If you want to make money go somewhere else. Hub Pages is getting really bad. They unpublished one of my hubs for a prohibited link? The link was Amazon!
I am going to unpublish all my hubs before Hub Pages has me pick them apart then go somewhere else with them!
Whats Labour Day? I'm from the UK I doubt they will suffer much if they are universal topics
This time of year is my best earning period. Or was. Nothing is dependable on the internet.
That sounds like advantage to me! to some the summer time is there best earning period, but to people that doesnt write on stuffs that relates to holidays/vacation. then days after 5th of september would be like christmas eve!
I guess no more checking of stats or GA for me till the 6th then. No need to upset myself watching the falling blue arrows.
I kind of wondered what was happening to my earnings today
Wow. Kind of interesting. I will have to keep an eye on the blue arrows as well.
Although a very large proportion of traffic is US based, the trend is growing with more people using this site internationally.
It is extremely helpful to have quality hubs with evergreen content. Suffice to say nothing wrong writing hubs based on trends, gossip, holidays and such, but these are seasonal and traffic in spikes occurs.
I salivate for this time of year as the Northern hemisphere stays indoors longer and I see a rise of traffic from Sept through to March.
I agree. I need to do more writing on vacations and maybe camping...
Never noticed ..but will look into this. Thanks for the thought!
No, it's not a trend when one has their highest traffic and earnings in a particular season and it falls %80 the day after my best earning day of the year on Adsense. I know my traffic has been penalized by Google for some reason or no reason at all. It's no trend.
I'll probably get kicked off but some of the staff who have 100 scores should be ashamed of the crap they write. Last night one of the leadersw wrote a falafel recipe (we were told to stop writing recipes). It had about 5 ingedients, including a can of garbanzo beans, and you pop it all in the food processor and bake it in cute shapes. That earns a 100 score? A 10 year old writes like that. You need to be a "pet" around here.
Things are actually not bad today.
Wednesday, August 24th.
If this extrapolates accordingly to post Labor Day, then I'd say HP is really on the comeback trail big time.
Disagree. Usually from this point on I have my highest traffic of the year..and I am seeing the same trend. It will dip labor day weekend but not until then
So far, today is the best day regarding HP traffic. It is up by almost 40%.

Has anyone else experienced this huge drop in earnings from the Hubpages Ad Program? Throughout the month of September I was making a steady amount per day. Over September 24-25, my earnings dropped immediately by 50%, and are now consistently 50% less than what they were a month ago. If it were a...

I've been a HP member for five years now and have seen steady, but modestly increasing traffic and earnings until recently. My earnings are now close to what I was seeing three or four years ago. I thought maybe it was a just a blip that I could wait out, but it has continued for months, probably...

Friday and Saturday showed the lowest Ad Program earnings I have seen in well over one year. It seems it could be just temporary though, as lately my earnings overall have increased. Maybe returning (I hadn't written here for some time, and just came back and made a few posts) jars the algorithm...

My traffic is higher than it has ever been (Five Figures), however, my CPM is very low this month. I feel like some of this traffic is going to waste this month. My CPM has been normal since I started using the HP Ad Program in March 2011, but September is not consistent with previous month's CPMs....

The expectation and plan is for this to be a happy, fun thread. We shall see...Last year my seasonal traffic increase began the very first week of September, but Labor Day was September 1st. This year the starting line is September 7th.For those of us with non-summer-specific hubs, the weekly...

Just reviewed my earnings and I had a nice run in August but absolutely nothing for September. Is this possible?
