Seachmetrics track rankings for keywords, and have published a winners and losers list for the latest panda update. You can see it here:
http://blog.searchmetrics.com/us/2011/1 … pdate-2-5/
Some pretty big names on the losers list.
However hubpages was a winner, in terms of the number of keywords it is now ranking well for. Here's the graph:
Even though Quantcast shows that in traffic, Hubpages has not recovered to pre-Panda levels, in terms of the number of keywords it is ranking for, it is exceeding pre-Panda. Pre-Panda Hubpages was visible for about 500,000 keywords, it is now 750,000 keywords
Hopefully all the publicity surrounding this will bring back the good advertisers and our CPM will rise!
Having just got 20 hits off 160 hubs, excuse me whilst I celebrate the sucess in general but as an individual sob out loud!
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to be hurtful by posting that graph.
It's just hubpages has been through so much, with so many advertisers deserting and so many hubbers reporting CPM halved, I was just hoping that the publicity around this new visibility will bring the advertisers back.
Also - there'll be another panda run in a month's time and you might come back with that.
Thank you for sharing this great news, Silver Rose! That's great to hear!
This is good news! So if a site has a better reputation and ranking, advertisers will spend more money on their advertising campaigns?
I think so.
Hpads was launched just as Panda hit, and I think the advertisers were signed up prior to Panda, because the CPM was pretty good. However, most of the good advertisers have gone and my CPM at least has halved since March. But hopefully this news means that the hubpages sales team can entice the advertisers back.
All advertisers want is their stuff to be on places that are seen by as many searchers as possible. So they should come back, especially with Christmas looming.
At least I hope this is the case!
The last few days has been better for me, after a dismal period. I didn't notice the CPM as much when I didn't have any traffic, but now that I have a little bit, it does make quite a big difference.
Your assessment is probably correct, methinks.
Thanks for this Silver Rose. My traffic graph on both accounts looks similar to this. Noticed a bit of upheaval around 28th but don't think Panda 2.5 has done me any harm. Here's hoping that those good writers who have 'plunged' will find their traffic (and earnings)on the rise with 2.5!
The changes in earnings were largely caused by changes to ad layouts as we addressed Panda. In the official forum you can see some things we are doing to increase earnings.
Over the next several months we have a number of items that should continue to drive yields up.
