Its been 4 days since I made the subdomain switch. I have not even seen a 10% change in traffic or earnings. Has the change failed for me? Are my Hubs not good enough? Am I analyzing to early?
Too early to tell Sid. Bear in mind there will be a plunge before the storm due to the fact that your current hubs will be re-indexed by Google.
As far as I can tell 147 of your hubs have been re-indexed on 317. As the rest are picked up and cached by Google your traffic will continue to climb.
Fear not, this is your lowest point.
I appreciate your reply. Is there a average time that it takes? Like 10 days, 2 weeks or so because just about a month since it started and a few hubbers are reporting great results.
It can vary, but you should start seeing results very soon. I'm in the same boat and a week or so after the change all my hubs have been re-indexed and my traffic is not only higher than it was post-panda, but its reaching pre-panda levels.
A month sounds about right IMO, but someone who switched earlier will know better than I would. As far as I know Panda sweeps by every 3-4 weeks for a complete swipe.
@Sid - you have about 1/3 of your hubs in the new subdomain - where all of your hubs indexed previously?
My experience, and most of my hubs were quite old, it took about 2 weeks for G to find all the new urls, I got a couple of days of significantly higher traffic (though not at Panda levels) - and now my overall traffic has dropped back to the (abysmal) post Panda levels.
IMHO - you need to make a choice - do the hard work to rank your hubs - or decide that if you have to do that much work you might as well invest the effort in sites you actually own

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.

Hubbers, I'm sorry that we can't tell you why your traffic is going down or why Google was showing Hubs on hubpages.com and now has reverted to showing them on the subdomain. We are similarly frustrated. We do know Google announced a panda update last week. We also can see Hubs...

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...

I did a little experiment with opting into the EC program for three months. To begin with,last year one of my better performing hubs become Editor's Choice. That hub was getting an average of 20o+ views per day, peak. The day after being selected as EC, the views dropped to zero. I watched it for a...
