    Well, I'm not sure if I got lucky or whatever, but my traffic has started rising a little. Hopefully Google will show us some love for Xmas, it is starting to look that way.

    How has your traffic been the last couple of days?

    If you want to make money, organic Google traffic is the best,easiest way. Hopefully things will get back to where they were this time last year so we could all make a killing for xmas!

        I have a good feeling. I'm liking where Hubpages is heading, still waiting on the video section.

        It seems like they test for certain keywords, remove yours from the top for a while and put it back up to compare with and without... I don't know I just don't get it.

          I sent them some feedback yesterday to see if they could add more share buttons with other sites so we can spread the word more.

    I'm beginning to notice that visitors are ignoring my brilliant prose, and doing the slide views instead. I don't know whether to be disconcerted or happy. neutral

    Build it and they will come.  After getting canned from Ebay and losing over 2500 a month in income 2 years ago I just do it.  I still make money online but with much less focus.  Now I have fun.  I write and focus on having fun.  Some hubs, some articles get a ton of traffic while others get nothing.  The way I see it now is the more the merrier.  Just keep building hubs, keep updating my sites and blogs and keep writing articles and every month its more and more money.

    I'm still in the sandbox. I have done something to anger Google - not sure what it is. I've completely stopped writing until I can figure out what the problem is...

    Over the past week, the big G. started to send some traffic my way.  My traffic went from horrible to extremely bad.

    Then, over the past few days, my traffic started to plunge again.  Mind you, it didn't have a long way to drop!

    Today, with 92 Hubs, I've received O (yes, ZERO!!!) organic page views from Google.

    From September 22, 2011 through October 13, 2011, I was receiving less than 10 organic page views a day from Google.  On October 14, 2011 until yesterday, my traffic popped, getting 50 to nearly 120 page views a day from G.  Definitely pathetic, but better than nothing.

    Again, today, what little traffic I was getting came to a crashing halt!  My traffic over at Squidoo and on my personal sites increased nicely today.  Clearly, the big G. is making tweaks.

      I only started  about 20 days ago, what would a reasonable amount of traffic be for 6 hubs over 20 days. In the last week I have been using external sites like twitter to encourage traffic. I spend at least 6 hrs a day promoting Hubpages.
      How do you get organic page views?
