Having fared not that badly when panda hit (40% loss), and having got back quite a bit of traffic when the new subdomain was introduced (25% gain), all was well again with hubpages.
However this morning, virtually all of my hubs have a blue triangle next to them and my traffic has dropped by over 60% in one day.
The funny thing is, my Google rankings dont appear to have changed for my hubs. Anyone else had a sudden drop in traffic? Maybe its the hubpages reporting that's gone wrong (ever the optimist!)
Even Panda took longer than 12 hours to kill my traffic.
Ahh. not a reporting issue. Google has decided that it now hates me with a passion......Google giveth, and Google taketh away.
Yep, we've been discussing this on the latter pages of this thread.

What 3 things do you think someone w/o a lot of time can do to increase their earnings on Hub pages?What tips do you have for someone to increase their earnings on HP even if they don't have a lot of time to dedicate to writing several new hubs every week or even month?

I am a complete newb to HP and when checking my stats today saw a little blue triangle next to one of my hubs, so I see this means traffic has dropped, but can i get penalised for it? Or will the hub stop being featured?Im just unsure what it means?thanks

I thought I understood the little blue and red triangles. But not so sure.Of my 36 hubs I currently have four with the nasty blue triangles alerting me that traffic is falling. Three of these show some activity today. But the other 32 hubs have no triangles at all. So what's that...

Wow, what hit HubPages?I went to have my hair cut at 4:30 p.m. and my score here was at 93 and, now, two hours later, is fell 9 points to 84? How in the world can it drop that much in two hours? Has anyone's dropped a good bit in the past few hours that you've noticed?
