    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?

      Hey Cindy,

      See your link above...and see how your username is first? That's because your account has been moved to a sub-domain. Now your account works and earns based on your ability.

      Promotion, backlinking, on page SEO and very little juice from HP.

      Many accounts were automatically switched and will continue to be automatically switched via HP staff.

      HP thinks it will help the site's overall ability to rank on Google and each person is now based on their own authority, and not on the authority of the overall site.

    Thanks so much!  So if I don't promote my hubs then my views will just remain the same.  This means I'll have to work harder now?

      Cindy, all your hubs need to be re-indexed and then you'll get more views based on the keywords in the content. Promoting them would be more helpful. You just won't be receiving the "juice" you received in the past from HP.

      Your profile and hubs will stand on their own credibility and value. I hope that helps.

        Since I switched to sub-domain I have been doing much better, even hubs that were kinda dormant are now showing red flags.
