    Just wanted to post that I have officially recovered from the plunge of aug 8.  Dont know if I might plunge again or what?  What I did.  I went and did some very minor modifications to 5 of my hubs to show google this was an active account.  Also deleted one of my hubs that I wrote on aug6 that I thought maybe it was being considered as duplicate content.  Yesterday 7 views.  This morning up to 110.

      Wonderful, my plunge is also recovering. Traffic started moving back up yesterday. I didn't do anything to my hubs though.

    Don't celebrate until it lasts.  I recovered for one day, then went right back down.

    Great news!  Now, as you say, if it will only stay up.

    I had recovered but today I plunged big time. It's almost as if google is rotating the plunges and surges amongst hubbers.

      Don't say that!  I was enjoying some stability!  ;-)

      My traffic  was down for 6 days, but has now been up for 11 days.

      Every time I publish a hub though, I am soooo nervous that I am going to trip some switch and plunge again!

      I hope you turnaround soon, toygurus!

        Congrats Paul. After my traffic stabilized I decided to publish a hub now my traffic is at an all time low. I don't think any of this is predictable. Oh well.

    I had a great weekend with a big surge and now it's starting to drop..I hope it stops..sad

      I hope it does too, Stacie.  Tuesday is always the day I begin to see a slow drop until next Sunday - maybe that's all it is.

    I am facing the same problem, but I thought that would be normal as traffic is generally greater on the weekends and drops as people are back to their day jobs.

      I've always had the opposite experience - higher traffic during the week with the main peek on Tuesday or Wednesday.  The weekends generally drop by about 25% or more.

    I don't think it has anything to do with tweaking or not tweaking hubs.  My traffic had quintupled (is that a word?) since yesterday!  Exciting, but I've been on this ride before!

          Ha ha. I picture a monkey just pushing all the switches every now and then. This sub domain thing has beenan absolute rollercoaster ride. Except it's not as fun.

      I'm really glad your traffic is back. Keep your fingers crossed.

    I plunged again starting yesterday sometime. Last time this happened I went tweaking keyword density etc. this time I'm not going to bother as I'm almost convinced these plunges have nothing to do with the actual content of my subdomain and everything to do with Google being Google.

    Second account plunged just over a week ago.  No recovery as of yet. 

    Main account plunged today.

    Yay!

    Traffic yesterday 7.  Traffic today 316.  Never had this much traffic ever.  I also have deleted any questionable hubs in previous couple weeks.  Hope it lasts.

    Yes my traffic has been going down for a few days, slowly but still going the wrong way!

      My traffic has shown a 400% increase  (with a steady consistent rise) since the subdomain drop (with usual fall over the weekend) - no real plunges but some variation. BUT have I published about 30 hubs in the last month. I'm not boasting but simply stating the facts. I removed RSS and added summaries, no other changes. My new hubs attract more traffic because I spend about 20 minutes optimizing the keywords and titles. I think many other hubbers have shown similar steady improvements but are reluctant to say so and be accused of boasting. I hope the yeast works for everyone else soon!

    I'm seeing a lot of red arrows and traffic rises across all hubs today, although it is just one hub that remains the biggest breadwinner.
