traffic, since...

My page views have fallen to 5% of what they were 10 days ago. I have read other forum topics where fellow hubbers have the same problem. However, no-one seems to have an answer to this particular problem. I was receiving quite reasonable income from my hubs and the view rate was increasing month...
