My HP ads have earnt less than a dollar so far this month. Previously, was earning around $12 per month. Traffic dropped, but not nearly as much as earnings.
Yes, I am in the same boat, although I have hit over the dollar mark! (just)
Check for the traffic sources... You must have lost a big percentage of Google traffic while the HP traffic would still be there and Google traffic is what actually pays.
I wonder if we should be looking elsewhere at other sites. Maybe Hubpages will recover the traffic though. I hope so
I'm increasingly thinking HP is pretty well dead and buried I;m afraid ... very sad but it seems to be going this way
Just over a dollar, was doing a lot better. Google traffic is still higher than hub traffic on most days but it has dropped.
I'm getting some referral traffic from my hubs to my blog, but not earning anything
Ritsos, You haven't been on Hubpages long enough to judge it. My traffic has been increasing and almost back to what it was before the Panda update at Google.
Same here, for the most part. After Panda, I started promoting my hubs majorly through blogs and social networking sites, and I think that's helped out a lot as well. Things seem to be leveling back out though.. I have a few hubs that are actually doing better post-panda. I've always believed that quality content always pays.
Your report is encouraging, Barbara Kay. My traffic is about half what it was pre-Panda, but you have been hubbing longer than I have. June was really low for me, only 40% of pre-Panda. I'm told I have good quality, so am just hoping in time I can say, like you, that it is almost back to pre-Panda.
Perhaps you're right Barbara .. have to say I was feeling more than a bit peeved that HP had dumped a couple of my pages for no reason I could see but I tweaked about two words in each where I'd rushed them which made them less readable and they were passed. However, other forum posts have reported a massive dip so I really don't know.
I think I'll try to get several more posts up here as most of my better ones I moved ages ago, and see how it goes before making my mind up .. thanks for the positivity :-)
I've said before, HP is a nice platform for beginners but if you want to really make money then establishing your own site is the way to go..its what all the best hubbers here have done. Just my opinion, I started out getting my checks here..now my sites add to what my HP earnings always give me
I keep writing about the same topics, yet for some unknown reason which I have yet to figure out my earnings have doubled since last month.
My traffic went down on HP as well, but i have been quiet on here as well so hard to tell.. Yeah i agree though the panda update was not very good for many online communities..
I should make payout on Adsense tomorrow ahead of last months date. My traffic has steadily increased since the panda slap and so has my earnings. Amazon sales are up and down with a few great months since the slap. Go figure!
That's strange, I've earned more with HP ads already than I usually do this far into a month.
All of my hub pages have been marked as needing revision...What?
That was two weeks ago, I have since written two new ones and though it has been about a week, I am unable to get them published, why not?
Welcome to Hubpages!
If you want to re-publish hub, then you have to click on "submit for publication". You cannot edit them, then click done editing and expect them to be automatically republished.
It doesn't work that way. If you have already submitted them for republication, then I would suggest you send email to Staff- Team@Hubpages.com and find out what is taking so long to republish.
Otherwise, it usually takes about 24-72 hours to get hubs manually checked and republished.

I was sorry to see that this forum thread was closed to comments by HP:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/78912#topThere was a lot of good information going back and forth there. It may be that some snipe stuff went on between commenters, but the topic is still valid.I'd like to see it continue.

How do you stay positive when your stats are down?I've been feeling very optimistic about hubpages, seeing fairly steady gains in views and money. But the last 2 days my growing google traffic has completely collapsed. It gives me a small taste of what hubbers who have come to expect income from it...

Yesterday my traffic had improved and had reached the level where it used to be prior the Google update. But today gain it is down by about 30%. Has the traffic improved for you? Hope this drop is just a one day thing and things start to improve from here for hubpages.

Okay, last month - from ALLLLmy blogs, all my everything - I earned a pathetic $1.82 in AdSense revenue. Total. (Don't spend it all in one place, right?)In April, I began Hubbing. This month so far, 17 days in, with my small pack of 12 Hubs (most created this week), I've already made $9.26.Now...

Why has the Great Google PANDA taken most of my GOOGLE traffic away this week?Starting earlier this week my Traffic from Google dropped by more than 50%. What's up with this?

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