Traffic Drop?

    I had about 191 views a day between hubpages, bukisa, and my website.  For some reason, I've only been getting at max 30 for the last few days.  Has anyone else had such a drop?  If so, what's going on?

      Not for me actually, my traffic has increased from just 10 to about 100 - and all these are to my hubs only. I've found that more activity means more exposure, more exposure means more followers and more followers means more traffic. Set a specific rule - like 3 answers per day, 1 question per day and/or 5 comments per day. Write at least 1 hub per week and you'll never see decreasing traffic!

    Same here...big drop. Some will say it's summer, some will say it's Panda but I say it's the people, they don't search for the stuff we write anymore. They don't do their keyword research before going wild on the internet to read stuff. Too bad.

      Panda is just an excuse! As long as your contents are original, you have no need to worry. If its summer in US, its winter in Australia and other oceanic areas. While summer may be a factor, it is natural and you should not depend only on winter to get traffic. In the mean time, create some back links and add some meta description to your hubs.

        Panda is not an excuse - for those of us who were established here pre-panda massive drops in traffic have become a fact of life.

        In January I was getting 800/900 hits a day and now 400 is a good day, and it is much harder to drive good traffic to newly written hubs however much keyword research and promotion you do.

        Its not just hubber traffic that you need, if you want to make money you need search engine traffic

      Yeah, sofs, I agree.  Over the last week or so, traffic has tanked.

    My hubs are earning more each month and the traffic has increased since Panda every month since.  I don't know what the deal is! smile

        Apparently I can, Sofs.  I don't backlink and just try to publish useful articles on subjects the internet isn't saturated with.  No secret at all.  smile

    Hello all: I made my first penny today. It makes me realize that while making money is great, it really isn't always about that. Its a start and its going in the right direction.
    Thanks to all for a great forum

      Hopefully it will soon have a few friends and pennies will become pounds!! Well done! It is a wonderful feeling.

    I think when it comes to traffic, it depends on the subject matter.

    For instance if you write on traffic keywords like celebrity gossip, pictures of tattoos or piercings, famous quotes, video game reviews, music lyrics, movie and book reviews etc.

    Those subjects bring in more traffic just out of default and probably do well on a pay per view revenue model.

      Mine have also tanked, despite writing several new hubs.  In April I dedicated the month to try to do backlinking, but I see no difference in traffic between those hubs and the ones published since.  Hoping it will pick up.
