    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 sad

            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 smile

    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.cool

    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! smile

      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 did click on, "Submit for publication" waited a few days and rewrote the entire article so that it is not the same.  I am working on my patience and so I will wait.  Thanks for the information, I do appreciate.

    Sorry to hear that - mine are increasing noticeably.
