Over the last week or two my traffic has plummeted to the point where im getting hardly 30 views per day across my three accounts (100 articles). Just a few weeks ago I was making $5-$8 per day here but now its just pennies. Did something happen with Google or something?

I have several hubs that aren't generating any views. Would it hurt me overall to take them down?

HP has always said do evergreen hubs. Politics is certainly not evergreen. it has a short "shelf-life" if it is about a current event. And since I would mostly write about U.S. politics, they might have very little appeal in other countries. I use my blogs to write about politics,...
