After two weeks of steady increase in traffic views, my traffic views are plunging today. It is like the stock market, taking weeks to crawl up slowly and then plunging overnight. Once it hits rock bottom, it will be another steady ride upwards.
I woke up this morning to the pleasant surprise that I'd somehow got two Google.com page views during the night, so now I'm at five. . . .which just barely breaks the tie that I had going with Google Denmark.
I keep waiting for the big plunge but my traffic is currently off the hook....it will probably plunge as soon as I hit submit on this comment. It took me 8 weeks to go from 30,000 to 40,000 hits....in the last three weeks I have already had 7,000 hits and at this pace I could hit 50,000 in another week or two.
I've seen a massive drop on one hub since I added a summary to it, I won't be adding anymore summaries until I know whats going on. My best hub is still 2nd on Google, however, I we might be losing traffic from other search engines that are making sense of the sub domain switch
Putting in the whole of your copper pipe title in quotation marks, I found it through Google. However, a lot of your other hubs showed up. You have a section at the bottom of each hub, which features your other titles even when these have nothing to do with the topic of the hub on which the list appears. This list includes the first sentence or summary of each hub listed. Going by what has been said in other threads, it is likely that you are being penalised for duplicate content as a result of this.
I think this might be the RSS issue other forum threads talk about, although since I do not totally understand what RSS is, I can't be sure.
My google adsense was doing fine , and when i logged in after two months they need to verify like 6 things. I moved and now i have to wait for my pin to start making revenue again. My hubs hardly ever get any traffic, but i'll be patient.
I agree with you, Paul. Hubpages has been a struggle for me from the get go. It seems as if every time I begin to see some light at the end of the tunnel, something happens, and I am back at step one. It also makes me angry at myself because had I spent the time and effort I've put into Hubpages on my own website, I am sure I'd be doing much better now. At least, I learned along the way what I need to do be successful on my own websites. However, it does nothing to inspire me when other hubbers say "keep writing...be positive...etc. Until this ship rights itself and becomes stable, I am not going to keep applying wasted effort. That may be negative, but that's the way I feel.
My traffic also came back to its levels before the plunge. It recovered yesterday. The plunge seemed to last about a week. I think it's because google has to reevaluate each subdomain. During the period all my keywords and hubs were sandboxed. They were all on page 50+.
You can check to make sure your subdomain hasn't been deindexed by typing site:yoursubdomain.hubpages.com
Google should should return all the results from your subdomain which means it's still indexed in google. Other than that sit tight.
Yah I just checked you are still there. I'm not sure if you were ranking why you haven't come back . Google sends out spiders maybe google hasn't got around to your subdomain yet. Maybe you haven't updated your pages in awhile. You could try updating them slightly to get google to crawl your pages. Sometimes updating can help. Your content is really helpful so I'm thinking your traffic will be even better after all this is sorted out. I know it is frustrating and if something is wrong hopefully hubpages can figure it out.
I'm probably going to curse myself, but after a six to eight week (august 23 through October 18) period where I saw a pattern of 4-5 day surge, 1 week plunge I'm seeing very steady traffic - it's been steady for the...
By "the plunge", I mean specifically mean suddenly losing over 80% of traffic during the period from the 10th August* up until the present (technically speaking, it's the google traffic that goes, of course,...
Anybody else dipping in traffic as of yesterday Oct 14? Apparently, Google made another algorithm change, and my traffic has taken a bit of a plunge because of it. Anyone else experiencing similar results?
My secondary account has suffered a 95% drop in traffic over the weekend -presumably as a result of the latest Panda run (Oct 13th). I have turned Hub ads off on this account but I'm still getting the 40% Hub...
I'm curious to see how long I can expect to be in the depths of Google's sandbox.I've noticed that people rise and fall in waves, depending on when you switched over to the subdomains, so I want to get a general idea as...
