we've had a number of topic posts on this subject and here's another.
The blogger mentioned something out of my control--the number of ads on a hub... I've heard this before from friends who read some hubs and told me there were too many ads...
I thought this was very sensible and easy to understand.
I have worked on my hubs (many too much ) trying to improve traffic to no avail.
it may be time to delete some or post elsewhere.
Read the blog and see if this doesn't help.
I couldn't even read that (at the link) because of all the red and flashing, giant, popping and dropping, ads on it. If whoever wrote it offers some good advice to people, great - but I don't think I'd pay much attention to something that, itself, is objectionably loaded with over-the-top ads.
(I don't mean to be at all negative about your thread here. I don't doubt there may be some good advice for the person who stand to stay on that site long enough to find, and read it. I just thought, though, since I couldn't stay there myself, it might be worth being candid about it. )
wow that certainly didn't show that the first time.I deleted the link..sorry I don't know what happened...
I went back, and it was worse. I got stuck with a couple/few of the orange/red ads and couldn't get out of it. The page was loading slowly, and there was that freezing type of situation that goes on when too much stuff is going on. I couldn't even click the page down. BUT, not everyone as impatient as I am with some things.
i never had that happen before...the article was good but the address link was bad..my firewall and other safeguards didn't catch it..
I hope i removed the link before anyone was adversely affected..
I am actually a little disappointed that I missed it! The garish ads sounded rather dramatic and exciting!
(Yes, I know, I need to get a life! hehe!)
do you really want it..I'll find it and you too can get a virus..LOL
Oh.. They were definitely exciting. (I know they were about the most exciting thing I've had in my life in the last week or so at least .)
I would be surprised if the amount of ads on Hubpages are getting penalized: other sites not dinged by Panda have even more garish advertising. If anything, my traffic has gone up on one of those sites (I hate the ads, but I like getting $43 per article on top articles.)
It's possible that the arrangement of ads on Hubs is a factor. It took me a while to get used to ads in what I think of as the "body" of the article (that half-width column). But there's no way to know what Google thinks of that.
In fact, that's the Panda Problem in a nutshell. Everyone's guessing what the factors are, but other than Google's Guide to Panda which emphasizes trust and user experience, Google has given us few clues about what Panda is looking for. Therefore people can only say, "my traffic went up/down and I have x/y" without being able to know whether the factors they've noticed are the ones Google is actually looking at.
Hubpages changed their ad layout to make it less spammy, and overall this site is up - see the following from searchmetrics which shows the winners and losers. In terms of visibility for keywords hubpages is up by about 10% since last week when panda 2.5 hit

I am puzzled because even when my traffic gets a bit better (low for some, but still good for me right now), my CTR rate for Google is almost always nothing. I get something from Google about once a month, if that, with 58 hubs written. Does anyone else find the CTR quite poor for hubpages, or is...

Hi All:My hub traffic has dropped by around 35 to 40 percent over the last couple of days. I know I've read other forum posts from people who were experiencing this, but because my traffic wasn't dropping, I didn't pay good attention. Anyway, any advice would be appreciated. I've been on HP for two...

Just found a very interesting article about Google Panda:http://themoralconcept.net/pandalist.htmlThe author (Josh Bachynski) has gone through thousands of hours of Google Webmaster hangouts conducted by John Mueller (Google employee), plus combed through official announcements by other Googlers at...

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 Pages share with full ads. I there for wonder whether turning them off is...

Well I finally had my first Post-Panda incident with disabled ads. I'm guessing it's because there is a picture of a girl in a (gasp!) bikini on it. I e-mailed the Team to see what is wrong for sure, so I'll wait for their reply. I cant post a link to said Hub because that would be promoting. But...
