Pretty new Hubber.:)

    I have been on Hubpages for almost a month. I have had several Hub views, and I am very happy with the site.smile

    Just curious, in the last couple of day my Hubviews have dropped tremendously. Just curious, is there is any technical issues going on with the site?  I thought that the view count might be down or something. 

    Thanks for the help in advance.

      Older hubbers who have lots of aged content are experiencing a mixed bag of subdomain related problems. However, this is NOT your issue.

      You published your first hub 3 weeks ago.

      Usually, in the first few weeks after publishing a hub, you'll get an influx of internal (other hubbers) traffic. That usually falls off after a few weeks, as your hub is no longer ranked as new or up in everyone's feed - that's what is happening to you now.

      If you write content that has good keywords and is likely to attract search engine visitors, then after a little while you'll start seeing Google hits etc.

      That said, creative writing is one where you're unlikely to get many search engine visitors or earn much.

      If you are talking about weekends than all people are not like us ...

      They visit some other places and have great time on weekends.

      So let the weekdays arrived and I think everything will be back on track.

    I've been wondering since Thursday evening if the "view count" or traffic to hubs has dropped some too. Just this afternoon it seems to have increased some, and hope it keeps doing that. Mine seemed to take a 30% dip.

    Weekends are always slower.

    I see that you are a new hubber, but not pretty !!  big_smile

    The up and down traffic has been going on for months and is the subject of several threads.    The general consensus is not to worry about it or you will stop writing hubs (like me) and it will probably be all right given a bit of time - especially when google stops changing the rules and HP stops trying to second guess them.

      I think you should write more hubs, I would read them. Perhaps not a good enough reason for you to write them, you have your own reasons, just saying. smile

        They are coming - my business is seasonal and the period now to January/February is the time to promote it with content and hubs.

        Thank you for your interest and I hope they do not disappoint when they start coming smile

    The weekends are rather slow and traffic does seem to come in fits and starts..The panda effect..but for you it may just be that the newness is wearing off and internal traffic is slowing down.. Interacting on the forums,reading and commenting on the hubs of others does help .. try that smile
