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 haven't been around for a while. What's the subdomain? I see my views have plumeted completely!
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.

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?

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