    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.

      Is this all google or did another website jump in to cause this?

      @ 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.

        Your profile is ranked a 3. That's actually good, because that is all most of the top earners are. This doesn't make sense. I like to see how this all comes out in the end.

      It looks like the AI of the Internet is still trying to make up its mind about you. big_smile

        How do you find out your profile ranking?

          You are a PR 3.

          I use SEOBOOK plugin on FireFox for this, which contains a link to:

 … mp;pc=MOZI

          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! smile

      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 smile

      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.
