Hello fellow hubbers
It has been quite a while sinceI have been consistently active on hubpages. Whether it be in the forums or publishing hubs. I have been playing the waiting game since the panda -- even though I did publish some hubs after, but not nearly as many or at a consistent manner. The last hub I published was in May or June 2011 I believe.
I still have been making some cash on here, but the panda seriously crippled my moderate short-term and long-term goals.
Today, however, I checked to see how my traffic and earnings have been doing since switching to subdomain, and apparently, my traffic has increased between 75-90% approximately!
This new subdomain idea seems to be working for me and I guess some other hubbers as well.
What is the main reason why these subdomains are supposed to help?
--------------Sorry for the long post, it's been a while!-----
The purpose of the sub domain switch was to enable your hubs to stand or fall on their own merit.
In other words - if I only produce crappy hubs, and you produce great hubs. . .but we are on the same domain, then my crappy hubs bring your excellent hubs down in the eyes of Google.
So you and I both now (because we both have our own unique sub domains) either sink or swim on our own merit.
Wow and I thought my hubs sucked, Guess not....lol cuz I am doing really well since the switch...
Yeah love the new sub-domain feature and would agree that now, its up to your own skill and quality of hubs, instead of HubPages PR.
I am very pleased with the positive changes since the sub-domains. Earnings are and views are up. The HubPage team really turned things around.
I have the same feeling with you, David. My traffic is back to normal after switching the HubPages Subdomain. I thought HubPages team had done a great work for us and as the writer we deserve to get after what we have done before by posting nice hub. I know that we got the impact from Google Panda, especially for traffic and earning too. But I hope the best for us and everything back to normal and even make it better than before. Have you heard about HubPages team will increase the pixel. So it will influence with the CPM and earning as well...amen.
He is talking about the site becoming wider, on the hubpages blog Simone says they are going to make the pages bigger so that they will be able to hold more advertising.
Here is the link: http://blog.hubpages.com/2011/08/site-widening/
Yes mine increased this week just after I changed, about 800 extra visitors, slight decrease today but not much, I'm thinking its just the weekend.
Really? My HP ad program is doing better and I checked adsense yesterday and made 2.00 dollars -- which is a lot for my adsense account by itself because HP ad program gets most of the income.
Perhaps the sub domain change helps the adsense account too -- even if a person uses the HP ad program.
Sorry to ask, but what does the "increase the pixel " refers to?
I got the information about "pixel" on hubpages blog. It said:
In a couple of days, we’ll be rolling out the first in a series of design updates on HubPages by widening the site. The width of all our pages will increase by 120 pixels- from 850 to 970 pixels.
We're getting a teensy bit wider!
One of the reasons we’re making this change is to accomodate premium, high-impact ads that typically have high CPMs (which means more income for you as a writer).
Thanks prasetio30, that's good to know and that the staff is really trying hard to improve the site.
Go into your account settings and look around - it's in there. I would suggest that you change yours right away - that way you are separated from the "spam" or otherwise low quality stuff on the site, I would think that yours would be victorialynn.hubpages.com - when you change it.

My traffic has changed since the subdomain switch. It has gone up a bit, but is still now where near pre-panda levels and some days it can really dip down again. The patterns have changed as well, for instance Sunday always used to be a pretty bad traffic day, but its actually an OK day today.
Guess all my hubs suck and I am a crap writer! LOL!
Would be nice if they could widen it without compromising the professional layout
Hows everyone's traffic today? Mine is highest its been since last year but earnings bit slow today, very ironic. Last week earnings have been pre-Panda until today
I have been getting earnings daily now, Its great. But now I am checking adsense a few times a day again.....
Yes its good, I think today must be an odd one because my traffics up highest its ever been, yesterday I earn 4 times what I have today lol, and the last 7 days before
Are you using the Hubpages ad program Richieb or just Adsense alone?
Just Adsense, I didn't want anything affecting my Adsense, I tried HP Ads for a week in April but wasn't impressed, I decided to hold out and wait for Google earnings to return to normal. Besides I have several other Adsense projects so it all contributes.
And i thought i was the only one, checking too many times each day.
I never had much traffic to begin with, but my traffic has been better since the subdomain switch.

My HP traffic down since last three to four days and it's a matter of great concern for me. I have already written 50 hubs for the contest but still I am not seeing the traffic that I was seeing post google algorithm change. Is there anyone else who is facing the same problems. I have started...

Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is. I realise it all depends on how attractive your pages are and how good they are etc, but what are people actually earning? I am not...

I know there have been a lot of changes in the air in the past 10 or so days... There was another big Panda update... then the stinkin' Penguin and all. And, HP has been tinkering around with the design of pages.My traffic has remained relatively constant through it all. But, over...

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.

My CTR is sharply down for April. I've only had 2 clicks on over 800 views. Worse still these are both referral Hubs rather than my own and were only worth a few cents.Up to now my CTR has been around 2%. Is this just me or are others seeing a drop in earnings? The trouble...

I am having a bad day - I've been ill for a week, son #2 has now been ill for a month, husband came home yesterday full of despair at not getting promotion and much needed pay rise. So this morning I gave myself my usual half-baked pep talk about my new 'career' online. Then came on HP for a...
