Would any of the team care to look at my account and try and work out what the goddamn is going on?
I'm happy to share my stats with you direct. I had an 8 day (massive) surge in October. Then flatlined. Now it's happening again. I have never seen such random behaviour before.
It's certainly very odd.
@ Paradigm - Looks to be Google. Started this afternoon. I just think it disturbing. I'm fine with it down, I've got used to it. I hit the floor post-panda. I accepted it. Even the sub-domain change was no great shakes for me. But when you look at the rise and fall in the last few weeks, it's like watching a train-wreck.
It looks like the AI of the Internet is still trying to make up its mind about you.
You are a PR 3.
I use SEOBOOK plugin on FireFox for this, which contains a link to:

which will let you see the PR of any page.
@ Barbara - yup it's a 3. Doesn't mean anything revenue wise though.
I have a decent page rank and have been plunging and surging since October 13 (mostly plunging) - it all seems rather random. The surge was really nice, though - too bad it didn't "stick." I liked the monies!
I do wish someone would find out what was going on - I don't like the constant swings.
My traffic patterns here on HubPages are very similar to what you're describing, frogdropping! My personal blogs have started behaving similarly, too!
The only realm of consistency for me has been the performance of my lenses over at Squidoo.
I had one surge at the start of September than lasted less than 2 days, but was wonderful for a time
Congrats on your latest one - enjoy the ride!
My second (new account) with 39 hubs has just plunged, and lost ALL its search engine traffic in the last 24 hours.
My main account keeps creeping downwards. I wish I knew what was going on.

Looks like Google made another algo change earlier this week. My traffic rose about 25% on my main HP account around this time, so I'm guessing the update was the cause. My traffic is still low by historical standards (down by more than a third from the start of the year), but I...

Patty Inglish is helping moderate the group so you know it's legit! Let me know if you can't find the community and I'll help you out. The world of online journalism is changing and, in my opinion, Google+ is a very necessary next step! I'm sure many hubbers have already taken the plunge, but if...

I know I'm starting another lost traffic thread, (geesh, enough already), but...Here's why. As it has been noted, HP has suffered, site-wide - all of us - even the touted success stories, traffic loss due to Google's year-long algo changes. That's the BIG problem that is almost only solvable by...

Paul, I've emailed you google links for what I think are duplicate listings - the kind that glitched a few months ago and were causing traffic to drop from google.Is it happening again, or am I mistaken?Isa

With the subdomain changes, I am hearing a lot about the "+1" button that can offer a positive impact on readership and/or page rank. Not technically savvy, I am wondering how to use the +1. Can anyone explain in 'VERY simple terms' how to get the +1 operational, implement its function,...
